How to detect palm oil in a product ( a SHORT CUT) 

Early in 2013 I created a shortcut to the ever growing list of alternate names for palm oil which I created in 2009 / 2010 to try to make it a little easier for lay people to research a product.

If an ingredient has the combination of following letters within one of the words of an ingredient then there is a possibility that it is derived from palm oil...or at best need further investigation...

Cear  SLS  myr  peg  poly  gly  laur  palm  stea  capry  Cetyl  cetear  Elaeis   ethyl   ole  poly  

Cocoa butter equivalent (CBE) 

Cocoa butter substitute (CBS)

if you look at the list below you will see what I mean..

calcium, sodium, magnesium salts of fatty acids (470/E470a; E470b)
