Did you know?
Did you know that when cooking oils reach their smoke point, they may become toxic? Volatile and harmful chemical compounds are released, which have been linked to lung and bladder cancer. The lower the smoke point of the oil, the easier it is for toxicity to occur. Thankfully, lard has a high smoke point at around 190 degrees.
Sustainably produced in Tasmania.
A wonderful companion for stove-top sauteing veggies, deep-frying foods, searing meat and oven-based cooking due to its high smoke point of 190 degrees.
Keep in a cool, dry place & out of direct sunlight.
Ensure foreign foods and water don't contaminate the lard or spoilage may occur.
Take care if transitioning between fridge/freezer and room temperature as moisture can get trapped in the container & cause spoilage.
