Living Without's Favorites: Seeing Red
Nutiva offers two new dairy-free replacements for butter and conventional shortening that contain unrefined red palm oil. Produced from the fleshy fruit of the palm tree, red palm oil is naturally more nutritious (higher levels of antioxidant vitamins A and E) than palm kernel oil. Nutiva’s Buttery Spread, a blend of red palm oil and virgin coconut oil, delivers a buttery flavor and can be used in any way you’d enjoy butter. Nutiva’s Shortening, also made with red palm oil and virgin coconut oil, has a neutral taste that’s ideal for flaky pie crusts and crispy cookies. These wholesome products are gluten-free, organic, vegan, non-GMO with no soy, dairy or trans-fat.
