”as well As a soya drink, an alternative to milk, this product is an alternative to the heavy cream. The content of the particular soya beans, however, is very small, a mere 2 percent, far less than the 8 per cent who are of the same manufacturer, soya drink. The place consists of up to 25% of the product of the palm oil industry,” it says in the explanatory memorandum.
According to Bjorn Bernhardson is the palm oil not the product of signs on its packaging. However, it is likely to have just the ingredient for which it has received a lot of votes.

It would then be possible to stop the use of palm oil, it may have an impact on forests and local communities.
the Company is promising now to evaluate both the content and the communication of the package.
