Organic Vegan Shortening692752105173Nutiva® 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.15 fl oz tub
GREAT PRODUCT! - by QUEENWorks well preparing many
Works great! - by Ashleigh SchneiderI was trying to buy some shortening but I did not realize that every single shortening was made with soy. I'm so glad that Thrive saved the day. I was finally able to make my omas cookie recipe and they came out fantastic.
No orangutans died... - by CathySomeone claimed this isn't vegan because "millions of orangutans" died for the palm oil. No, Nutiva gets its palm oil from small sustainably harvesting farmers in Ecuador, where there have never been any orangutans. Many companies do this now, just look for sustainably harvested or other info on labels or ask them.
perfect in place of veg. shortening - by Chaunceyandlorettaworks great good flavor.
