Every delicious meal begins with Crisco
The emerging preference for delicious yet healthy food has pushed for ingredients that are both made from natural ingredients, without sacrificing the flavour and taste of your meals. Crisco, a well-loved pantry staple, has been around since 2011, providing home cooks and bakers with an alternative for their baking and cooking needs.
First introduced in 1911 as a shortening made entirely of vegetable oil, Crisco has now expanded into a different products including cooking oils, cooking spray and of course, the well-loved shortening under the Smuckers line-up of quality food products.
Crisco Shortening has already built a solid reputation as a go-to ingredient for home bakers. Initially sold as an alternative to lard which was a staple ingredient for the housewives of yesteryears, Crisco has been marketed as a healthier alternative.
Used to give a crumbly and crisp texture to baked goodies, Crisco Shortening has been a regular and must-have ingredient for pies, pastries, sweet breads, biscuits and cakes, among others through the years. Shortening also works well for quick sautéing, frying and stir-frying, while also enhancing the flavour of the meal.
In the Philippines, Crisco shortening comes in two variants. All-Vegetable Shortening also known as the original is a blue-canned classic used as base if you feel like being a rock star in the kitchen. Another variant, Butter Flavor All-Vegetable Shortening is definitely the best choice for dishes meant to have a silky and buttery taste.
Both variants serve as the perfect base, whether for hot meals or salads or baked goodies – with Crisco, buyers are assured of the top-most quality and nutrition.
Crisco is distributed by Sysu International, Inc. and is available in all supermarkets and groceries nationwide.
