Move over Pam. No not the gal, the cooking spray.

An Omaha man is cooking up something of his own.  Lindsey Theis explains.

A few decades ago Dennis Shuett was actually A food broker for ConAgra.  Full circle now food brokers are coming to him for his Cornhusker duck fat cooking spray.

“It’s got a high smoke point, it’s gluten-free. It’s non-GMO.”

How does it work?

“The deck that goes into a bag which is already inside the can the can is then filled with compressed clean air and that is what forces the product out when you actuate the can.”

As many aim for whole foods and paleo diets, this little can is flying off the shelves. Duck Fat spray inventor Dennis Schuett has sold hundreds of cans of his product since he introduced it in the fall. It sells for $12.99 a can online and $10 a can at Just Good Meat; other retailer’s prices may vary.  He helped cook some basic items: roasted veggies, chicken, and almonds.

“It’s like butter and the thing is it’s got 20% less saturated fat than better. And it’s high in Omega 3 and Omega 6 so it’s heart healthy, as far as fats go. Lindsey: you got to come cook at my house.”
