Excellent, Awesome Product

This is great red palm oil. Even though most people are using it to cook with, the health benefits are much greater if you do not heat it. It is great in a salad. Use with organic vinegar, salt, cayenne, and other spices you would like as a dressing. CoQ10 is destroyed upon heating, so cooking is a terrible way to get the health benefits. Also, the vitamin E is destroyed upon being heated. This product also contains an extremely high content of vitamin A, which is also destroyed upon heating. The one user who described his birds appearance glow after using this product must have fed it to him right out of the jar, without heating it. Even though cooking with is occasionally is okay, remember that almost all of the time, it is much better to eat it raw (unheated). This is one of the truly great raw foods which is loaded with, as far as I am concerned, the most beneficial combination of nutrients that every body needs.

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

Red Palm Oil is a wonderful, healthy, tasty addition to a low carb diet. If you are searching for a new healthy fat to use in your meal preparations, in addition to the coconut oil you are already using, then Red Palm Oil is for you. The bright orange color comes from the abundant caratinoids in the red palm fruit. It is also rich source of vitamin E, and CoQ10.

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.

I love the palm oil. It is organic, extra virgin, and unrefined–which is what I was looking for. One of the jars arrived broken and the company remedied the situation immediately. I will definitely order again! Also, it was the best price I could find.

Excellent Product

I received this red palm oil about 3 days ago. It is absolutely delicious. We consume it straight from the jar as an anti-oxidant supplement.
It smells like a mild spice but when consumed tastes like carrot puree. And since I love carrots, this is awesome icon smile OKONATUR 100% Organic Extra Virgin Red Palm Oil 16 Fl Oz

The only bad thing is that I didn’t order more…

Excellent product!!!

I received last week this extra virgin red palm oil, and for those gourmet vegetarians like me, I strongly recommend to use this oil to prepare a Tofu Stir Fry (tofu, zucchini, and yellow squash, with some spices as coriander, garlic and salt). Delicious and very healthy Dish!

Red Palm Oil

I heard a lot about the health benefits of red palm oil and decided to try it. I’ve been taking two teaspoons per day straight out of the jar raw and unheated for a week and have already noticed an improvement in my health. My skin tone looks brighter and I feel calmer.

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.

I normally buy my Palm oil from Tropical Traditions, however they have not been able to supply. So when i found this brand I was not happy based on the price and shipping cost. However, this brand has had phenomenal impact on my cardiovascular health; dropping my total cholesterol from 186 mg/dL to 167 mg/dL (LDL from 111 to 114) over a two month period. I just finished off the jar so I am buying more after this review.

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 icon smile OKONATUR 100% Organic Extra Virgin Red Palm Oil 16 Fl Oz

Ok, so I’m sure many of you jumped on this due to Dr.Oz and I have to admit, so did I. I’ve already been taking organic non GMO extra virgin coconut oil, and that does wonders for me. I mean Miranda Kerr is a great model to vouche for the benefits of coconut oil.

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! icon smile OKONATUR 100% Organic Extra Virgin Red Palm Oil 16 Fl Oz 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. icon smile OKONATUR 100% Organic Extra Virgin Red Palm Oil 16 Fl Oz

I feel better, look better, and catch alot more attention. People ask you how you get your skin to glow. icon smile OKONATUR 100% Organic Extra Virgin Red Palm Oil 16 Fl Oz

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! icon smile OKONATUR 100% Organic Extra Virgin Red Palm Oil 16 Fl Oz

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. icon smile OKONATUR 100% Organic Extra Virgin Red Palm Oil 16 Fl Oz

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.

This is the second Red Palm Oil that I have tried. THis bottle of oil smoked when I turned on the heat. I hadn’t had that to happen before. I am satisfied with the flavor though.
