Kpangnan Butter, also known as Golden Shea Butter, is light yellow and has a mild nutty, slightly earthy typical smell. The Pentadesma butyracea tree, from which the fruit comes, mostly grows in West Africa in the savannah. The butter is pronounced "pan-ya". The nuts are roasted, mechanically pressed and then filtered. Our Kpangnan Butter is COSMOS and NATRUE approved, Kosher and can be stored for at least 18 months.
