I posted this earlier in the "how to forum" Can you guys tell me which one of the Walmart Shortenings do you use?
Hi everyone, i decided to post this question here because you guys are talking about the Walmart Shortening. My question is which Walmart brand do you guys buy to make your BC? I was at Walmart during my lunch break, and I was going to buy it. There was the Walmart Brand veg shortening and the Walmart brand shortening (which is prepared from meat fats and veg oil) The veg shortening is just like Crisco. They have the same ingredients. I hate the BC that I make with Crisco. I wanted to make some with high ratio shortening, but global sugar doesnt have it in stock for the summer. I dont want to order it online and get a tub of melted shortening and my local cake supply store doesnt cary it. the closest place to me would be in Bensalem PA ( I think). (not at all familiar with any other cake supply stores in the south jersey area.)
I use Walmart Veg Shortening, never had any problems with it. I haven't tried high ratio yet, same problem, no one near me carries it.
I have used the both with no problems. I do prefer the veg shortening, but they were out one time and I had to get the other. It worked out just fine, but didn't seem quite as smooth to me.
If you look at the label, not the ingredients but the nutrition facts, walmart vegetable shortening has 2.5 grams of trans fat and crisco doesn't have them anymore.
the walmart all veg. brand with 2.5 grams of trans fat.
The Walmart veg. shortening. Never had any problems with it.
Thank you guys for your responses. I forgot to look at the nutritional facts on the Walmart Veg shortening to see how much of the trans fat it has.
