    Gravy granules without palm oil as an ingredient. Impossible to buy? 14th May 19 at 7:15 PM
    I currently enjoy the chicken granules from Bisto (in the orange tub) but looked at the ingredients and saw palm oil was an ingredient. Having learned about the damage that palm oil production can cause to habitat for rare species, I would like to choose other gravy granules without palm oil as an ingredient. However, are there any products like this available? If there are, they are difficult to find in the supermarkets.

    This is the only one I know of, and it is junky and not at all cheap, unfortunately.

    Everything nowadays seem to have palm oil as part of the ingredient.
    What is extremely said is that man is destroying beautiful forests to plant palm trees.

    I always make my own gravy from scratch. Tastes a lot better than any Bisto muck.

    I also agree to @unforeseen.
    Making your gravy from scratch will be way healthier cause you know what you are putting in there than buying a granule one. It's not that hard to make one especially nowadays that you can search through internet how to do it.

    As for the op, gravy granules are only basically stock and thickeners, just as quick and easy to make your own, and it'll taste better
