Dunkin’ Donuts cleans up its palm-oil act

Grist.org - Tue, 09/16/2014 - 19:16

If you were looking for an excuse to stop and get a cruller at Dunkin’, here you go: Dunkin’ Donuts just committed to buy all its palm oil from sources that do not cut down the rainforest.

In case you didn’t know: Doughnuts have been fried in palm oil ever since the public health push to get rid of transfats. The demand for palm oil has driven farmers to clear forests, threatening many species, including orangutans. Cutting down these forests also has major long-term consequences for humans. So if you’re getting doughnuts from Tim Hortons or Krispy Kreme, you have yet another reason (besides the 190 reasons here) to feel guilty.

There is a way to do palm oil right. Back in July Cargill pledged to provide palm oil that did not cause deforestation, and yesterday it announced it was joining The Forest Trust. That gives doughnut companies the opportunity to get the oil they need without encouraging irresponsible destruction.

“More and more consumers, investors, and suppliers around the world have shown that zero deforestation palm oil is possible – and in fact, more and more it is what consumers and investors expect,” Forest Heroes, a group that has been pressuring companies to abandon deforestation-dependent oil, said in a press release.

Some 60 percent of palm oil is now produced responsibly. We are close to the tipping point where palm oil will stop being a synonym for “evil” and become an exemplar of a well-managed commodity.

A podcast for those who like food for their brain

Grist.org - Tue, 09/16/2014 - 16:41

I like cooking, and I love eating. But intellectually I’m drawn to food because of the way it bridges human culture and the natural environment.

There’s a new podcast that talks about food in just that way. It’s called Gastropod. It’s the work of Cynthia Graber and Nicola Twilley, two food journalists who met while participating in the 11th Hour Food and Farming Journalism Fellowship at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism.

“We’re both passionate about understanding food and agriculture through the lens of science and history,” Graber said. “We’re trying to ask, what’s scaleable, what’s sustainable, what’s scientifically reasonable?”

The first episode is all about utensils, and how cutlery changes the way we eat. And Graber promises they have already begun producing podcasts that dive into the meaty issues surrounding food and the environment. You can find it here, or follow @Gastropodcast on Twitter.
