Nutiva Organic Red Palm Oil - 15 oz. (444mL)

Nutiva - Organic Red Palm Oil has a mild carrot-like flavor, with a rich, buttery texture. Some red palm oils have a strong or harsh flavor, however, our proprietary cold-filtration process removes any strong flavor while retaining the nutrients. Organic Red Palm Oil is ideal for soups, sauces and sautéing. It also turns regular popcorn into delicious (and healthy!) movie theater-style popcorn.

Palm oil grown in Southeast Asia is associated with destruction of rainforest and orangutan habitat. It is important to note that in addition to the work we do with Natural Habitats, orangutans do not live in Ecuador and our red palm does not contribute to deforestation or habitat destruction.

Organic and Sustainable
While Red Palm Oil grown in SE Asia often contributes to rainforest and orangutan habitat destruction, Nutiva’s Organic Red Palm Oil does not. In fact, orangutans don’t live in Ecuador, which is located in South America. In addition, most palm oil is non-organic, which results in farmers spraying Roundup or other harsh herbicides at the base of each tree twice a year. Organic growing practices avoid introducing these toxins into the environment. The region of Ecuador where Nutiva’s Red Palm Oil is grown has numerous small family farms, averaging 10 hectares (about 25 acres), interspersed throughout the regional forests. These subsistence farms were planted many years ago and are now being worked by second and third generation farming families. As an organic farm, they have a very healthy environment for animal and plant life that blends with the surrounding forest.

Quality
Their extraction processes guarantee the highest quality, most flavorful product. To extract the oil fresh-harvested organic palm fruit bunches are steamed to release the oil from the fruit then expeller-pressed to further separate the oil. All palm oil is extracted this way; there is no 100 percent raw red palm oil. Until recently, red palm oil had few users due to its powerful odor and flavor. Nutiva uses a proprietary cold-filtering process that maintains the beneficial nutritional qualities while removing most of the strong scent and flavor. The end result is a delicious buttery oil, rich in antioxidants and with a mild carroty flavor.


Nutrition
For over 5,000 years this plant-based fat has been a staple of indigenous cultures. Legend has it that this sacred food was revered for its healthful properties and entombed with the pharaohs of ancient Egypt for their enjoyment in the afterlife. This long-standing reputation comes from Red Palm Oil’s nutrient dense properties. Red palm oil contains the highest amounts of vitamins A and E of any plant-based oil. Its dark red color comes from carotenes, such as alpha-carotene and beta-carotene (vitamin A) nutrients that provide color to fruits and vegetables such as carrots and tomatoes. Red palm also contains at least ten other carotenes, including the antioxidants, tocopherols and tocotrienols (vitamin E).

Uses
Red palm oil adds a delicious, buttery flavor and warm yellow color to a variety of dishes. Use in rice, quinoa, muffins, smoothies, spreads, sauces, soups, stews, fish dishes, guacamole, popcorn and medium-heat sautéing. It can also be blended with other oils, such as olive or coconut for baking. For an easy way to add antioxidant-rich fats to your dinner, brush your favorite vegetables with Nutiva Red Palm Oil before or after broiling. Sprinkle with seasoning to taste.

Nutiva Questions & Answers

What is the difference between Palm Oil and Coconut Oil? Are they both from the Coconut Tree?
Both Palm and Coconut come from the palm tree family, but they are different species. While both are considered tropical oils, the fat and nutritional profile of each differs; palm fruit oil (not to be confused with palm kernel oil), is approximately 45% saturated fat with a high percentage of monounsaturated fat and coconut oil is approximately 90% saturated fat.

Why is Red Palm Oil good for me?
Red palm oil contains the highest amounts of vitamins A and E of any plant-based oil. Its dark red color comes from carotenes, such as alpha-carotene and beta-carotene (vitamin A) nutrients that provide color to fruits and vegetables such as carrots and tomatoes. Red palm also contains at least ten other caotenes, including the antioxidants, tocopherols and tocotrienols (vitamin E).

What is the difference between Palm Oil and Palm Kernel Oil?
While both oils come from the Palm tree, they have very different properties and should not be confused with each other. Palm Oil, line Nutiva's Organic Red Palm Oil, comes from the red, fleshy fruit of the palm tree and contains high levels of Vitamins A and E. Palm Oil comes from the kernel of the palm tree and does not contain these healthy antioxidants.

What can I use Red Palm Oil for?
Red Palm oil makes an excellent cooking oil for baking, sauteing, dips and medium heat frying. In particular it's delicious tossed with popcorn or in stews and sauces. All tropical oils, including red palm, are excellent cooking oils. The fatty acids in palm oils are very stable and are excellent for medium heat cooking temperatures. Tropical oils have also been traditionally used for body care, from massage to soaps and cosmetics.

What is the smoke point of Red Palm Oil?
302° F

How do you store Red Palm Oil?
It is best stored in a cool, low light location. Refrigeration is not necessary, but will extend the shelf life.

Does Red Palm Oil contain any gluten?
No, red palm oil does not contain gluten.

Will Red Palm Oil stain my skin?
If applied directly to the skin, it will add a reddish orange color, but will wash off with soap and water.

I am sure this is a high quality healthy product but was really thrown by the flavor, I am surprised how many people compare it to butter and coconut oil! To me it tastes like old carrots mixed with beeswax. The texture is creamy and the color is a beautiful shade of dark orange but it''s not a product I would purchase again based on the taste. I''m not even sure how I''ll use up this jar unless I find a way to cover up the taste.

Solid oil at room temperature that melts when heated. Grittier and filmier than I expected but delicious. Great for popcorn (although I didn't really think it was a butter substitute so much as an oil replacement for a stir popper). Not really a buttery taste, but savory and rich - somehow kind of creamy too. Leaves a lot or residue on fingers and lips, but it's worth it!

I RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT!
