    Lard is made of rendered and clarified pork fat, which means high cholesterol content, but no trans fatty acids.

    Shortening is a solid fat made from vegetable oils, such as soybean and cottonseed oil, which have been hydrogenated to create a solid. This process creates trans fatty acids which turns polyunsaturated fats into saturated fats. Vegetable shortening is virtually flavorless, and is used to make baked goods light and flaky. Crisco is a popular brand of vegetable shortening.

    Vegetable is not just a clinical term, it is a cooking term. So the qualifications as a vegetable are not very coherent, which is why we have cases like the tomato: people argue both ways.

    We favor vegetables but like fruits that we use in salad such as tomatoes and avocados.
