Organic Palm Shortening {giveaway}



Tropical Traditions is (North) America's source for coconut oil, and a trusted brand in our home. For the past year we have been making the switch to better choices for our family, all thanks to Tropical Traditions.

This time around, I've had the opportunity to test Organic Palm Shortening. I am not a big consumer of shortening, but, I do always have some in my home. (I make a yummy icing with shortening.)


Organic Palm Shortening

Tropical Traditions Organic Palm Shortening is produced from palm fruit grown by small family farms in Columbia. This is a traditional fat that contains NO trans fats.

The melting point is 97F.

Organic Palm Shortening can be used for a variety of applications, such as deep fat frying, baking, dairy substitute.

Store your Organic Palm Shortening at room temperature.



I am excited about making the change to use palm shortening in my kitchen. As summer is quickly fading into Fall, I tend to get back into making comfort meals for my family, which includes more home baking. One of my favourite Fall treats is making pumpkin whoopie pies with my shortening icing.

I am used to vegetable shortening which is solid and white in colour. Tropical Traditions palm shortening is of a much looser consistency, you can stir it with a spoon and it's a slight yellow colour. Tasting the palm shortening, I didn't really think it had much of a noticeable taste to it, and no odour. When I used it to make my favourite icing, I noticed that the consistency of the icing was definitely more runny than I've been used to, but, I expected that. I enjoyed the taste of the icing and I feel making the icing with palm shortening is a better choice for family and guests, you know, if one must eat icing!

Using palm shortening has proven to be a great alternative to vegetable shortening and a positive change in my kitchen. My next step is to start browsing the recipe section at Tropical Traditions and find some new recipes and uses for palm shortening.
