Trans fat free Crisco

Crisco - the gold standard in shortening - has announced that they will be removing trans fat from all of their products. They previously released a zero trans fat version of their shortening (with small enough amounts of trans fatty acids to have a "zero" on the label next to trans fat content) -- but now they are rolling this change to their other shortening products.

I've used the zero transfat version for baking and it was quite good! This is a marvelous step - kudos to the Smuckers company, who owns and manufactures the Crisco brand.
