Please pardon my ignorance, but what is Hi-Ratio shortening?
(I'm ordering 2 of her DVDs tonight... I can't wait to receive them!!)
Last night I made my first batch of Sharon's BC, but I only used 3 cup ration because my 4.5qt seemed to fill up with that amount (I'm sure it was me though...) The results were fantastic and no air pockets.
Anyway~ today, after MUCH long research into the night, I've stumbled across "HI-ratio NON-hydrogenated veg. shortening"!!!! YES!!! Only available from the distributor at this time... which works for me. The best part= it's now going to cut my shortening costs by more than 3/4 because I can buy it in 50lb amounts!!! Sorry, but this was something I thought I'd never find.
So is it trans fat free? I would love to find something like that that was hi ratio.
I believe all non-hydrogenated is trans-fat free, however NOT all trans-fat free is non-hydrogenated. I found it very interesting reading last night that products claiming "trans-fat free" (yet partially hydrogenated) are still very bad on your arteries... it's very misleading.
Icing isn't "good" for you, but I just prefer feeding my customers what I would eat. Everyone is going to use what they are comfortable with - I can respect that.
Non-hydrogenated shortenings may contain more saturated fat- up to 50%, but it is GOOD fat and it's not like you eat icing by the spoonful. I'd much rather deal with good saturated fat (in small doses) than hydrogenated plastic oozing through my arteries. JMHO, something I'm very passionate about.
I'm finished and sorry for getting carried away...
Where can I get some of that to try?
