Palm Oil -free Brands

🌴CONFLICT PALM OIL  is the world’s least expensive vegetable oil.

Palm kernel oil is unhealthy for the human body and it is responsible for human rights abuses, land grabs, and rainforest destruction.

Its irresponsible cultivation in tropical areas is causing Orangutan Extinction. Report from rainforest action network.

Palm Oil is found in many packaged food, and other products such as lipsticks, shampoos, soaps, and detergents.

More than 85% of the palm oil in America's packaged food is grown on palm oil plantations in Indonesia and Malaysia where it is associated with child labor and forced labor.

Palm oil isn't clearly labeled, IT IS IMPORTANT to recognize which products and brands are selling this critical ingredient in order to avoid it. FIRST, you need to learn how to identify it!

Palm oil goes by many names,  including Palm Kernel Oil, Palmitate, Glyceryl Stearate, Vegetable Oil, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate. The full list is below.

RAN’s Conflict Palm Oil campaign is asking the Snack Food 20* companies to eliminate Conflict Palm Oil from their production and is demanding only responsible palm oil from their suppliers.

🌴Palm Oil: Global brands profiting from child and forced labor

Unilever, Nestlé, Procter & Gamble are among nine household names contributing to labor abuse.

“Corporate giants like Colgate, Nestlé, and Unilever assure consumers that their products use ‘sustainable palm oil’, but our findings reveal that the palm oil is anything but. There is nothing sustainable about palm oil that is produced using child labor and forced labor. The abuses discovered within Wilmar’s palm oil operations are not isolated incidents but are systemic and a predictable result of the way Wilmar does business.

Amnesty International says it will campaign to ask the firms to tell customers whether the palm oil in popular products like Magnum ice-cream, Colgate toothpaste, Dove cosmetics, Knorr soup, KitKat, Pantene shampoo, Ariel, and Pot Noodle comes from Wilmar’s Indonesian operation.

Sjaak's Certified Organic Candies 
USDA Certified Organic Chocolate, Vegan, Gluten-free, dairy-free

💐I have been searching for better chocolate since I learned that conventional candy companies use unhealthy ingredients such as high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and artificial vanillin and bone char sugar!
😮Yes, bone char is used to bleach and filter refined sugar! According to @peta: if you want vegan sugar, avoid all refined sugar, alternatives are Sucanat and turbinado which are not filtered with bone char. Or choose beet sugar! 🐰 ​

Their entire collection is USDA certified organic, non-GMO, dairy-free, fair trade certified, plant-based, certified Kosher and Vegan: this means they contain no animal ingredients such as milk, butter, eggs or gelatin! ✨🍫 Even their “Melk” chocolate is vegan and complete dairy-free as well!
