    Is the claim nonsence ? Is there such a thing called "Non-hydrogenated
    shortening" ?

    Not nonsense at all. Crisco (in the green can) and Spectrum are two brands
    of trans fat-free shortening. Crisco TF-free was introduced about 3 years
    ago. If you'd like more info, here's the Crisco web site:
    http://www.crisco.com/about/0_grams.asp

    I've tried the new Crisco and I can't tell the difference between it and the
    original version. Now if they could just find a way to make it
    calorie-free... :-)

    Yep. Commonly known as fat.

    Spectrum shortening is non hydrogenated.

    Just about every margarine sold in Australia.

    Smart Balance makes one without partially hydrogenated oils. There's also
    Earth Balance. I use Smart Balance Light for my normal spread (like on
    toast) but recently bought a tub of the regular Smart Balance for use in
    baking, where the watery Light spread won't really work. It has less
    saturated fat than butter.

    Margarine-like spreads are not shortening.

    Somebody else mentioned Smart Balance. On the chance that
    it is similar to "margarines sold in Australia" let's compare
    "Smart Balance with Omega-3" to "Crisco no trans-fat shortening"

    Smart Crisco
    Amount 100.0 g 100.0 g (11 Tbsp)
    Carb 0.0 g 0.0 g
    Fat 66.8 g 99.96g
    Trans-fat 0.67g 0.61g
    Protein 0.0 0.0 g
    Unknown? 30 g

    So Smart Balance instead of Crisco in a recipe will not only taste
    different, it will make for different texture and cooking
    characteristics. (And may have slightly _more_ trans-fat)

    Depends who you ask and where you live Wes. I've always
    understood "shortening" to be any fat or oil added to flour
    or similar to make pastry or biscuits or scones or similar.
    We certainly use margarines for that here, but our
    margarines are under different rules to yours.

    We aren't alone in being confused; compare these three
    different sources of definitions:
    http://www.recipezaar.com/library/getentry.zsp?id=430
    Yours
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shortening
    Middle
    http://www.ochef.com/401.htm
    Mine

    To Jan, I was checking on transfats contents of ours - have
    you seen this, look at the IGA:
    http://www.choice.com.au/viewArticle...aspx?id=104574
    Choice pick it as healthy - with 4% transfat. Download the
    pdf - it gets worse with others.

    I'll buy that. Still, if the recipe says one cup shortening,
    it's got to make a difference whether it's 100 grams of
    good tasting fat or 154 grams of tasteless fat.

    It was usually butter or dripping and tasted wonderful.
