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.Review by Dan Neff (Posted on 8/16/14)
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.Review by Karen Fich (Posted on 7/14/14)
