1 Gallon Organic Palm Shortening - 112 oz.
Palm shortening, derived from palm oil, has some of its unsaturated fats removed, giving it a very firm texture and a high melting point. The melting point of the Organic Palm Shortening is 97 degrees F., making it very shelf stable. It also contains no trans fats and is not hydrogenised. It's great for deep-fat frying, and is not prone to rancidity. Since it has been separated from some of the unsaturated portion of the oil, it is colorless and odorless, and will not affect the taste of foods like Virgin Palm Oil does. The Tropical Traditions Organic Palm Shortening comes from small scale family farms in South America.
The Organic Palm Shortening comes in a very large tub. There's quite a bit of palm shortening and it should last the average person a while. My husband has cooked with it a few times now and we still have quite a bit left. The tub has a handle and lid making it easy to lift and store. The palm shortening is white in color and looks a lot like lard would. Once in a while, we like to deep fry foods in my household. Fried chicken, french fries, and tenderloins have been cooked in our fryer using the Organic Palm Shortening. It doesn't have any odor and has no taste, so you can eat your foods with no added flavors. The Organic Palm Shortening is yet another product from Tropical Traditions that we are very satisfied with.
