Description Ingredients & Technical Information Formulation and Usage Information

Vegetable Shortening / Tallow Blend 40:60

This is a blend of Vegetable Shortening (40 percent) and Tallow (60 percent).

Tallow is rendered beef or other bovine fat, processed from suet. (Rendered fat obtained from pigs is known as lard.)

The tallow derived from beef is called stearin. Unlike suet, tallow can be stored for extended periods without the need for refrigeration to prevent decomposition, provided it is kept in an airtight container to prevent oxidation.

It is to make soap, candles, for cooking, and as a bird food. It can be used as a raw material for the production of biodiesel and other oleochemicals.

The Tallow in this product is pure tallow, no additives, and is great for soapmaking. It is well balanced in 43% Oleic Acid, 19% Stearic Acid and 24% Palmitic Acid.
