baking with nutiva organic shortening
Baking with Nutiva Organic Shortening means choosing a better option for all your baking adventures.
Standard shortening is made of less than desirable ingredients, like soy, canola, corn or palm kernel oil. (Palm kernel is the highly- processed, nutrient-void oil derived from the seed, whereas red palm oil comes from the fruit and is nutrient-rich). Often, regular shortening is even hydrogenated; an unnatural process that results in the dreaded trans fats.
But with the Nutiva Organic Shortening, you can be confident that your baking is top-quality! Our shortening consists of an organic blend of virgin coconut and red palm oils. Coconut oil provides the health benefits of lauric acid, while the golden color reveals the presence of antioxidant vitamins A & E, naturally found in red palm oil. The red palm oil is sourced from small, organic family farms in partnership with Natural Habitats™. It does not contribute to deforestation or habitat destruction. (Learn more about Palm Done Right.)
In addition to being vegan and free of dairy, soy, and canola, it is organic, Non-GMO and Fair Trade certified.
It is the best choice for baked goods such as pie crusts, biscuits, and cookies that call for a neutral-flavored, dairy-free shortening.
