The blanket statement that "healthier alternatives can be used that would not affect taste or cost of food" is patently false. The alternatives are not cheaper, often have off-flavors, specifically coconut ("sun-tan lotion"), the melting points are insufficient to match textural function, and the shelf-life periods are greatly diminished. There is also the politically correct quagmire which comes into the mix with RSPO certification and supply verification of the coconut and palm derived fats used to replace traditional shortenings derive from hydrogenation of soy and cottonseed oils. The U.S.'s FDA de-listed PHO's from the Federal Register as a GRAS food substance using poor and flawed, subjective data. Now, the even bigger and more politically masterminds at WHO want to push the agenda to a worldwide scale. End Game: The quality of foodstuffs goes down and the costs go up; same as it ever was.
