Whether you’re preparing for a zombie apocalypse or just the next major storm, American-canned Future Essentials Shortening Powder is a delicious and affordable must-have for your emergency prep pantry. More than mere survival fare, dehydrated shortening is a convenient time-saver in everyday cooking and can be used in any recipe that calls for conventional shortening (not recommended for deep fat frying). It imparts a delightful light, fluffy and flaky texture to baked goods and can be blended easily with other dry ingredients in baking recipes. Ideal for pan frying, simply sprinkle a small amount of powder into a pan, and watch as it quickly turns to liquid shortening as the pan heats. Each 12-oz. can is vacuum sealed and packed with oxygen absorber packets and food-grade desiccants, ensuring your powdered shortening stays safe and delicious for 25+ years when stored properly. Dehydration makes these handy cans incredibly lightweight; it’s easy to carry several days’ worth of Future Essentials grub in a standard backpack, making it perfect for bug-out bags or small hidden supply caches. Whether for emergency prep, outdoor rec or day-to-day cooking, Future Essentials Shortening Powder will make you wish the power would stay off forever! And with our unbeatable low prices, there’s no reason to wait to stock up. After all, you never know when the next crisis or disaster will strike, but with Future Essentials in your pantry you can rest easy knowing your belly won’t be empty and your palate won't be bored.
