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), since it does not contain trans fats. Trans fat is made when manufacturers add hydrogen to vegetable oil - a process called hydrogenation, when liquid oils turn into solid fats like shortening and hard margarine.
