    Spinach Quiche: Ingredients list Nutiva shortening, but Instructions (step 3) use butter. Do you have an editor?

    1. Nutiva Team Nutiva says:

      Hi Susan! Our apologies. This has been fixed.

  2. Iris Martin says:

    Hi. I have just been reading about the Nutiva shortening and have ordered some to try with my pie crust recipe. The recipe calls for shortening and I have always used Crisco but am going to give this a try. My question is:
    Do I use same amount Nutiva shortening as the Crisco No Fail Pie Crust, which calls for 1 cup shortening.
    And i usually make apple pies and freeze them and then bake from frozen during winter months, so would I be able to freeze if making pies using Nutiva shortening?
    Thank you.

    1. Nutiva Team Nutiva says:

      Hi, Iris! Yes, you should be able to swap the Nutiva shortening out for Crisco. Let us know if you try it! Enjoy:)

    Are any if your oils appropriate for frying chicken or battered vegetables?

    1. Nutiva Team Nutiva says:

      Hi Jean,
      The smoke point of Nutiva refined coconut oil is 450°F / 232 °C and may be the best for your needs.

    can I substitute the all purpose flour with coconut flour if so how much would I use?

    1. Nutiva Team Nutiva says:

      Hi, Adriana! No, that would not yield a 1-to-1 ratio. Using Coconut Flour is very specific, so unless we tried the recipe with all purpose flour vs. the Coconut Flour, we can not be certain how it would turn out. If you check out 13 Things to Know About Coconut Flour ( you could likely work backward from there. Let us know if you try it!
