Supermarket Guru declares Nutiva Red Palm Oil a Hit

As big admirers of Phil Lempert, also known as the Supermarket Guru, we were delighted to see one of our products featured as a New Product Hit. Nutiva’s Organic Red Palm Oil was the “Hit of the Week” and earned a score of 95! Here’s what Phil has to say: “I bet you’ve never seen this before! The reddish-orange color is natural to the oil, no colors added here, and there are no ingredients besides organic red palm oil. Like all fats, one tablespoon is 14 grams of fat. Red palm oil is nutrient dense, with betacarotene and vitamins A and E. The texture is like a whipped butter and actually it tastes closer to butter than it does to oil. The best use is in sauces and medium heat sautéing, but they do have more recommendations on the label as well.”

Thanks for the great review, Phil! Our red palm oil is organic, fair trade, sustainable, responsibly-sourced, habitat friendly and delicious. Use it in sauces, spreads, dressings, and for medium heat sautéing. Find delicious recipes in the Nutiva Kitchen.

      Hi Ed – You would like to substitute the Organic Red Palm Oil for lard or butter? If this is correct, you should be able to replace it 1-for-1. However, keep in mind that the red palm should not be used in extremely high temperature recipes. Hope this helps. Enjoy the red palm oil!
