Rewarded Review

My mom used Cristco when I was growing up, and I’ve since learned to look for healthier alternatives. 😉 I saw palm shortening recommended and was happy to see that this is organic and sustainably-farmed. It works great as a dairy-free substitute as well. I’ve used it several times in making dairy-free icing and it works a charm!

I have used this for years and Spectrum is my favorite brand. It's great for greasing baking pans as well as using in recipes. It makes great pie crust also. I get it from iHerb because it is always fresh and stays in date longer then other places. I highly recommend Spectrum Organic Shortening it's a great quality oil.

Whenever you need to use margarine or cold butter this is a great replacement. I've been using this brand for a few years and it never failed. Very neutral in taste but when you mix it in the dough and it is baked you get that sweet cookie smell. I also love it in dairy-free carob frosting (coconut shortening, coconut cream or coconut manna, honey or maple syrup, carob).

It doesn't really add any flavour like regular shortening but I like to use it when roasting potatoes. The container is pretty big too. I think it'll last for some time.

All vegetable ingredient but works like dairy fats, great for my diet. Smooth and stable, healthier alternative for making desserts. Tastes neutral, good for adding your own flavours. Size is big enough and package stable for stocking before my next order. The brand is highly recommended from my diet and cooking forums. Glad I discovered this!

Looks, tastes and acts just like the name brand shortening without the harmful substances. it is white, not yellow, so it doesn't change the color of your baked goods. I recommend this shortening.Spectrum shortening

Great for baking. Crisco is perhaps a top reason for heart disease but no other alternatives. This is GREAT. Palm oil is medicinal and works perfectly. We use to make scones with almond flour. Not exactly the same as with flour, but exquisite copy.

I use it for frying. It has a bland taste, which I prefer for this type of cooking fat. Note that it is made from palm fruit.

I love this shortening. I purchased because it don’t contain soy. It taste great. Has no smell great quality. I use it in my baked goods. I will buy again. I like it doesn’t contain soy. The price is reasonable.
