Essential Depot has always been palm based. At least for the last 6 months, as I researched it carefully when I started diy. They didn't used to state it on the label though, I had to go to I think it was faq section before to obtain the info. However, this last couple weeks they added soy derived vg, so they changed their label, I'm assuming to keep from mixing it up. They sell the new soy vg for as low as 6.97 per gallon, but I won't switch to it. Based on my research when I started diy, my understanding is that palm is the sweetest and best. That's just what I've read on multiple articles, forums, and vendors. Who knows where they got there info from though???
