Palm kernel oil in weight loss products?
I was somewhat surprised to see palm kernel oil, fractionated palm kernel oil and a partially hydrogenated oil listed as ingredients in nutrition bars that a local medical weight loss clinic mandates to be ingested 2-3 times a day.
Is this widespread or not? When I asked about these substances specifically no-one was willing to address the health hazards associated with them, but went on a spiel about how their program does work, etc. etc. etc. They got downright pissy that I dared to challenge their products.
