Organic Palm Shortening from Tropical Traditions #Giveaway

Friday, December 16, 2011 Posted by Dina N

Now that the weather has cooled off, I find myself in a baking mood even more than usual. Biscuits, pies, bread - these wonderful aromas are hard to resist. And for good baking, of course, I need good supplies - including a new product I've been testing out. The Organic Palm Shortening from Tropical Traditions is perfect for baking - now, during the holidays, and year round.

This palm shortening comes in a huge 1 gallon tub. Seven pounds might sound like a lot of shortening but if you bake or fry often, you'll be grateful to not run out too quickly. Palm shortening is derived from palm oil. Did you know that palm oil is the most heavily consumed dietary oil in the world after soybean oil? Not counting the U.S. where most of the world’s soybean oil is consumed, palm oil is the most popular dietary oil in the world. Palm shortening is palm oil that has some of its unsaturated fats removed, giving it a very firm texture, and high melting point. I love it that it's USDA certified organic. Besides, this palm shortening is not hydrogenised, and contains no trans fats.

I find the Tropical Traditions palm shortening just fantastic for deep frying and baking. It's colorless and odorless and you can't taste it in prepared food. If you do want some taste, I recommend the Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil - I've used it almost daily for the past couple of years and could not be happier with it.

Deal Alert
Normally, the palm shortening retails at $40.75 but right now, it's on sale at 42% off! You can snag a gallon tub for just $23.59 until Sunday, December 18. The palm shortening is just one of the many excellent products from Tropical Traditions. If you've been waiting for the chance to try them, do it now - they offer free domestic ground shipping with code 261112, good through midnight EST on December 19.
