Pie dough shortening
Dec. 6, 2013
Stratas Foods introduces the Flex Palm line of palm shortenings that look, feel and perform like soybean-based partially hydrogenated shortenings. According to the company, these new shortenings are smooth, creamy and pliable with a white appearance, wide working functional temperature range and consistent texture from cube-to-cube and lot-to-lot. See the results in pie dough, where homogeneous distribution of shortening during mixing mitigates lumps, cracks and tears.
