Organic Palm Fruit Oil?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created January 20, 2011 at 6:47 PM

Is organic palm fruit oil paleo?

A Paleo friend of mine turned me onto Justin's all-natural classic almond butter. http://www.justinsnutbutter.com/products.php

It comes in these cute little single serving size portable squeese packets. I normally eat one of the single serving size packet with an apple as my afternoon snack at work.

I just read the ingredients: dry roasted almonds, organic palm fruit oil. It tastes so good but now I'm worried that maybe palm fruit oil isn't paleo...???

anyone know?

if so, any other suggestions for a great PORTABLE snack or almond butter?

Yup, I recently bought some of the Swanson and it's very very good stuff. Though it's hard to get out of the bottle as it's not yet warm enough here to make it go liquid which defeats the squeeze bottle it comes in. You'll need a long, but narrow spoon - or a flat knife.

Love the little packets too! I only eat them once a week or so, but they are super handy and cute.

@TheSethAffect - no evaporated cane sugar in the plain almond butter and that's what I eat. You're looking at the Chocolate Almond Butter.

I love the classic packets that are nuts and oil only! Great for travel and portion control. Hope there doesn't turn out to be a reason to avoid them altogether. :) Thanks for asking.

You should probably be more worried about the evaporated cane sugar honestly.

well i think the paleo-ness of the palm fruit oil is determined by how much it is processed. it's definitely better than any other sort of vegetable oils. for cooking/ eating i buy http://www.tropicaltraditions.com/red_palm_oil.htm it definitely has a unique flavor, but it's delicious. wait for a coupon code of some sort too. tropical traditions always has great deals

Seems to be a confusion in lumping all palm oils together - palm fruit oil apparently very different than palm kernel oil. I eat the Justin's almond butter packs almost daily.

Swanson now makes an Extra Virgin Red Palm Oil Organic:

Wilderness Family Naturals makes a palm oil (not palm kernel): http://www.wildernessfamilynaturals.com/category/food-oils-natural-red-palm-oil.php
