Carotino Palm Fruit Oil- Sponsored Post

*This post was created in sponsorship with Moms Meet and Carotino Palm Fruit Oil. All opinions are my own.

As you now know, I am always on the lookout for new and creative ways to make our lives a little healthier over here. When Moms Meet offered the opportunity to try Carotino's Palm Fruit Oil, I had to do a little research. I had never heard of it before so checked out Palm Oil Health, for all the details. What I learned was that Palm Fruit Oil is a sustainable and is rich in natural chemical compounds that are important for health and nutrition. It's a natural source of Carotenoids & Vitamin E as well as supplying fatty acids and other important fat-soluble micronutrients. You're probably wondering why it's a reddish orange color? Well, think beta carotene, or carrots and you'll get a good idea of the nutrients that are packed in this Malaysian tropical cooking oil.

From the team at Carotino: Carotino is a healthy, natural oil which is ideal for all kinds of cooking, including frying, baking, roasting and making salad dressings, sauces and marinades. It’s zero trans fat, cholesterol free and is a great source of antioxidants, uniquely rich in natural Pro-Vitamin A & E and high in Omega 3 & 6 essential fatty acids.

So yeah, I was going to try swapping out my olive oil and yes, vegetable oil (for my baking) for something that seems like a healthier route to take. I had absolutely smashing results with my proteins. I made a chicken tender dinner for the kids and did a quick flash fry in the palm fruit oil, and it added flavor and wasn't too greasy. I made a coconut crusted shrimp and tossed them in my stir fry pan with the Carotino palm fruit oil and it was delicious and had that nice crisp you would want on you fried foods. If you're going to fry, you can try to use a better for you oil, am I right?

I had a little less success with baking, only because if you let the oil sit or it's combined with something cold like eggs or milk, it begins to solidify if you don't continue mixing it to keep it liquid. I made my ginger apple cake with this oil and I think I should definitely try to make it again, this time with my mixer moving on low to keep the batter silky smooth. The taste was definitely there, just looking for that successful bake. I will honestly buy this oil myself (I did a quick google and it's super easy to purchase if you're picking up what I'm putting down) because I feel like I am almost through this gifted bottle but not done with my experimentation!
