Hi Gerry

Palm oil is a saviour? The global demand for palm oil? Hmmmm.

I think that palm oil and "modified" palm oil is basically a replacement for trans fats, and is shoved at us by the food industry. The only demand for it might be the Weston Price Foundation followers who think sat fat is a superfood.

I notice here in Canada that I can't find many "wraps" that don't have it in (the Ezekiel wraps are an exception).

I can tell the oily wraps by feel, I don't even need to read the ingredients, they have a squelchy feel to them (this helps them bend around the filling I guess).

Cheers, Steve
