Tropical Traditions

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to share this link to you for Tropical Traditions. They have $5 off of shipping right now and coconut oil and palm shortening on sale. The palm shortening is not hydrogenated and a great substitute for that nasty partially hydrogenated soy shortening (Crisco).

Trans fats or partially hydrogenated vegetable oils are very bad for your health making you more susceptible to heat disease, cancer, diabetes and more. They stay in for system a very long time.

Tropical Traditions is a Christian owned company and very good to deal with. I have used their coconut oil, palm shortening and red palm oil. All of these oils are good for weight loss. The coconut oil is especially good and there are some good book on this subject by Sally Fallon and Mary Inig. Mary Inig is a doctor who has done the research and lead the fight against hydrogenated vegetable oils and vegetable oils which are more harmful that butter, coconut oil and palm oil. She has a very interesting story of fighting the big bag companies that were poisoning us with their junk food.

I hope this is helpful to you. You ladies in Europe can probably find a better source near you. Tropical Tradition is in the unites states of America. Also, even if you don't order today, sign up for their email specials. They often have free shipping along with their sales.

This is really interesting. On their website they said that palm oil is the most consumed type of oil in the rest of the world besides north america. That is definitely true here in Indonesia. But, none of the expats here buy the palm oil! It is the cheap stuff, and we have always thought that it is not good for you. So we buy the more expensive corn oil, soybean oil, canola oil, etc. (Unfortunately we can't get the coconut oil here) So I am going to have to do some more reading... maybe I actually will be able to save some money and start buying palm oil!!!
