Does anyone know what palm/palm kernel oil is? My PA son is also allergic to coconut and I was wondering if palm oil is from the coconut palm. Also coconut oil is in EVERYTHING. I've heard of people with a coconut allergy being able to eat coconut oil. Do you think this is safe or playing with fire?

Just thought I'd let you know I got an answer from FAAN about palm oil. It is the oil for the hard kernels from the palm tree. It is not coconut oil but resembles same and is used in place of coconut oil. I would think this means that it is okay.
