Recently, PepsiCo India announced their plans to remove palm oil from its Lay's chips! That's because palm oil can increase the risk of heart disease, cause weight gain, etc. You can read the full article here.

Palm oil isn't just found in chips but also in many other packaged items like biscuits, cookies, bread, noodles, etc.
