Okay, so I was concerned about this since this is the only shortening that I use and since I need to be soy free, Crisco is out! So I checked their website and below is the information on the site. Since it did not address the shorteing (or coconut oil question) I emailed them about it. I hope they get back to me soon. I will post their reply.


Hey, thanks!

Sorry I didn't get back to you guys sooner. I found the information on the website as well. It sounds like you're on top of it! :)

PS. I went to Spectrum's FAQ's page and searched "gluten." It was kind of confusing.

I got a computer generated email stating that they will get to my questions asap, but it could be up to a week! Hopefully it will be sooner than a week.

I don't use their oils, and the way they word the information on the website makes me think it is only the oils and not the shortening, but we shall see what they say...

Pink would be perfect! Where do you find beet juice? Is it in a big thing, and how much will color a cake? Thanks!

I usually buy canned beets and use a small amount of the liquid in the cake batter or icing. (I usually make yellow cakes and then color with icing instead.) I got the best color by buying fresh beets and juicing it myself, but it was a lot of work and mess to dig up my juicer just for that!

Lol, I see, well thank you! I think the canned would be easiest too! :)

I think I'm gonna make cupcakes this weekend and color the frosting with beet juice (the canned version lol). Thanks for the idea! :D
