OUR RED PALM PRODUCTS —

redpalm-unrefinedUnrefined 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.

 

spreadNEW! 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.

shorteningNEW! 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.

med-heatNEW! 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.

  1. LaWand Burton says:

    Will you be carry the new product in you online store?

    • Hi LaWand Burton – Thanks for your question. We will be offering some of our new red palm products in our online store soon. These products include Shortening, and Sunflower Red Palm Blend. However, the Buttery Spread will be available only in stores, as this item needs to be refrigerated. Right now, the products are available at Whole Foods Markets, and will be coming soon to other stores and our online store.

  2. Dianna C says:

    Do you if this will be carried in the Whole Foods in Louisville, KY? I went there this weekend and as of now, they are not carrying it. Will the Shortening be available online? I would really like to try it.

    • The Nutiva Team says:

      Hi Dianna,
      We’re not sure if your local store will be carrying it, though we can find out for you. The best bet is always to let them know when there’s a new product that you want to see on their shelves.

      In the meantime, YES! We’re selling our Shortening online. It’s available now on our store: https://store.nutiva.com/shortening/

      Cheers, and thanks a lot for reaching out.

  3. Theresa Picoriello says:

    Hi, I have been a long time customer, I love your products! I am interested in this red palm-sunflower blend. however I am concerned about the sunflower oil. you do not state how it is refined. and I try to stay away from refined products. doesn’t that usually mean they take out the good benefits to make a product look pure, pretty etc.? also doesn’t sunflower oil contribute to inflammation in the body? I know what your company stands for and that is also why I have been a customer for years. I would like to know more about this refined sunflower oil. Thank-you.

    • The Nutiva Team says:

      Hi Theresa, Thanks for your question. We created the Sunflower & Red Palm oil blend so that people could have a pourable, easy to use source of the nutrient benefits of red palm. Our original product, the Unrefined Red Palm Oil has the highest amounts of antioxidant vitamins A & E. Like most sunflower oil, the sunflower oil in the Sunflower & Red Palm blend is refined. If you want to avoid refined products, we suggest you stick with the unrefined red palm oil. Sunflower oil does have the benefits of vitamin E, omega 6 and omega 9. As to whether it contributes to inflammation in the body, each individual has different nutritional needs in order to maintain health and balance, so we suggest you consult your health care provider to make the choice most appropriate for you.

  4. Mario Montes says:

    No luck on finding any of your products on the shelves at Whole Foods Market in Sherman Oaks East. ..(San Fernando Valley, Southern California). Hoping you can find a market for me in the greater Los Angeles area so I can fill my shelves at home with your wonderful products…Thank you :)

    • The Nutiva Team says:

      Hi Mario – Thanks for looking! As these products are new, they might still be rolling out in some stores. The best thing to do is request it at your local Whole Foods or order from our online store. It will be arriving at other stores soon. Thanks for your patience. Stay tuned!

  5. Can you please tell me the difference between the Buttery Spread, and the Shortening? The ingredients that you listed are exactly the same, and I was wondering how they are different from each other.
    Thanks

    • The Nutiva Team says:

      Hi Kitty,
      Thanks for your question. The main difference between the Shortening and Buttery Spread is the flavor. The Shortening has a neutral flavor, that makes it great for baking and frying. The Buttery Spread has a delicious buttery flavor. We suggest using it on toast, veggies or rice. The primary ingredients of coconut oil and red palm oil are the same in both products, but you can view the complete list of ingredients on the nutritional panels here: https://store.nutiva.com/shortening/ and https://store.nutiva.com/buttery-spread/. Have a great day!

      • The word ingredients does not appear on the buttery spread page. How about posting an image of the label with the nutritional facts?

  6. Amy Martinez says:

    Is the new shortening good for making buttercream frosting?

  7. I really appreciate there being another option for dairy free butter out there, especially one with less PUFAs than earth balance (are the 2 per seving in your product really necessary??). I saw the buttery spread on my last trip to Whole Foods and was intrigued, but among the many claims on the label, you never address whether or not it contains or may be cross contaminated with gluten, and you website is equally mute on that point. Pretty big omission given the number of people who eliminate gluten and dairy together, as well as how very important even cross contamination can be to those who are allergic or Celiacs.

  8. Borislav Tinkov says:

    Hello,
    Is the Nutiva Red Palm Oil made from Natural Habitats Organic RBD(REFINED, BLEACHED and DEODORIZED) palm oil, which means that your product is REFINED ?

    • The Nutiva Team says:

      Hello Borislav,

      Red Palm Oil is Unrefined. Here’s the process: https://store.nutiva.com/red-palm-oil/

      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.

  9. Phil Lang says:

    I have a jar of Nutiva Red Palm Oil.
    Can I use this in bread making to replace butter and or oils?

    • The Nutiva Team says:

      Hi Phil, red palm oil is an excellent substitute for butter or oil and can be used in bread making or baking. Let us know how it goes!

  10. Insanely amazing and lightning fast customer service. Do not hesitate to order from NUTIVA.COM !!

  11. Jennifer says:

    So, does you post about man that the buttery spread is gluten free? I’m not a Celiac but I am avoiding gluten due to autoimmune disease. Does the buttery spread include any gluten ingredients? Thanks!!!

    • Madalyn Crum says:

      Hi Jennifer. Our products are naturally non-gluten, however they are not all certified gluten-free. At present, our chia seed and coconut flour and certified gluten-free and we are actively pursuing gluten-free certification for our other products, in response to requests from our customers. Thanks!

  12. I have been asked to make a 65th anniversary cake for the parents of a friend. I would like to keep the sugar content as low as possible. I have been making decorated cakes for many years. Can I make buttercream frosting with Nutiva Coconut sugar? If yes, how would it effect the color of the frosting? Thank you!

    • The Nutiva Team says:

      Hi Betty! You can definitely replace cane sugar with coconut sugar for the buttercream frosting. Coconut sugar is a similar color to brown sugar, so your frosting will most likely take on a darker, caramel-y color. Good luck with your cake!

  13. The shortening says it is good for frying, yet is made of virgin coconut oil and red palm oil, relatively low smoke points. What is the smoke point for this product? And where does this rank on your “shelf life chart” Thanks!

    • The Nutiva Team says:

      Hi AJ. The smoke point for shortening is 400 degrees and you should use the shortening before the “best by” date printed on the package. Thanks!
