NEW! • Organic Sunflower and Red Palm Oil Blend
Sunflower and Red Palm Oil Blend - Medium Heat
Our Sunflower & Red Palm Oil Blend is versatile, delicious and easy to use. Red palm oil provides antioxidant vitamins A & E with tocopherols/tocotrienols from vitamin E and beta-carotene from vitamin A. Sunflower oil contributes to the higher smoke point of 350° F making it perfect for medium heat cooking.
With a light buttery flavor, this versatile oil is ideal for sautéing and simmering. It's especially delicious with grains like rice, millet and quinoa. Contains no soy or canola oils and is vegan. It is organic, non-GMO and Fair Trade certified. The vibrant red color reveals the presence of antioxidant vitamins A & E naturally found in red palm oil. Just 1 tablespoon provides 32% daily value of Vitamin A and 10% daily value of Vitamin E. A natural separation process makes the red palm oil liquid, with the bonus of increasing monounsaturated fats (omega-9s).
All Nutiva red palm oil is sourced from small, organic family farms in partnership with Natural Habitats ™. Our palm oil does not contribute to deforestation or habitat destruction. To learn more about our sustainable, responsibly-sourced, red palm oil, go HERE.
