Nutiva®, the world’s leading brand of coconut, chia, hemp & red palm organic superfoods is pleased to announce the introduction of two new products: buttery spread and shortening. These products offer the nutritional benefits of red palm and coconut combined with exceptional flavor and performance for health conscious home chefs and foodies.  The nutiva organic buttery spread and shortening join the brand’s extensive superfoods portfolio including the recently introduced organic unrefined red palm Oil.
