Tropical Traditions Organic Palm Shortening Review & Giveaway!

 

image

I was really excited to try out Tropical Traditions Organic Palm Shortening. Once again, Tropical Traditions didn’t disappoint me! I have used this shortening in a lot of my baking and everything turned out wonderful, some better than usual! My pie crusts for my Thanksgiving pies was the flakiest they’ve ever been!

Organic Palm Shortening

What is Palm Shortening?

Palm shortening is derived from palm oil (read about Virgin Palm Oil here). In its natural state, palm oil is a mixture of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids, with most of the unsaturated fat being monounsaturated fat. Palm shortening is palm oil that has some of its unsaturated fats removed, giving it a very firm texture, and high melting point. The melting point of our Organic Palm Shortening is 97 degrees F., making it very shelf stable. It is NOT hydrogenised, and contains NO trans fats! It is great for deep-fat frying and baking, 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.


Tropical Traditions  is giving one lucky Songberries follower the same (112 oz) Organic Palm Shortening! To enter you must be a follower of Songberries and v
