    Question lesser of two evil oils

    Primal Fuel
    If you had to choose between soybean oil vs. refined palm oil, which would you pick? I currently use a packaged condiment containing soybean oil, but today I found a brand which uses palm oil...are both equally bad, or is one less so than the other?

    I'd pick the refined palm oil. Unrefined is actually primal-ly okay, so just as a hunch, I'd go for the refined palm rather than the soybean oil. You don't want those nasty GMOs.

    Palm oil is fine. There aren't supposed to be any "leftover" chemicals from the refining process (assuming it's chemically refined rather than mechanically), and it's a mostly saturated fat from a tropical plant.

    def the palm oil, actually on a scale of badness I don't think its really that bad anyways but considering how I react to soy.. (Not pretty) its no contest
    Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.
