Shortening is a popular term that refers to solid fat. This fat may be from a vegetable source, such as palm kernel and soybean or from an animal source, such as cow fat (butter) and pig fat (lard).

Shortening mainly refers to hydrogenated vegetable oils since the 20th century. These vegetable oils do not turn easily turn rancid and do not require refrigeration.

These are relatively cost effective and have a higher smoking point than lard or butter. With rapid advancements in food technology, shortening is available in a dry powdered form.

Increasing usage of this powder in baked goods is likely to propel the demand for shortening powder in the upcoming years. It is often rehydrated and used with water.

Moreover, it can be utilized for shallow frying of food items. It is absolutely hassle-free and has a much longer shelf-life, as compared to the conventional shortening. It works best in baking, providing a light, flakey, and fluffy texture to baked goods.

How is the Rising Demand for Baked Goods Driving the Shortening Powder Market Growth?

Rising consumption of ready-to-eat food items backed by the busy lifestyle of people is anticipated to bolster the shortening powder market growth in the evaluation period. Rising preference for ethnic food and the trend of Mexican and Thai food in hotels and restaurants are expected to surge the demand for bakery products across the globe.

Further, the ability of shortening powder to improve the palatability, impart softness to crumb structure, and enhance the texture of baked goods is another vital factor that is projected to aid growth. It can also result in the preparation of a uniform product without compromising its taste by easily blending with the ingredients.

Which Factors Are Expected to Hinder the Shortening Powder Market Growth?

As shortening powder is made by using fully hydrogenated oils, no trans fats are produced. However, recent research studies have revealed that these fats can promote fatty liver disease, enlargement of the fat cells, and inflammation. Some of the other studies showcased that interesterified fats if included in an individual’s daily diet can promote fat gain. Spurred by the aforementioned factors, the demand for shortening powder may get hampered in the forthcoming years.
