Why does Justin's use palm fruit oil? Is it sustainably sourced?

The reason we use palm oil is because it is a non-hydrogenated oil that helps dramatically reduce oil separation when added in small amounts to our nut butters and peanut butter cups. Adding liquid oils, like almond or hazelnut, would not stabilize the nut butters and would increase the oil layer at the top of the jar. 
Justin’s organic peanut butter cups are made with 100% organic palm oil that is sustainably sourced from South America and is RSPO certified. Our nut butter jars, squeeze packs and snack packs also contain palm oil that is certified sustainable under the mass balance supply chain model by the RSPO.
