Perfect

Yes, real butter (which I also buy powdered), might be healthier. But in dry mixes, especially for shtf/emergency, this is absolutely perfect!

It has become a staple for dry mixes for both storage and instead of the commercial biscuit and cake mixes. (And to have on hand in event of poor planning).

I tried it in homemade flour tortillas -- just mixed the powder with the other dry ingredients and used boiling water (added a bit more for the shortening powder). Worked fine!

What???

I'm not quibbling about the health aspect of the ingredients in this product. What I want to know is WHY corn syrup & a milk derivative are ingredients in what 'should' be a FAT... I think I'll just stick with butter, lard & bacon grease.

Excellent Substitute For Off the Shelf

I use powdered shortening in my homemade baking mix. It extends the shelf life over that made with solid shortening. All I have to do is add a bit more water when I mix it up. Like Dan, I'm over 60, still very healthy, and have been "exposed" to products with these ingredients my entire life. Anything can be bad for you in extreme quantities. Search the web, you'll find you can actually get very sick and even die from drinking too much water.

Amazing Product

I was completely shocked at the texture and consistency of the product once it was rehydrated. I only used it for a couple of icings so far, but I can see the benefit of having this available in an emergency or just poor planning. Of course some people think anything with corn syrup or trans fats will kill you simply by breathing in the fumes or being in the same county with someone who uses it. If they live in that much fear, they are free to never use these ingredients, but for those of us who have consumed them all of our lives, are over 60, and still as healthy as many people half our age...let the suppliers make these available for us should we want them.

GET RID OF THE TRANS FAT

I wanted to buy powdered shortening, however it is made with trans fat which is the partially hydrogenated soybean oil. Also the corn syrup is deadly. Both the soybeans and corn are GMO in this country. Terrible ingredients that are detrimental to health.
