Organic Vegan Superfood Shortening
Nutiva's shortening is an organic blend of coconut and palm oils. It is the best choice for baked goods such as pie crusts, biscuits and cookies that call for a neutral-flavored, dairy-free shortening.
While the palm oil is ideal for creating flaky baked goods, 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 & E naturally found in red palm oil.
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.

More Info On This Product
You may not yet be familiar with the amazing nutrition and taste of red palm oil, but for over 5,000 years it has been a staple of indigenous cultures. Legend has it that this sacred food was revered for its healthful properties and entombed with the pharaohs of ancient Egypt for their enjoyment in the afterlife.
One of our most recent discoveries, red palm oil is a nutrient-dense culinary oil. Its rich orange color 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.
