Introducing New Red Palm Products

We’re excited to announce the launch of our new line of red palm oil products

Buttery Spread • Shortening • Sunflower Red Palm Blend – Medium Heat Oil

These new items make it easy to incorporate the health and flavor benefits of red palm into your diet. They are available now at Whole Foods and will be coming soon to other stores.

Red palm oil is naturally nutritious with high levels of antioxidant vitamins A & E. Unlike other palm oils, Nutiva red palm oil does not contribute to deforestation or habitat destruction; it is organic, fair trade certified, sustainable, responsibly-sourced, and habitat-safe.

All our red palm products are:
Organic • Vegan • Non-GMO • Dairy Free • Soy Free • Canola Free • Trans Fat Free


Unrefined Red Palm Oil – Our original red palm oil is organic and unrefined. It has a mild carrot-like flavor, with a rich, buttery texture. It is solid at room temperature and liquid at 97° F. It’s ideal for soups, sauces and sautéing. It also turns regular popcorn into delicious (and healthy!) movie theater-style popcorn.


NEW! Buttery Spread – This blend of unrefined red palm oil and virgin coconut oil has a delicious buttery flavor and contains no dairy, soy or canola. Spread it on bread, vegetables or rice or use as a 1:1 butter replacement for baking. The vibrant yellow color comes from the antioxidant vitamins A & E naturally found in red palm oil. Virgin coconut oil offers the added health benefit of lauric acid.


NEW! Shortening – This blend of red palm oil and virgin coconut oil has a neutral flavor that is perfect for flaky pie crusts and crispy cookies. The red palm oil guarantees excellent baking results while coconut oil provides the added health benefit of lauric acid. It is solid at room temperature and liquid at 97° F. Unlike other shortenings, Nutiva Shortening contains no trans fats. The vibrant yellow color comes from antioxidant vitamins A & E naturally found in red palm oil.


NEW! Sunflower Red Palm Medium Heat Oil – This blend of sunflower oil and unrefined red palm oil is a versatile, buttery flavored, medium heat cooking oil. The vibrant red color reveals the presence of antioxidant vitamins A & E from the red palm fruit. It is liquid at room temperature. It contains good-for-you monounsaturated fats (omega-9s) and is delicious in salad dressings, sautés, drizzled on popcorn or simply mixed with rice.



• Unrefined Red Palm Oil – Fresh harvested organic palm fruit bunches are first gently steamed (at temperatures up 180° F) to release the oil from the fruit and then expeller-pressed to fully extract the oil. We then use a proprietary cold-filtering process that maintains the beneficial nutritional qualities while removing the strong scent and flavor. All palm fruit oil requires steaming to be extracted; because of this there is no 100 percent raw red palm oil. Some brands of red palm oil have a harsh flavor and strong odor. Our proprietary cold-filtering process distinguishes our red palm oil. The result is an unrefined, organic, delicious, buttery flavored oil, high in antioxidant vitamins A & E.

• Buttery Spread – Nutiva Buttery Spread is a blend of organic virgin coconut oil and organic, fair trade certified red palm oil.

• Shortening – Nutiva Shortening is a blend of organic virgin coconut oil and organic, fair trade certified red palm oil.

• Sunflower Red Palm Blend – Medium Heat Oil – Nutiva Medium Heat Oil is a blend of organic, expeller-pressed, refined sunflower oil and organic, fair trade certified red palm oil.

    1. Nutiva says:

      Hi LaWand Burton – Thanks for your question. We will be offering some of our new red palm products in our online store soon. These products include Shortening, and Sunflower Red Palm Blend. However, the Buttery Spread will be available only in stores, as this item needs to be refrigerated. Right now, the products are available at Whole Foods Markets, and will be coming soon to other stores and our online store.

    Do you if this will be carried in the Whole Foods in Louisville, KY? I went there this weekend and as of now, they are not carrying it. Will the Shortening be available online? I would really like to try it.

    1. The Nutiva Team says:

      Hi Dianna,
      We’re not sure if your local store will be carrying it, though we can find out for you. The best bet is always to let them know when there’s a new product that you want to see on their shelves.
      In the meantime, YES! We’re selling our Shortening online. It’s available now on our store:
      Cheers, and thanks a lot for reaching out.

    Hi, I have been a long time customer, I love your products! I am interested in this red palm-sunflower blend. however I am concerned about the sunflower oil. you do not state how it is refined. and I try to stay away from refined products. doesn’t that usually mean they take out the good benefits to make a product look pure, pretty etc.? also doesn’t sunflower oil contribute to inflammation in the body? I know what your company stands for and that is also why I have been a customer for years. I would like to know more about this refined sunflower oil. Thank-you.

    1. The Nutiva Team says:

      Hi Theresa, Thanks for your question. We created the Sunflower & Red Palm oil blend so that people could have a pourable, easy to use source of the nutrient benefits of red palm. Our original product, the Unrefined Red Palm Oil has the highest amounts of antioxidant vitamins A & E. Like most sunflower oil, the sunflower oil in the Sunflower & Red Palm blend is refined. If you want to avoid refined products, we suggest you stick with the unrefined red palm oil. Sunflower oil does have the benefits of vitamin E, omega 6 and omega 9. As to whether it contributes to inflammation in the body, each individual has different nutritional needs in order to maintain health and balance, so we suggest you consult your health care provider to make the choice most appropriate for you.

    No luck on finding any of your products on the shelves at Whole Foods Market in Sherman Oaks East. ..(San Fernando Valley, Southern California). Hoping you can find a market for me in the greater Los Angeles area so I can fill my shelves at home with your wonderful products…Thank you 🙂

    1. The Nutiva Team says:

      Hi Mario – Thanks for looking! As these products are new, they might still be rolling out in some stores. The best thing to do is request it at your local Whole Foods or order from our online store. It will be arriving at other stores soon. Thanks for your patience. Stay tuned!
