Vegetable shortening


Vegetable shortening like margarine is made from vegetable oil, the only difference is that shortening contains 100% fat, and margarine 60-80% fat. It is better to use Organic shortening (from palm oil - pressed palm oil), as it does not contain trans fats. It is a process called hydrogenation.
