Nutiva's vegan shortening is an organic blend of organic coconut and palm oils. We source our palm oil from small, organic family farms and partner with Natural Habitats™ to ensure that our palm oil does not contribute to deforestation or habitat destruction. Our keto and paleo-friendly shortening is the best choice for baked goods such as pie crusts, biscuits, and cookies that call for a neutral-flavored, dairy-free shortening. The fair-trade certified palm oil in our vegan shortening is essential for creating flaky baked goods like pie crusts, and the coconut oil adds extra health benefits like lauric acid. The palm oil also adds an extra dose of antioxidants and vitamins to create the ultimate healthy treat!
