Murumuru Butter is pressed from the reddish-orange fruits of the Astrocaryum murumuru tree. This tall palm tree is native to Brazil and other regions of the Amazon.

Our Murumuru Butter is a versatile vegetable butter that possesses a firm yet somewhat creamy texture. The solidity can vary depending on the temperature stored at, but in warmer room temperature conditions, it can be easily scooped from the container. It melts upon contact with the skin.

Our Murumuru Butter is carefully stored and packaged to maintain the purity, freshness and beneficial properties of this premium quality, nutritive butter.

Comments: Rancid. Contacted company and no response.

FNWL Response: Hi Melanie, please be assured that our Murumuru Butter is fresh. Upon receiving your complaint, our staff took another close look at our current lot of Murumuru Butter and confirmed its fresh and free of any odor that could imply rancidity. Our Customer Care Manager left a voicemail for you at the number associated with your account and has been trying to reach you for at least two weeks now to learn more about your experiences. It's unlikely but certainly possible that we may have sent you a different butter accidentally labeled as the Murumuru - that might be why it was different in texture and aroma from what you expected for Murumuru Butter. At your earlier convenience, would you please call us toll free at (800) 340-0080 or (203) 702-2500 so that we assist you further. Thanks very much.
