Sourced from U.S Organic family farms. (No imported fat here), this is most prized lard available. Organic means you can be guaranteed that this has been certified to have no GMO's pesticides, added hormones or antibiotics. Rendered from the prized pasture raised "leaf" (internal fat) making it less "porky" tasting than our other lard offering which comes from back fat primarily. Both have their uses but as there is no meat muscle in the leaf it has a milder pork flavor and slightly higher saturated fat making it the perfect lard when you need a delicate, light and "clean" taste. Bakers have cherished Leaf Lard because it creates the best crusts and cakes and cookies while not imparting any flavor of its own. The perfect fat for bakers and keto and paleo fat connoisseurs and the gourmet baker's secret weapon.
