Description: Fat makes food delicious! Tallow is pure rendered beef fat, free from impurities, that can be used in cooking or apothecary. Our pure beef tallow is sourced from local American ranchers. Our goal is to use every part of the animal as a way to honor its life and the bountiful harvest it brings us. Let us waste less and live sustainably, and feed our bodies the nutrients it needs. God Bless.
Tallow from kidney fat aka leaf fat is superior to tallow from trim fat for a few reasons...
- First, kidney fat is far more nutrient dense than trim fat. It has higher levels of cancer fighting CLA’s (conjugated linoleic acid), oleic, palmitic, and stearic acids, omega 3 fatty acids, and bio available vitamins A, D, E, and K. This makes tallow from leaf fat more nutrient dense than tallow from trim fat.
- Second, kidney fat is more suited for the making of cosmetics compared to trim fat tallow because it is non-greasy and more firm.
- Third, tallow from kidney fat does not usually have much of a scent or taste, whereas tallow from trim fat will have more savory flavors and a beefy aroma.
Storage: Keep at room temperature in a sealed container for up to a year. After opening, refrigerate and use within three months.
Uses: Tallow is a versatile fat that can be used for cooking, leather conditioning, making soap or candles, and more!
