I am heading to a Wally World this afternoon with my sister and with the price of shortening going up and up, I thought I would check out their brand price, but does it have trans fats still? Thanks in advance!!
Wal-Mart carries 2 diferent types of shortening. I use the one that has 2.5 g of trans-fat. Make sure you get the right one.
It sure does. its kinda soft so watch your water you are adding to it
That's the only kind I've ever used. I buy the "Great Value All Vegetable Shortening", the one in the dark blue. It does still have Trans Fat.
At my walmarts here (three of them) ALL the Walmart shortenings went to ZERO Trans Fat -
I have finally made the switch to hi-ratio shortening and will never go back! I cannot believe the hassles I had w/ all the shortenings in the past compared to the stuff I use now.
I hope yours still has trans fat in it, otherwise - good luck. Just be sure and read the label really well.
Wow, I completely thought you were trying to avoid trans fats until I read down to the bottom. Do trans fats help? I don't use a lot of shortening and when I do, I use the high ratio which works really well or Crisco just for fondant. What do the trans fats do?
I tried theGV All-Veg Shortning this weekend & HATED it. My BC was lumpy. I went back to Bake-Rite shortning & all was well.
Our Bake-Rite here has meat fat in it - I would only use all-vegetable. Do they make a different kind?
In another thread they are saying Sweetex is going 0 trans fat also
All of the walmarts I've been to lately have the trans-fat free shortening. Recently I posted a thread that I found shortening with trans-fat at Aldi's. So if you have on around you they carry it there. HTH.
i used to use wal mart brand all the time....a few months ago...it had changed to zero trans fat....it's so thin....it's just like slop.
i buy another off brand now, you better read the label before you buy it, there's 2 different kinds out there.
