What is Grass Fed Beef Tallow?
Paleovalley 100% Grass Fed Beef Tallow is an ancestral cooking fat with a high smoke point, making it the ideal choice for frying, sautéing, and roasting. Plus, it's a delicious substitute for butter and other cooking oils. Grass Fed Beef Tallow is essentially the wonderful beef fat that's carefully extracted from the animal. Just as lard is to pigs, Tallow is to cows. Cows have these special areas called "suet," which are practically pure fat, serving as a protective layer for their kidneys and other organs. You'll notice that it's primarily pure, snowy-white, grass-fed fat. This precious suet is placed in a kettle, and through a gentle, low-heat steam-rendering process, we ensure that the oil remains unscathed and untainted by burning. Afterward, we meticulously drain and finely filter it. No need for bleaching, spinning, vacuuming, or any alterations. All we need is grass-fed suet, dedication, a touch of heat, and the force of gravity. Now, here's the exciting part - Grass Fed Beef Tallow serves as both a cooking oil and a saturated fat.
Next up, let's talk storage. Grass Fed Beef Tallow is naturally shelf-stable. If you store it in a cool, dry place, it can stand the test of time, lasting for years.
Grass Fed Beef Tallow is incredibly durable and boasts a high smoke point in the 400s. What's the magic of this? It's reusable! So, for those of you who may have hesitated due to the price point, consider this - Grass Fed Beef Tallow can withstand multiple rounds of frying without undergoing the undesirable oxidation that vegetable oil is prone to. When it comes to what makes an oil healthy, avoiding oxidation is key. Depending on your cooking style and what you're frying, you can get countless uses out of it.
