Why You’ll Love It

Nutiva® organic and vegan shortening is a creamy blend of red palm and coconut oils. It’s a versatile, neutral-flavored, dairy-free solution for treats like piecrusts, biscuits and cookies. The palm oil is ideal for creating flaky baked goods, while the coconut oil provides the added health benefits of lauric acid. This shortening is vegan and contains no dairy, soy or canola. It is organic, non-GMO and Fair Trade certified. The golden color reveals the presence of antioxidant vitamins A and E naturally found in red palm oil. All Nutiva® red palm oil is sourced from small, organic family farms in partnership with Natural Habitats™. Their palm oil does not contribute to deforestation or habitat destruction.

Love this!

I use this for baking and frying and love the results I get with both! I'm on my second container and will continue to use.

I try to cook low carb as much as possible and usually use butter for the blueberry crumble I make. I can't believe the difference when using Nutiva! It makes the crumble part so flaky and buttery tasting, unlike before! It makes it taste so decadent, instead of like cardboard. I am so glad i happened upon this product! Will use it for life!

This stuff makes making a crust a breeze! I highly recommend it!!

- Laura

Awesome product.

Baking with this is great. Every bit as good as the bad fats we usually use. Try it. You won't be disappointed.

- Teresa

Good shortening

Nutiva is a superior brand by far. This is a good shortening for just about any use involving a fat.

- Jessica

Fantastic for my pie crusts

I have only used this for my homemade flaky organic pie crusts. I don't have much experience with other shortenings, but this worked great, and I feel good about the ingredients.

- Erin

Great product.

Bought this for my gluten and grain free chocolate chip cookies. Worked great!

- Susan


I prefer using this to what I was using.

- Tangela

excellent product

and ethically sourced- worth the price

- Alexandria

Great for pies

My family noticed the difference right away. Makes great pie crust!

- Amy

Great product

This shortening works great for frying jobs, just like any other I've used, except I don't feel guilty about using it! Great price too. Will definitely purchase again.

- Stephanie

Great for baking

I use this instead of butter in baked goods and it works perfectly. The flavor is not too strong and I love that it is a healthier option!

- Mandy

Perfect for frying!

Since I am no longer using canola oil for ANYTHING, or the other white hydrogenated vegetable shortening, I was hoping for a good substitute. I love my coconut oil for so many things, but was hoping to find something with a more neutral flavor for frying chicken. The Organic Vegan Superfood Shortening is the answer! It is healthy, you don't have to use a lot of it to have a good pan of fried chicken, and it made FANTASTIC gravy!!! I will definitely be buying this again.

Organic coconut shortening superfood

I have not purchased the shortening yet. But I have tried it. Nutiva has the equilivent of a gold mine for your body. My friend gave me some to try. She has bad intestinal problems. After switching to the Nutiva shortening, coconut oil, and palm oil her life is changed. So once it was in my hot little hands....I used these products for cooking, flavoring, oil pulling,chap stick, conditioning nails and scalp, facial cream, butter substitute. Your body will thank you for making the change! And you will be able to cut out alot of your pricey skin creams, nasty toothpaste, many more items. It truly is a SUPERFOOD for your body. My friend no longer has the intestinal problems and told the Dr. Of her experience. No more meds for intestines. You will not find a better brand than Nutiva. Thrive market has such great prices that can't be beat. They even send it wrapped so pretty that you feel like you are opening a gift! I want to try the manna and hemp oil. She says I will be sold! I already am!

- Donna Barnes

THIS one is the BEST!

I became aware of the founder of Nutiva via some excellent health videos in which he was interviewed. What a fine, noble, CONSCIOUS being he is! Anyway, I was using Spectrum as well and noticed the ingredients on this product are healthier/better. We have re-ordered several times and are very satisfied. I just wish Thrive carried Nutiva Buttery Spread as I am interested in trying it as well.

Adds rich, buttery flavor to baking

I have used this in my baking recipes as a substitute for shortening and really like the results. Gives my baking recipes a nice, rich, buttery flavor. I would definately reccommend this as a healthier alternative to Crisco Shortening. This even taste better than Crisco butter flavored shortening. I will never buy shortening again. From now on I will just use this instead. This is definately a baker's best freind and a must have for holiday baking.

Nutiva Shortening"124124124"

I was previously a user of Spectrum Organic Shortening. However, after trying the Nutiva brand, I'm sold on it. It makes the yummiest breads, pizza dough every time. Thank you Nutiva for great nutritious items and Thrive Market for making this available for us.

- Cynthia

Good product!

I like this for baking it's pretty great! Something to try I think!

- Justine

Save the rainforest

Buy this and throw out that other crap, you know what I'm talking about, and you'll be healthier and doing the planet a service.

- Shinael

Best Shortening EVER

I bought this because I hate using conventional shortening to make my sweet breads and decided to give this a try. It made the BEST zucchini bread I have ever made. It held together very well even though I used 100% oat flour instead of wheat flour. I have already purchased this twice and will definitely purchase it again!
