Hi all,

A number of years back, Crisco reformulated their shortening products to result in fewer trans fats. They switched from this ingredient list:

partially hydrogenated soybean and cottonseed oils, mono- and diglycerides
to this ingredient list:

soybean oil, sunflower oil, fully hydrogenated palm oil, mono- and diglycerides, tbhq and citric acid (antioxidants)
For those who soap with Crisco, did this affect the performance of the soap after using the reformulated Crisco product?

Thanks,

I just took notice, also, that many "store-brand" vegetable shortenings are formulated similar to "Old" Crisco. I might try using some to see how it turns out in soap, but I wouldn't eat any of it in a million years -- it's too much trans fat for my diet...
