All who wanted and who could have spoken out on this topic for a long time, but I did not participate in this, because I was busy studying and highlighting other problems of our society. However, the concept of “late” does not apply to such acts of the enemies of the human race, since crimes of this kind are particularly grave (this is genocide!), And they have no statute of limitations! Therefore, friends, get ready, now I will burn your hearts with the "verb of truth"!
A well-known journalist and TV presenter Arkady Mamontov some time ago released a number of TV programs about the dangerous palm oil, with which world food manufacturers have been poisoning the peoples of the planet for the second decade in a row (and Russians are among the first!), Adding it wherever possible, even to baby food.
Commentary on this frame from the film: Arkady Mamontov says:
"This is a bottle of natural red palm oil, and it costs 1,800 rubles per liter …"
You can watch A. Mamontov's film at this link:
As you can see, the cost of 1 liter of natural palm oil is at least ten times higher than the cost of a liter of sunflower oil! Later, I will clearly and popularly explain why this is so.
In the meantime, here is a certificate from the English-language Wikipedia (in the Russian-language Wikipedia this information is completely absent), which explains how, along with expensive palm oil, rich in various vitamins, there can be very cheap palm oil that cripples the human cardiovascular system:
Palm oil is an edible vegetable oil derived from the mesocarp (reddish pulp) of the fruit of the oil palms, primarily the African oil palm Elaeis guineensis, and to a lesser extent from the American oil palm Elaeis oleifera and the maripa palm Attalea maripa …
The use of palm oil in food products has attracted the concern of environmental activist groups; the high oil yield of the trees has encouraged wider cultivation, leading to the clearing of forests in parts of Indonesia to make space for oil-palm monoculture. This has resulted in significant acreage losses of the natural habitat of the three surviving species of orangutan. One species in particular, the Sumatran orangutan, has been listed as critically endangered.
Synthetic palm oil also exists and can be made from carbon-containing waste (i.e. food waste, glycerol) by means of yeast … ".
Palm oil is an edible vegetable oil derived from the mesocarp (reddish pulp) of oil palm fruits, primarily the African palm oil Elaeis guinensis, and to a lesser extent from the American palm oil Elaeis oleifera and Attalea maripa palm.

The high yields of the trees stimulated wider cultivation, which led to the clearing of forests in parts of Indonesia to create space for oil and palm monoculture. One species, notably the Sumatran orangutan, has been listed as critically endangered.
Synthetic palm oil also exists and can be obtained from carbon waste (ie food waste, glycerin) using yeast."
If natural palm oil is really produced from the fruit of palm trees, and this oil is not cheap at all, then synthetic palm oil costs a little more than water, as it is a by-product of oil refining.
I will immediately explain what glycerin is as a substance from which carcinogenic synthetics are mainly made - the so-called "palm oil".
“Glycerin (from the Greek γλυκερός - sweet) is an organic compound, the simplest representative of trihydric alcohols with the formula C3H5 (OH) 3. It is a viscous transparent liquid with a sweet taste. Non-toxic, unlike, for example, the simplest dihydric alcohols. Synonyms: glycerol, propanetriol-1, 2, 3. Most of the synthetic methods for producing glycerin are based on the use of propylene as a starting product. Allyl chloride is obtained by chlorination of propylene at 450-500 ° C, when hypochlorous acid is added to the latter, chlorohydrins are formed, for example, CH2ClCHOHCH2Cl, which, when saponified with alkali, turn into glycerin …"
What is propylene as a starting product for the production of glycerin?
Please, here is another reference to answer this question:
“Propylene (propene, methylethylene) CH2 = CH-CH3 is an organic substance, an unsaturated hydrocarbon from the alkenes class. Under normal conditions, it is a colorless gas with a slight unpleasant odor.It is a by-product of oil refining …"
“For the production of propylene, the main process is fluid catalytic cracking, in which the catalyst is used as a fluidized bed. During this process, heavy gas oil is converted into gasoline and light gas oil. In this case, propylene is obtained in an amount of 3%, but its share can be increased to 20% by modifying the catalyst …"
And one more reference:
"Cracking (eng. Cracking, splitting) - high-temperature processing of oil and its fractions in order to obtain, as a rule, products of lower molecular weight - motor fuel, lubricating oils, etc. …"
And now glycerin is first made from propylene at the same refinery, and synthetic so-called "palm oil" is made from glycerin with the help of yeast. Here it is worth mere pennies, in view of the fact that it is made from oil refinery waste!
Now see why the cost of natural palm oil is ten times higher than the cost of sunflower oil we are used to.
Sowing sunflower, harvesting and processing it is all a high-tech process.
Sunflower can be sown relatively easily and can be harvested relatively easily using combines:
Ripe sunflower seeds are also quite easily separated from everything else with the help of mechanization, and in the end vegetable oil is squeezed out of them using powerful presses.
Now check out where natural palm oil comes from!
Here is an oil palm plantation in front of you:
This is how the harvest takes place manually. The palm tree bears fruit all year round, so the fruit must be removed from it without damaging the palm tree itself.
As you can see, it is not for you to harvest the sunflower harvest with a combine! That is why a liter of natural palm oil costs like a good cognac - under 2 thousand rubles per liter!
And here's some information for you to think about:
“For every hectare of oil palm harvested all year round, annual production averages 20 tonnes of fruit yielding 4,000 kg of palm oil and 750 kg of seed kernels yielding 500 kg of high quality palm kernel oil and 600 kg of bark …” Source:
That is, the yield per hectare of oil palm is 4.5 tons per year. So after all, sunflower, which is harvested only once a year, at the end of summer, the yield per hectare is not much lower!
Information from 2019-16-10:
Sunflower harvest in Krasnodar Territory increased by 25%
“Enterprises of the Krasnodar Territory have harvested more than 1.8 million tons of sunflower from an area of 439.3 thousand hectares. This is 25% (218 thousand tons) more than last year. As specified in the regional ministry of agriculture and processing industry, the largest volumes of sunflower were collected by the farmers of the Novopokrovsky, Kanevsky and Kushchevsky districts.
In addition, it is reported that the yield of sunflower has increased by 3.9 c / ha. It amounted to 24.6 kg / ha (i.e. 2, 46 tons per hectare). The ministry attributed this to the fact that in 2018 the harvest was lower than usual due to unfavorable weather conditions."
Then watch the hands (tongue!) Of the scammers! I will quote the Russian-language Wikipedia, in which there is not a word about the production of synthetic "palm oil":
“Palm oil is a vegetable oil obtained from the flesh of the fruit of the oil palm (Elaeis guineensis). The oil from the seeds of this palm tree is called palm kernel oil. One of the oldest food products of mankind, known as far back as Ancient Egypt. Crude (red) palm oil surpasses sunflower oil in vitamin E both in the amount and in the number of tocotrienol groups. (This, as Andrei Mamontov said, costs 1,800 rubles per liter! Commentary - A.B.). Palm oil is widely used in food production; for example, Nestlé, the world's largest food producer, buys 420,000 tonnes of palm oil a year.Besides food, palm oil is used to make biofuels, cosmetics, shampoos and other products.
Since 2016, the global production of palm oil has exceeded the production of other vegetable oils, including soybean, rapeseed and sunflower oil.
The largest palm oil producers are Indonesia and Malaysia. World production of palm oil in 2005 - about 47 million tons. Since 2016, palm oil has surpassed the production of soybean oil, rapeseed oil and took the first place among the production of vegetable oils, outstripping the production of sunflower oil by 2, 5 times. As of 2019, more than 73 million tons of palm oil are produced in the world …"
I would like to ask, and all these 73 million tons of palm oil are produced in such a manual way? But there is no other way! The palm tree must not be damaged! She should bear fruit all year round!
If palm oil extracted in this way costs 1,800 rubles per liter, or even more, then where do millions of tons of purportedly purified palm oil come from in the same food market, which is sold at bargain prices ?!
How can the goods processed at the factory become ten times cheaper than raw materials under capitalism ?
Below is a schematic process for the production of crude and refined palm oil (drawing from the Russian-language Wikipedia):
It is at this technological stage that a massive swindle of the peoples of the world takes place!
So that you understand everything, reader, now I will quote one scandalous article from 2013, which was published in Rossiyskaya Gazeta:
The author of this article, journalist Sergei Volkov, was outraged at the time by the fact that "low-quality palm oil" is transported across Russia in oil product tanks!
S. Volkov did not have the wit then to guess that the "low-quality palm oil" he had just mentioned, transported in tanks from oil products, is a product of oil refining! And that for every ton of natural palm oil entering our country, there is at least 100 tonnes of synthetic so-called “palm oil”, obtained from glycerin, which in turn is obtained from propylene, a by-product formed during the cracking of crude oil.
Otherwise, where would one get that wild cheapness of "palm oil", which all dishonest Russian food producers are obsessed with today ?!
“Why did tropical oil appear on our food market at all? Yes, precisely because this is a market, and products made with palm oil cost the manufacturer half the price. In addition, the law does not clearly distinguish between edible palm oil and technical palm oil. It is as if the state itself is pushing an unscrupulous entrepreneur to manufacture counterfeit goods. And you need to have remarkable decency to resist such a temptation …"
We, the reader, already know that 1 liter of natural palm oil is several times more expensive than our sunflower oil. Then, pay attention to the question: where did our domestic producers have a strong conviction that "food products made with palm oil cost at least half the price?"
I answer: from there, that in our food industry, oil synthetics, obtained from oil, are entirely used! And there is a lot of oil in the world.
Once again, the translation of the last paragraph: "Synthetic palm oil also exists and can be obtained from carbon waste using yeast."
And now I will cite the most valuable of what is written about palm oil in the Russian-language Wikipedia, in which there is not a word about synthetic palm oil, although in Russia it is used everywhere! For this reason, friends, everything that you read below about "vegetable oils" as applied specifically to Russia should be read - "synthetic oils".
The use of palm oil in the dairy industry
“Vegetable oils are widely used to create dairy products. Products such as margarine and spread are in high demand in the EU countries.
The requirements for these products are formed by the European Federation FEDIOL, which represents the vegetable oils and protein flour industry in Europe.
Spreads have a good buttery taste and spread easily on breads are essential attributes of retail margarine and home use spreads.
According to European standards, spreads are products with a fat content of at least 10%, but less than 90%, which remain solid at a temperature of 20 ° C. Margarine / fat pastes / mixtures and mixed spreads are water-in-oil emulsions obtained from vegetable / animal fats, with a milk fat content not exceeding 3% for margarines / fat spreads. For mixtures and blended spreads, the milk fat ranges from 10% to 80%.
The fat in margarine and spreads can be prepared from a wide variety of fat combinations and can be the result of several processes. The most common formulations used include mixtures of hydrogenated fat (s) and non-hydrogenated oils, mixtures of two or more hydrogenated fats, one hydrogenated fat, or a mixture of liquid non-hydrogenated oils transesterified with fully saturated fat.
In Russia, the Federal Law TR CU 033/2013 Technical Regulations of the Customs Union "On the Safety of Milk and Dairy Products" (as amended on December 20, 2017) (as amended on July 15, 2018) is in force. According to this document, the production of a number of dairy products is legally enshrined. In particular, "Creamy Vegetable Spread" is a milk-containing product with an emulsion fat-based milk fat substitute, in which the mass fraction of total fat is from 39 to 95 percent and the mass fraction of milk fat in the fat phase is from 50 to 95 percent;
"Creamy vegetable baked mixture" - a milk-containing product with a milk fat substitute, in which the mass fraction of total fat is at least 99 percent and which is produced from a creamy vegetable spread by melting the fat phase or using other technological methods;
Ice cream with vegetable fat - ice cream (milk-containing product), the mass fraction of vegetable fat or its mixture with milk fat in which is not more than 12 percent;
According to the requirements of TR CU 033/2013, the name of a milk-containing product with a milk fat substitute must begin with the words “milk-containing product with a milk fat substitute” (with the exception of a butter-vegetable spread, butter-vegetable baked mixture, ice cream with a milk fat substitute). Information on the technology for the production of a milk-containing product with a milk fat substitute is indicated in the form of the words "produced (manufactured) by technology" with an indication of the concept established by Section II for the corresponding milk product.
Thus, the use of vegetable oils (including palm) in the production of milk-containing products is legally regulated both in the European Union and in the Russian Federation and is absolutely legal, taking into account compliance with the labeling requirements … ".
As you can see, there are no restrictions on the use of natural vegetable oils (including palm oil) either in the European Union or in Russia! However, natural vegetable oils, including palm oil, are a completely different price category of goods that cannot be too cheap for a number of reasons, some of which I named at the very beginning of this article.
I would like to ask a rhetorical question: is this palm oil (as in the photo), which has the price of a good brandy, is it used in the production of cheap milk-containing products, which are now bought by poor Russians?
Of course not! Cheap foodstuffs are produced in Russia from cheap "palm oil" - synthetic, which is produced at chemical plants in the same Indonesia as a by-product of oil refining, and which is today the main reason for the growth of cardiovascular diseases and cancer among the population of Russia.
Well, how can Anatoly Chubais' trend be implemented differently? After all, back in 2011 at the next International Economic Forum, he said that in the next 50-100 years, the Earth's population will safely decrease from 7 billion to 2.5 billion, and possibly even to 1.5 billion people.
And what? So the population of the planet will decline, as they say, with the good intentions of various Chubais …
