Palm Shortening Giveaway from Tropical Traditions

palm_shortening

It’s no secret that I love Tropical Traditions. Their coconut oil is the best I’ve found. Read this article to learn lots of uses for coconut oil.

Besides their coconut oil, I absolutely love their Palm Shortening!! What? (you might be thinking)  Shortening??!! Isn’t shortening evil?? Regular ol’ shortening that you find at the store is NOT good for us. It is hydrogenated, not easily digested, and not a healthy fat at all.

But Palm Shortening – especially this high quality palm shortening from Tropical Traditions? I completely trust it.  It is not hydrogenated. It is not a trans fat. Our bodies recognize it and can utilize it. It can be heated to high temperatures and will not go rancid. Palm Shortening is wonderful and healthy!

If you’ve heard anything about the production of palm oil and how it negatively effects our environment – displacing human and animal populations, we do have reason to be concerned. However, I want you to know that you can trust Tropical Traditions to be safe, environmentally friendly, and careful. Here’s what they have to say about it:

Tropical Traditions Organic Palm Shortening comes from small scale family farms in South America. These farmers are certified by ProForest, which ensures that they meet strict social, environmental and technical criteria. With regard to environmental criteria, the assessments are carried out at the landscape and operational level at both the farms and processing facilities. These assessments cover environmental impact on the soil, water, air, biodiversity and local communities. The lands the farmers use are not lands that were deforested. The lands used to grow the palm fruit are lands previously used for agricultural purposes (cattle, rice, banana).

So how do you use Palm Shortening? Well, my favorite uses include making Whole Wheat Pie Crust, making Whole Wheat Quick Mix, and frying foods.

Today, Tropical Traditions is giving away a gallon-sized bucket of their organic Palm Shortening! Interested in winning this great prize?  Tropical Traditions requires their giveaway winners to be on their newsletter list, so if you haven’t already, head on over and sign up for the Tropical Traditions Newsletter. I love receiving them because I always stay informed of their sales that way. :)  Once you’ve done that, leave a comment on this post for a chance to win.

I’ll draw a random winner on Tuesday, May 28. Be watching for a post stating the winner as you will be responsible for contacting me if your name is chosen!

    I use this all the time after you introduced me to it! I also love their coconut oil. I bought 2 small jars a couple months ago and try to use it sparingly (so that means I haven’t been able to try lots of the great things that I’ve read it can do) since it’s so expensive. But guess what!? I just won a gallon of their coconut oil yesterday! I was (am) beyond excited! :)

  101. Carolyn Stutz says

    I am amazed at how much I like this palm shortening. I’d tried something similar a long time ago and hated it. But on your advice, Laura (read: going on and on and on about its virtues -lol:)) I gave it a try. I’ve NEVER had a pie crust roll out as beautifully as when I used this shortening. I’m also making over a hundred tortillas for my daughter’s graduation party. I’m using a combo of coconut oil and palm shortening. Oh my word. they are incredible to work with and yes, I’ve had to try a couple – you know, to make sure they’re okay to serve others. Yeah, we’ll go with that.
    p.s. I’ve been getting the newsletter, but I really appreciate when you give the heads-up regarding sales :)

    I have enjoyed everything I have purchased from Tropical Traditions so far.

    It would be neat to receive the Palm Shortening. I am hoping to try it in place of lard (or other bad-for-you shortening) to make some home-made tortillas!

    My son has autism, so it’s important that we keep his environment free of chemicals and highly processed foods. I was so happy to find that this palm shortening tastes even better than the dairy-free butter product I used to use in his gluten-free, casein-free (and egg free, sine he’s allergic to eggs) chocolate chip cookies. When you’re limited with ingredients you can use for baking, you’re elated when you find ones that make foods taste great! I love your blog, by the way. It gives me so many great ideas for managing my household and taking care of my family!

    I love Tropical Traditions! I use their coconut oil as well as their Palm oil shortening. I’m actually almost out of my shortening, so I’d love to win it! I use it in my pie crusts, cornbread, cake/brownie mixes, biscuit/pancake mix, anywhere a recipe calls for shortening or vegetable oil. I’m so glad that I started reading and researching ingredients. I would never go back to the other shortening.
