Details Ingredients & Additional Information

Lard - 100% Rendered Pork Fat

Lard can be obtained from any part of the pig as long as there is a high concentration of fatty tissue. The highest grade of lard, known as leaf lard, is obtained from the "flare" visceral fat deposit surrounding the kidneys and inside the loin.

Lard may be rendered by either of two processes:

In wet rendering, pig fat is boiled in water or steamed at a high temperature and the lard, which is insoluble in water, is skimmed off the surface of the mixture, or it is separated in an industrial centrifuge.
Wet-rendered lard has a lighter color and a high smoke point.

Dry: In dry rendering, the fat is exposed to high heat in a pan or oven without the presence of water (a process similar to frying bacon). Dry-rendered lard is somewhat more browned in color and has a lower smoke point. Rendered lard produces an unpleasant smell when mixed with oxygen

This product is Food Grade quality, but is sold with intent for it to be used in cosmetics, skin care, and soap making, not for food applications or use.

Cosmetic Uses: Lard is used for soap making to produce a softer bar with nicer conditioning properties.
