Cargill? The Cargill that's the huge mega-agricultural business? I didn't know they made frosting!

They don't make frosting, they make icing shortening. Is there anyone out there that has used this?

I'm sorry thin4life. If I had read your posting closer, I would have seen that. icon_redface.gif Is it a hi-ratio shortening or regular?

Not sure what type of shortening it is, I was wondering if anyone on CC could shed any light on this type of shortening.

I'm also looking for feedback on this shortening...Clear Valley icing shortening is made with canola oil, hydrogenated cottonseed oil, and mono & diglycerides, and it has zero trans fat. Our current zero trans fat shortening (Sweetex Z, which is based on palm oil) is not fit for making frosting for decorating due to extreme temperature sensitivity.
