Excellent, Awesome Product
The Okonatur Red Palm Oil is Extra Virgin and Organic. It has all of the characteristics that Red Palm Oil should have. It remains solid in cooler temperatures, but becomes liquid at slightly higher temperatures (well below cooking temp!!) A hot day will cause the oil to become liquid. The color is a deep reddish orange, which means that all of the nutrients that I described above are present. The pungent taste comes from the way the palm fruit tastes. The pungent taste is also an indication that this product is fresh and pure. If Red Palm Oil tastes bland, it is a sign that it is not fresh, and the beneficial nutrients are missing!! I personally would never cook with it, as my body seems to need all of the nutritional benefits derived from eating it raw.
This is a company dedicated to delivering a product with all of the nutritional benefits intact. They are not concerned with just making a quick profit. I can tell by the way they take care to deliver the very highest quality Organic, Extra Virgin Red Palm Oil that they care deeply about their customers. I thank God for people dedicated to the health of their customers, rather than dedicated to lining their pockets with gimmick products. I can tell you, this product is truly a winner. I can assure you that this is one company where the owners as well as the employees eat their product.
Try eating it raw, (i.e., uncooked), and you will see great improvements in your health. It is truly packed with nutrition and health. Everything from your eyes to your hair to your attitude to your energy to your sleep and more will improve upon eating this Red Palm Oil the correct way.
It has been my great pleasure to have found such a wonderful product, as well as a great company to purchase it from. Don’t just take my word, eat it raw and you will write the same raving reviews I just did! An extremely satisfied customer!!!
Tasty Red Palm Oil
It adds a wonderfully unique flavor to egg, meat, and fish dishes. I typically like to blend red palm oil w/ coconut oil for pan frying salmon, or grilling meat or poultry. It also works well in chili recipes.
Red Palm Oil is difficult, if not impossible, to find in retail grocers, including the large, organic, health food grocer.
Even though this oil is widely used throughout the world, being produced in countries such as, West Africa, Malaysia, Indonesia, and South America, it must be a scarce import to the USA. Why else would the price for this oil be so expensive? When you add $10+ shipping cost to the $14+ retail cost, that’s EXPENSIVE! for 16oz, relative to other healthy cooking fats like olive and coconut oil, or butter.
I’ve tried both the Okonatur and Omni brands sold by Amazon, and while both are good, I prefer the Okonatur. The Okonatur red palm oil seems to smoke during frying a little more readily than the Omni brand, which may be due to a different fatty acid profile, however, the flavor characteristics of the Okonatur are more pleasant to my palate.
For price comparison purposes, I have purchased a 16oz jar of Okonatur Red Palm Oil for $18.99 retail (San Francisco, CA) That, vs the $28.00 it will cost on Amazon – not a difficult choice to make.
Bottom line: Buy Online if you can’t find it locally – but give red palm oil a try.
awesome palm oil
It smells like a mild spice but when consumed tastes like carrot puree. And since I love carrots, this is awesome
The only bad thing is that I didn’t order more…
Red Palm Oil
I searched online and discovered that it’s best to purchase red palm oil from west africa and NOT southeast asia where corporations continue to destroy the rainforest habitat to make large palm oil plantations. Tropical Traditions is a company that gets its red palm oil from small scale family farms in West Africa. They are certified organic. I will order from them next time.
Great product lowered by Total Cholesterol by 20 pts
I normally use mostly coconut oil – interspersing with use of palm oil, however tropical traditions has not been able to supply for at least the last 6 months. What a blessing in disguise.
One down side to the use of Palm oil is that it stains everything – small price to pay for the benefits.
I was skeptical, but after research realized this is responsibly resourced and really just good
I became very intered in Red Palm Oil, admittedly due to Dr.Oz. I did some research and realized how beneficial this oil really is; there is no other oil with the unique combination of phytonutrients. It’s got Vitamin E (with high levels of tocotrienols, that’s 40-60 times more potent than the tocopherols form of vitamin E. Mixed carotenes (antioxidants and pro-viamin A) phytosterols, plant squalene and even Co-enzyme Q10! How great is that?
I do have to admit, all those great vitamins and minerals and even the documented scientific research sounds and reads great, but tastes awful!! I have to hold my nose, open the jar, take a tblsp. full, take a few sips of water or juice, eat an acai berry chew, then close the jar, and finally I can let go of my nose! Lol, sounds tedious, but like most things worthwhile, it’s really worth it.
I feel better, look better, and catch alot more attention. People ask you how you get your skin to glow.
Now, the reason I choose this particular brand of oil is really important. If you are not aware the demand for this oil has led to heinous ecological atrocities, including the genocide of orangutangs. Luckily there is an organization, RSPO; an international non-profit association that brings together conservation groups and palm oil firms. The RSPO will not certify palm oil grown on land that had been deforested to grow the crop.
Okonatur red palm oil is certified by the RSPO, Love it!
I wanted to share this info because I feel its important to be aware of the impact of our choices, even just buying some oil. I also love the nutritional content.
It may be a hard oil to swallow, but it’s just a moment of ewwww! in exchange for looking in the mirror and thinking wow! Totally worth it.
