Organic Red Palm Oil
Organic Red Palm Oil
Our Organic Red Palm Oil is a delicious buttery oil colored red by the highest Vitamin A & E levels of any plant based oil. Our special filtration process eliminates harsh flavors found in unfiltered palm oils, leaving a premium culinary oil ideal for soups, sauces and sauteing.
No refrigeration required. Solid at cooler temperatures. Specks and variations in color and consistency occur naturally in Nutiva Organic Red Palm Oil. The deep color can stain some utensils.
Do Not Microwave
Palm Oil Done Properly
Our Organic Red Palm Oil has a rich, buttery texture and flavor. Some red palm oils have a strong or harsh flavor, however, our proprietary cold-filtration process removes any strong flavor while retaining the nutrients. The rich orange color of red palm oil reveals the presence of antioxidant Vitamins A and E, in the forms of beta-carotene and rare tocotrienols and tocopherols of the Vitamin E family. These nutrients provide color to vegetables and fruits such as carrots and tomatoes.
We source our red palm oil from small organic and fair trade certified family farms in Ecuador to ensure no habitat is harmed. Through a partnership with Natural Habitats, we support local environmental and community efforts with Palm Done Right.
frequently asked questions
Isn’t palm oil considered bad for the environment and animals?
