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

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
