OUR RED PALM PRODUCTS —

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.

 

HOW IT’S MADE —

• 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.

    I want to make a traditional, not a gluten free, pie crust. Do I just substitute the Nutiva shortening on a 1:1 ratio using my traditional recipes?

    1. Nutiva Team Nutiva says:

      Hi, Loretta! You are substituting the shortening for what product? Thanks!
