Spectrum Naturals, Organic All Vegetable Shortening, 24 oz (680 g)17 Reviews
Expiration Date: Dec 2015
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

When we say our Organic Shortening is good, we really mean good. It's better alternative than ordinary shortening because it's never hydrogenated which means it has 0 g trans fat. Even better are the dozens of small family farmers in Colombia who cultivate and press our palm oil in an environmentally sustainable manner. It's the right choice for you, the farmers and the earth...just imagine what it does for a pie crust.
Shortening performs best at room temperature
Mechanically pressed organic palm oil.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I'd never used this before but it's made life so much simpler cooking and baking in South Korea.
I've used it to make bread, cupcakes, and dairy free butter cream frosting. Better than Crisco and non-hydrogenated. Highly recommend it!
