With a clean, neutral taste, AAK shortenings are easy to incorporate, reduce mixing times and are suitable for high speed production processes. They also extend the shelf life and improve eating quality. They are perfect for pastry, cakes, biscuits and cookie dough.

Our high quality, general purpose pastry shortening is aerated to give smooth consistency, and repeatable results in shortcrust pastry. It can also be used as dough fat in laminated pastry. 

AAK shortenings are the ideal choice too for the production of light, soft eating sponges and fermented goods. They add volume, stabilise cake batter and, when used in fondant icing, can prevent cracking or sticking.
