Product Description

Nutiva USDA Certified Organic, non-GMO, Fair for Life Red Palm and Coconut Shortening is a versatile and nutrient-dense culinary ingredient, perfect for including in your kitchen. This shortening is vegan and contains no soy or canola. It is non-hydrogenated, trans-fat free, and has a rich golden color indicating the presence of antioxidant vitamins A & E naturally found in red palm oil. Unlike other shortening products on the market, Nutiva’s Shortening contains Fair for Life Certified red palm oil, sustainably grown on small farms that have been worked by the same families for several generations. This socially aware and ethical approach to farming assures that Nutiva's red palm kernals are orangutan friendly and do not contribute to rain forest deforestation or habitat destruction. Nutiva processes these responsibly grown and sustainably harvested superfoods using a proprietary cold-filtration process, never hexane or other dangerous chemicals, to remove any strong flavor while retaining the nutrients. This coconut/red palm blend is excellent for baked goods such as flaky pie crusts, wholesome biscuits and tasty cookies that call for a neutral-flavored, dairy-free shortening. No wonder these ancient superfoods are still recognized as a healthful addition to vegetarian, vegan, whole food, paleo, ketogenic, and gluten-free diets. Nutiva was founded in 1999 with a single purpose in mind - to Revolutionize the Way the World Eats. Our role is to produce and promote organic, nutrient dense superfoods that are good for you and good for the planet. Social and environmental responsibility is a core part of Nutiva’s culture and business. From sourcing organic products, to obtaining fair trade certification, to greening our facilities and operations, to funding tree planting at schools in our local community, we are constantly seeking ways to better protect our environment and ensure a better quality of life for employees, customers, and the communities we serve.
