    Veg Oil vs Conventional Lard

    Primal Fuel
    Hi.

    I got conventional lard from the supermarket today for my fried foods. It's ingredients are: "hydrogenated sea oils, mixed animal fats, bht". Fried some pork filet (not sure if that's the name in english). It was tastier. Anyway, read on here that conventional lards are not the optimal choice, so compared to veg oil, which one is preferable?

    I would chuck it. Hydrogenated fat = trans fat which is very bad for you. Buy some real animal fat (or get it free from a butcher) and render your own frying oil.

    Sounds good. Anyway, I have to say tho that after my meal I didn't feel as heavy as I used to feel after eating foods fried witch veg oil.

    Hunt yourself down some grass fed lard from a local farmer... and by hunt, I don't mean Grok-style.

    I think the lard you bought is not lard. Real Lard is miles better than vegetable oil, but I think what you have is akin to margarine.....toss it!

    Good catch. I have never bought lard from the store so I didn't pay much attention to the ingredient list. Still, compared to canola oil etc., I'd still say Lard.

    I may regret asking, but what the hell are "sea oils"?

    Ok. Today I found "edible fat" at the store. Its ingredients are: "bovine fat, flavor identical to natural and coloring betacarotene".

    I fried some goose meat today with it and it feels like more, well, real fat.

    It says that it contains trans fats tho, 4 grams per 100 grams. Anyway, the conventiional (non) lard contains 25g per 100g.

    Seems better than both veg oil and modified lard for my fried foods. What do you say?

    I read betacatotene is A vitmin and healthy, so it looks like the right choice.
