We recently sat with Dr. Paul Wassell, Head of Research and Development at Golden Agri-Resources (GAR), to discuss the questions many people have on palm oil and its benefits to consumers and food manufacturers alike.
During our discussion, Dr. Wassell provided us with an overview of palm oil benefits and uses as an ingredient, where it is used and how it is being formulated to make our food healthier, and even cater to consumers who are lactose intolerant.
Watch this video to learn more about the functionality of palm oil and see past the common misconception that palm oil is unhealthy. In addition, find out more on how GAR is continually working to improve this extraordinary product.
GAR has recently unveiled a series of videos to shine a light on those behind palm oil, from farmers on the plantations through to the community teachers and food technologists. The Extraordinary Everyday campaign highlights the stories of the people behind responsible palm oil production. Watch Punjung’s video here.
