    Is palm oil bad for your health?

    It is a vegetable oil, naturally without cholesterol, which is composed for half of saturated fatty acids (mainly palmitic acid) and for the other half, mainly unsaturated fatty acids. 

    In fact, it is preferable to consume unsaturated fatty acids. However, saturated fatty acids can be included in our daily diet up to a maximum of 12% of daily energy intake.

    Unfortunately, there is no “perfect” food that contains everything we need in the right proportions to ensure a balanced diet. There is no such thing as a “bad” food that can harm our health, unless it is consumed in unreasonable quantities.
