PALM OIL DECLARATION

Use of palm oil in MARLENKA products
High-quality margarine is used in the products of the firm MARLENKA international, s. r. o. The supplier of margarine owns a certificate of quality and food safety by IFS food, it is subject to audits by the firm Marlenka international, s. r. o., and each supply of this ingredient is carefully checked at receipt.

Why we use palm oil

    When choosing margarine, its quality and taste and not its price were primarily decisive for us. Its main components include palm oil, coconut oil and rapeseed oil. With regard to the ever-increasing pressure to reduce the use of palm oil, our quality department carried out an audit at the supplier of margarine. The supplier owns an RSPO certificate indicating palm oil which comes from sustainable sources and meets strict criteria for environmental protection.
Palm oil is used because of its favourable technological properties. It is a fat which is naturally solid and does not need to be artificially hardened by hydrogenation. It contributes to the desired properties of our cream, enhancing its delicious taste, and it does not contain any preservatives or artificial colours. It is rich in vitamin E, it does not contain any cholesterol, lactose or trans fatty acids formed during the process of hydrogenation.
Hydrogenation is a chemical reaction during which saturated fats, and in some cases trans fats, are formed from unsaturated fats.

Health benefits:    
•    It does not contain cholesterol
•    It does not contain lactose
•    It is rich in vitamin E
•    It does not contain trans fatty acids formed by hydrogenation

The proportion of palm oil in our products is ca. 9%. Our supplier of margarine often uses palm oil as a basis to produce its fats. We have demanded substitution of palm oil at our supplier. We have been offered shea or cocoa butter. However, their extraction entails significant environmental problems and is economically more demanding.
Our products do not contain any preservatives or artificial colours; we lay great emphasis on the quality of the ingredients used. In our production, we do not use butter (whose recommended consumption is max. 50 g/day). We make confectionery products consumed by consumers in a limited amount because of their flavoursome characteristics and they cannot replace a naturally varied diet.
