Today I’m going to cover lard vs. vegetable oil. Lard is pig fat. Tallow is beef or lamb fat. We’re talking about the type of lard or tallow that is organic and from pastured and grass-fed animals. 

Some people have a fixed idea that saturated fats, especially lard, equals clogged arteries. Before Crisco was invented, everyone cooked with lard or tallow, and it wasn’t considered bad. After Crisco (which is trans fat) was invented, it was marketed as a healthier substitute to lard and tallow (which are saturated fats). However, trans fats were banned by the FDA in 2015. 

Saturated fats:
• Lard
• Tallow
• Butter 
• Coconut oil 

* Saturated fats are very stable and cause less oxidation and free radical damage. They are also meant to be used at higher temperatures. 

Unsaturated fats:
• Corn oil 
• Soy oil 
• Canola oil 
• Cottonseed oil

* Unsaturated fats are very unstable, especially when heated. They can cause inflammation, insulin resistance, oxidation, and free radical damage. 

In summary, I believe lard and tallow are much healthier than vegetable oils.
