Perfect for baking. I love palm shortening for all of my baking needs and this is perfect. This is vegan, gluten free, and soy free and exactly what I need. This shortening comes in a smaller container than I am used to, in just fifteen ounces of shortening, but it is perfect for my everyday baking, outside of big get togethers with the family. This price is fairly well for the smaller version of this product. It works fine in my recipes and I have not tasted a major difference between from the red palm shortening as opposed to regular palm shortening. If you want an item with more flavor then this is not for you, the flavor is very mild and subtle, it does not over power any of the flavors in my dishes, which adds to a cleaner tasting baked good or fried product. Because it is in a smaller container, I can not fry as much with this size. It is perfect for everyday use as well.

Perfect for Baking and Frying
Great in Bread
I was thrilled about trying this because of all of the health claims and benefits.
I've used this to sauté vegetables, and I've used to this make a loaf of bread. Both methods have been successful.
The shortening is golden yellow in color very similar to butter. There is no taste or smell to it straight from the jar. When using it to sauté vegetables, there is a faint coconut oil aroma that is pleasing to the nose.
I typically make my bread with butter or lard, but I replaced it with this shortening. The loaf came out great...no noticeable difference.
I love that this product is organic, non GMO, and it's Fair Trade certified. No trans fats. It's a few more calories per serving than butter, but it's not something that I'll use too much of too often so that doesn't concern me.
Overall, great product.
So this shortening is awesome! I am always looking for healthy alternatives for my family. We do not do well with dairy and so this is perfect for baking! I used it to make cookies and they were very flavorful and the texture was spot on.
The shortening looks like butter and even smells good from the container. I remember my grandmother using regular shortening that always smelled weird. So, I have used almost never in my cooking. Well, until now.
I went on the company's website to get more information on the product and there are some amazing gluten-free and vegan recipes that I will be making.
This is a great product and one I will use in the future for sure!
A healthy oil for your food!!
We so recommend this product to anyone that wants to fry or bake and
Stay healthy at the same time,
This product has an amazing taste you can even put it in the fryer and make healthy French fries
And it can be an amazing gift for anyone..
This is perfect for my baking needs, especially now that this whole “new year, new me” thing where we are all trying to lose weight and stay healthy. The palm shortening is a great alternative to other shortenings with unnecessary fat and other additives. This keeps well in the pantry, which is a bonus as well. It works for frying as well, making normally not so great for you foods, better! You cannot beat the quality and brand, I would highly recommend. The price is not bad for a quality product as well, and as stated it will keep for a while.
