Shortenings

Request Form

Shortening is formulated to make a crumbly, crusty and flaky texture and firm enough to support the weight of the fillings. Perfect for making of filling cream for sandwich cookies, decorative creaming, pastries. The reason it is called shortening is that it prevents cross-linkage between gluten molecules. Cross linking gives dough elasticity. In pastries such as cake, which should not be elastic, shortening is used.
