Great find thanks heat
I really wish they would remove the palm oil so I'd be happy to buy it. I'm not a vegan or vegetarian, but I still don't agree with the destruction of vital habitat for something which isn't even necessary. I know you could claim it's sustainable now, but that's only a result of clearing enough ground already.

Not knocking the deal itself, it's a good price! I'd be interested to hear other side's of the palm oil debate?

wholeearthfoods.com/pal…il/ they seem to have a good approach to it. And frankly palm oil if sustainable farmed is way better environmentally than other oils given its relative yields etc. It's also hard to replace in some products.

Or they could make it without any oil at all.

Perfect, thank you for your reply! I regularly buy palm oil free peanut butters so I'm aware it does require a small level of stiring as a result of separation.

I recognise in other products it could have further uses I might not be aware of. However I don't think in the case of peanut butter you'd substitute it with a different oil.

My real question isn't is the result of this palm oil creating deforestation. More is the land which is currently used, once forest land which has been taken. Without human intervention would this be reclaimed by the forest? I'd be very interested to hear the animal ecology of the area before and after and see if new ecosystems have been created. Hopefully they'll be able to supply animal populations counts bringing some clarity to the diversity of life.

I see they have a get in touch section I do have some several questions!

I really appreciate you sending the link, it's interesting to consider other perspectives. Especially for the people of Indonesia, who I found to be some of the kindest and most welcoming of people.

Its great to hear Whole Earth are engaged in their product and have offered reasons for adding it to their ingredients!

I agree. Fortunately Manilife 1kg tubs are also on offer at Waitrose for £8.50 which are palm oil free. I’ll definitely be picking up a couple of those.

I've always wondered that as well. I don't particularly enjoy the texture of Whole Earth and I think it's to do with the palm oil but that could be because I'm used to 100% peanut butter from Meridian/Aldi and right now Aldi is hard to beat on price41770962-7yGh2.jpg

The Aldi foodie market is now £3.49 in my local Aldi 50p off .. even better bargain.
