MarasFire Does Jaina know Jag was put in charge of the Hapan fleet? *dodges quick* No blasters! SilSolo It has to do with antioxidants. In hot regions, there's more heat and light, and therefore more oxidation (spoilage). Antioxidants, such as capsaicin, allicin, and lauric acid fix this. The flip side is that oils from the palm family are also more saturated, because saturated fats resist oxidation better than unsaturated ones. (Over 90% of the oil in coconut is saturated.) Anyway, I like Tenel Ka because she's very matter-of-fact about things. It had to be tough to give her daughter away to the Solos because she knows that being Hapan royalty is a dangerous lifestyle.
