Supposed to be healthy; Taste is Gag.
Here is first experience with red palm oil:
The oil looked somewhat like a more viscous tomato paste and then the smell hit me. It didn’t smell like something I wanted to eat. I tasted a little bit and found it to be an indescribably bad taste – somewhat like when you throw up a little bit in your mouth. I kept an open mind and used it to cook some everyday items like meat and eggs. The oil smoked almost right away over heat. I was rather disappointed in that, but someone else said they experienced the same thing and that it’s not supposed to do that. The food I made with it gained the flavor of the palm oil, unfortunately, and it was rather strong.
I’m thinking that when you use it, you need to put it in dishes that will overpower it with strong spices and other flavors. If anybody has any suggestions on complimentary cuisine, I’d appreciate it. I still think the health benefits outweigh the bad taste, so I want to keep using it – just sparingly and in dishes that overpower it.

Red Palm Oil
awesome palm oil
It smells like a mild spice but when consumed tastes like carrot puree. And since I love carrots, this is awesome 🙂
The only bad thing is that I didn’t order more…
Tasty Red Palm Oil
It adds a wonderfully unique flavor to egg, meat, and fish dishes. I typically like to blend red palm oil w/ coconut oil for pan frying salmon, or grilling meat or poultry. It also works well in chili recipes.
Red Palm Oil is difficult, if not impossible, to find in retail grocers, including the large, organic, health food grocer.
Even though this oil is widely used throughout the world, being produced in countries such as, West Africa, Malaysia, Indonesia, and South America, it must be a scarce import to the USA. Why else would the price for this oil be so expensive? When you add $10+ shipping cost to the $14+ retail cost, that’s EXPENSIVE! for 16oz, relative to other healthy cooking fats like olive and coconut oil, or butter.
I’ve tried both the Okonatur and Omni brands sold by Amazon, and while both are good, I prefer the Okonatur. The Okonatur red palm oil seems to smoke during frying a little more readily than the Omni brand, which may be due to a different fatty acid profile, however, the flavor characteristics of the Okonatur are more pleasant to my palate.
For price comparison purposes, I have purchased a 16oz jar of Okonatur Red Palm Oil for $18.99 retail (San Francisco, CA) That, vs the $28.00 it will cost on Amazon – not a difficult choice to make.
Bottom line: Buy Online if you can’t find it locally – but give red palm oil a try.
Excellent, Awesome Product
The Okonatur Red Palm Oil is Extra Virgin and Organic. It has all of the characteristics that Red Palm Oil should have. It remains solid in cooler temperatures, but becomes liquid at slightly higher temperatures (well below cooking temp!!) A hot day will cause the oil to become liquid. The color is a deep reddish orange, which means that all of the nutrients that I described above are present. The pungent taste comes from the way the palm fruit tastes. The pungent taste is also an indication that this product is fresh and pure. If Red Palm Oil tastes bland, it is a sign that it is not fresh, and the beneficial nutrients are missing!! I personally would never cook with it, as my body seems to need all of the nutritional benefits derived from eating it raw.
This is a company dedicated to delivering a product with all of the nutritional benefits intact. They are not concerned with just making a quick profit. I can tell by the way they take care to deliver the very highest quality Organic, Extra Virgin Red Palm Oil that they care deeply about their customers. I thank God for people dedicated to the health of their customers, rather than dedicated to lining their pockets with gimmick products. I can tell you, this product is truly a winner. I can assure you that this is one company where the owners as well as the employees eat their product.
Try eating it raw, (i.e., uncooked), and you will see great improvements in your health. It is truly packed with nutrition and health. Everything from your eyes to your hair to your attitude to your energy to your sleep and more will improve upon eating this Red Palm Oil the correct way.
It has been my great pleasure to have found such a wonderful product, as well as a great company to purchase it from. Don’t just take my word, eat it raw and you will write the same raving reviews I just did! An extremely satisfied customer!!!
