This post is just to update this thread about getting a sample of shortening powder from the Food Source, Inc. I had posted last week I had emailed Adam again to see if he was going to send me a sample of the shortening powder to try and I hadn’t received a reply. I called the Food Source, Inc. this morning and Sue apologized for Adam not sending me the sample. I had asked Adam in my last email about getting a sample of baker’s grade buttermilk to, but he never answered me. I talked to Sue about what kind of buttermilk powders they carried. She said they have Buttermilk Shortening Powder Item Number: 1001402 and sent me the Specification sheet. She told me about Buttermilk-Rich powder 1001100 and sent me the Specification Sheet for it. I asked Sue if GM uses their products in mixes and Sue said yes, GM did. Sue said the Food Source, Inc. is the beginning of the chain that supplies mixed ingredients to GM. Sue said she would get me samples out today of all three products, in 1lb. bags. In the return email Sue said if I had any other questions to just contact her. I had the pdf. document for the specs of the 2 buttermilk products. I also asked Sue if they carried dextrose and she said no they didn’t carry dextrose, , but said they do carry whole egg powder. Sue said the shortening powder and the buttermilk powders will be sent from our dairy today and the whole egg powder will be shipped from their office today.
