Going palm oil free
Is it possible to completely avoid palm oil?

The pizza dilemma …

Pizza is one of the things I’ve had trouble with – previous posts have mentioned that I have yet to find any pizzas, fresh or frozen, in my Sainsbury’s supermarket, guaranteed to have no palm oil.

It seems the solution has been there under my nose – Pizza Express pizzas! I hadn’t looked at them until now due to the fact they cost so much more, but a price offer has drawn them to my attention, and it seems the only oil included in the ingredients is rapeseed oil.

I say this with caution – I don’t make this claim on ingredients for all products throughout the range, or whether other branded products such as breads and salad dressings are palm oil free or not. Further checks suggest that the pizza range and the dressing range are palm oil free, but the breads (for example the garlic dip supplied with dough balls) are not.

But I can say with confidence that the “Sloppy Giuseppe” pizzas are palm oil free. So, for this week, that is still good news for me, and will do just fine. Neglecting any brand or company that has palm oil use elsewhere in its range is a far harder challenge and I salute any of my followers who are doing just that.

There may be a bit more of a dent in my weekly shopping bill from now, but a switch to Pizza Express pizzas is one more palm oil offender removed …

  1. Are they more expensive? Just wondering if Palm oil is perhaps cheaper so therefore it’s why its used in most things?

  2. Helpful info. Fortunate me I discovered your web site by accident,
    and I’m shocked why this coincidence didn’t
    happened in advance! I bookmarked it.
