I have been using Sweetex shortening for years - my supplier now states they can no longer get it and they carry something called Elite Shortening in a 50lb box. Has anyone used this with the same results?? I cannot find in the description or on the box where it would be high ratio. Could someone please help me out before I purchase a box?? And if anyone has any other ideas on how to get Sweetex at a resonable cost - I would love that also!!

I purchase Sweetex at Restaurant Depot it is about $50 for the 50 pound box. Gordon's Food Service (GFS) will special order it. However, their price is $90 for 50 pounds. I have never heard of Elite Shortening.

Thanks for the advise - I called Restaurant Depot and you need to be a member to purchase from them. Anyone else hear of Elite??
Or have suggestions for Sweetex - where the shipping is a little more reasonable?
