I used to be really particular when it came to what kind of foods I would eat and what kind of products I would use. I used to think if it was a big name brand that everyone had heard of, that meant it was good for me. Of course, I've grown a lot since then and thankfully there are companies like Tropical Traditions who offer quality products that are affordable. After using their products, I don't know if I will ever be able to use another brand.
So far, I have used Tropical Traditions Virgin Palm Oil
while baking and in the our deep fryer. Our chicken strips and fries were oh-so-yummy! I can't believe how much of a difference one product can make. I felt a lot better because I was taking my health into consideration and chicken strips are one of my favorite foods. Oh, and another important thing, it works wonders when you have a headache!
Palm Oil: The Number 1 Dietary Oil for the Rest of the World
Although scarcely used in the US, palm oil is the most heavily consumed dietary oil in the world after soybean oil. If one were to exclude the U.S. where most of the world’s soybean oil is consumed, palm oil would be the most popular dietary oil in the world. Palm oil traditionally has been used for baking, shortenings, margarines and deep fat frying, as it is shelf stable with a high melting point and does NOT require hydrogenation. Therefore, it contains no trans fatty acids.
Tropical Traditions Virgin Palm Oil
Tropical Traditions Virgin Palm Oil comes from West Africa, NOT South East Asia. Palm oil is native to the tropical areas of Africa, where it grows wild. It is a traditional oil used for more than 5000 years in African countries, where small-scale family farms flourish. When you purchase Tropical Traditions Virgin Palm Oil, you are supporting small scale family producers in Africa, and NOT large corporate plantations in South East Asia. Our Virgin Palm Oil is certified organic. Virgin Palm Oil has a very high smoke point at about 425 degrees F., making it an excellent oil for frying. However, the longer you use high heat, the more you will destroy the natural antioxidants. Virgin Palm Oil should not be reused after one frying. Studies have shown that about 70% of the carotenes are retained after one deep frying, but after 4 deep fries there will be virtually no carotenes left.
Retail Price: $25.00 for 1 quart
