I think it does, actually. Unless they have changed recently.

There are a few palm oil free ones, hopefully someone can tell you their names as I cannot remember them.

Nuttelex has palm oil, from sustainable sources at least

I just checked my nuttelex & it says it doesn't....

Question to everyone : what's wrong with palm oil if it's from a sustainable source? Not being snooty, just literally haven't educated myself that much about it!

Some people do not trust the board that grants a companies palm oil use as "sustainable". They think that companies are claiming that they use sustainable palm oil when really they're getting it from unsustainable sources. I'm not sure how much evidence (or if there is any evidence) to suggest this is true.

Personally I will avoid palm oil as much as possible if it is from an unsustainable source, though I'm 100% fine with buying sustainable palm oil.
In my opinion there are many products that can be just as bad (if not worse) for the environment than palm oil which people don't seem to think twice about.

To answer the original posters question: Melrose is palm oil free and can be bought from most health food stores for around $5 a tub.

Hi. I sent an email nuttelex a few weeks ago regarding palm oil. They said it contains 6% palm oil from sustainable sources. Hope this helps happy

Okay so i read this post yesterday and i have now triple checked the Nuttelex i have been eating and zilch, zero no palm oil so are we all shopping at different supermarkets?  Or does it hide itself as another ingredient?
