Do your products contain palm oil?

We use palm oil in some of our products because it has a fat composition with functional properties needed in these products. We are very aware of the problematic situation with palm oil production and therefore use certified, traceable palm oil. We strongly oppose the deforestation and exploitation that occur in the production of palm oil and are working closely with our supplier to ensure a sustainable production of the palm oil we purchase.

We are constantly reviewing our ingredients from a health and sustainability perspective. In May 2016, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) released a report on undesired substances that can be formed when refining vegetable oils; palm oil was found to have the highest levels. The palm oil we use in our products contains relatively low levels of these undesired substances; however, the potential health risks are something we take seriously. That's why we are gradually phasing out palm oil in our fat blends and switching to other saturated vegetable fats like fully hydrogenated coconut oil, fully hydrogenated rapeseed oil, and coconut oil, depending on the product. Since the risk of health effects related to the undesired substances is assessed as very low, we're currently updating our products with new fat blends .

  • You said you were currently updating the product in 2018 and it is now two years later. Are they updated? Or are you still using palm oii?
  • Hi Annie,

    We're in the process of swapping the palm oil for other saturated fats, and the only product left that contains this ingredient is our Organic Creamy Oat. We are updating this recipe as we speak to completely phase out the use of palm oil.

    Once the palm oil has been removed from Organic Creamy Oat recipe, the list of ingredients on the packaging will change.

    All the best,
  • Hi, I really like your products so can you tell me when this will be completed? I would like to buy them again after that. Thanks! Antonia
