My son's teacher asked about palm oil today and I told her it was safe. I always assumed it was; does anyone know any different? I looked it up and it seems like it is from the "fruit" of the palm tree. Palm kernal oil is from the seed of the fruit. I am not sure if this is correct...it was on Wikepedia and it said it need to be edited for accuracy. There is a date palm as well, or is it the same thing? My son has eated things with Palm oil in it and no problems. Is this ok?

My children have also eaten it without problems. I don't remember if I looked into it when I first found out about PA.

Palm oil has proven fine, nut it is not a nut.
I only became aware of Shea oil, now that I stay away from , just in case as I am not willing for my child to try and see if she reacts.
