Spectrum Organic Shortening -- 24 oz
I love this product!! I use it mainly to replace butter in recipes. I also use it to grease baking pans and when I pan-fry turkey patties or burgers. It also makes fantastic frosting! Vitacost price beats my local stores prices. Highly recommend this shortening!

Great for baking!
I'm unable to find Spectrum Organic Shortening in my local grocery stores. So I order it online at Vitacost. Grocery stores sell a popular name brand shortening which is not organic but which is hydrogenated. You will only find this out if you read the labels. I will not consume any product that has been hydrogenated and thereby, altered. I use the organic shortening in my baking and never have to be concerned about saturated fat. Wonderful product.

great product; use in all my baking
I have used this for years instead of hydrogenated shortening. Works for all my recipes. After using non-hydrog shortening for a while, you will be able to notice the difference in taste: when you then eat a cookie or pastry with hydrogenated shortening, you'll notice the distinct unpleasant taste/aftertaste (hard to describe). My daughter did a comparison experiment for 4H, and we noticed the hydrog cookies were much crispier than the non-hydrog, but tasted almost...fake, I guess. The non-hydrog cookies had more flavor...tasted more natural and real. Especially nice to know the health benefits of non-hydrog, too.

Great alternative to Crisco. I found out that my local grocer has the same product for the same price though.
