Palm Oil Done Properly
Our Organic Red Palm Oil has a rich, buttery texture and flavor. Some red palm oils have a strong or harsh flavor, however, our proprietary cold-filtration process removes any strong flavor while retaining the nutrients. The rich orange color of red palm oil reveals the presence of antioxidant Vitamins A and E, in the forms of beta-carotene and rare tocotrienols and tocopherols of the Vitamin E family. These nutrients provide color to vegetables and fruits such as carrots and tomatoes.
Ingredients: Organic fair trade unrefined red palm fruit oil
Storage: No refrigeration required. Solid at cooler temperatures. Specks and variations in color and consistency occur naturally in Nutiva Organic Red Palm Oil. The deep color can stain some utensils.
Isn’t palm oil considered bad for the environment and animals?
Palm oil grown in Southeast Asia is associated with destruction of rainforest and orangutan habitats. We're committed to the principles of Palm Done Right, an international campaign to raise consumer awareness around Palm Projects that contribute to making the environment, communities and the world a better place. We source our palm oil from small organic family farms in Ecuador. Orangutans do not live in Ecuador and Nutiva Organic Red Palm Oil does not contribute to any deforestation or habitat destruction.
Is Nutiva Organic Red Palm Oil raw?
Our Organic Red Palm Oil is not raw. To extract the oil, fresh-harvested organic palm fruit bunches are steamed around 200°F to release the oil from the fruit, then cold expeller-pressed to further separate the oil.

Sustainably made in Ecuador, Nutiva Organic Red Palm Oil has a rich texture that makes it ideal for soups, sautés and sauces.
The region in Ecuador where our Organic Red Palm Oil is grown has numerous small family farms, averaging 10 hectares (about 25 acres), interspersed throughout the regional forests. These subsistence farms were planted many years ago and are now being worked by second and third generation farming families. Palm oil grown in Southeast Asia is associated with destruction of rainforest and orangutan habitat. It is important to note that in addition to the work we do with Natural Habitats, orangutans do not live in Ecuador and our red palm does not contribute to deforestation or habitat destruction.
