Tallow (Beef Lard)
Tallow is a rendered form of beef or mutton fat, primarily made up of triglycerides.
Tallow is both nutrient and energy-dense. A single tablespoon of tallow contains 110+ calories and 12+ grams of fat. Tallow is free of carbohydrates, making it great for your keto, low-carb, or carnivore diet.
Tallow is also generally high in fat-soluble vitamins, including vitamins A, D, E, K2, and others.
Beef tallow is rendered fat from a cow. To render fat, you melt it and heat at a low temperature. Eventually, all the proteins solidify and the water evaporates. The solids are filtered from the fat, and once cooled, you’re left with pure fat.
Beef tallow is the most common type of tallow. Even low-quality beef tallow may be more nutritious than other animal types, since cows can convert the unhealthy fats they eat into healthier forms of energy.
The very healthiest beef tallow comes from grass-fed cattle. Grass-fed tallow is higher in healthy saturated fats, omega 3’s, stearic acid, and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) than ‘regular’ tallow.
