Has anyone else noticed that Sweetex (hi ratio shortening) has changed? When I bought it recently at the cake store I always shop at, it was called Sweetex Goldflex?? The consistency was much heavier and greasier than before. The cashier said you can no longer buy the old Sweetex. Has anyone else had this problem?
US banned transfat. All formulations have changed. Ugh!
Just moving this above all the spam
how well did it work in your frosting. I looked at the product online notice two different ones one with palm oil and another one I don't remember what. Would like to know which one you bought and what the results were
As johnson60fus said, the transfats have been removed so it is no longer the Sweetex that we knew. When I ran out of the old kind, I just went back to Crisco and yes, I am struggling with my shortening based frosting. Fortunately, I usually use butter.
It may not be cost effective for you professionals, but for me (being mainly a home baker and health nut), the Spectrum Organics All Vegetable Shortening has worked really well! I use it in my SMBC along with butter.
