    Question Bacon fat from non organic bacon?

    Hello to everyone here at this amazing information packed primal forum

    I have a question about the quality of the fat we eat. I live in Denmark and here are not so many organic bacon alternatives so our breakfast is usually made up of organic eggs scrambled in the bacon fat from non organic bacon. I would like to hear your opinion on this.
    I was thinking that it might be better to not use that fat and swap it with coconut oil in the same quantities instead?
    I'm worried that there's too much bad stuff from antibiotics in that fat.

    Thanks!

    I wouldn't say better at all, just different. They're both good. I just figured you'd be likelier to find good quality duck fat. If you enjoy animal fat with your eggs, it's pretty yummy. If you like the coconut taste, that's tasty, too!

    Thank you for your reply
    Regarding my initial question about the non organic fat, do you agree that there's a problem with that? It wasn't clear to me from your answer :-)

    My understanding is that most toxins are stored in the fat, which is why meat with conventional fat is to be avoided.

    Yes, I would definitely avoid any fat that is not from good quality animals!

    This always bugs me: what toxins? I think the ecological/environmental argument to eat organic/grassfed is far more convincing than the health argument. Eat your bacon fat!

    Organic-vs-non organic porkfat. Most "organic" meat is still grainfed,just using organic grains. Same with so called "organic chickens" they are simply battery chickens fed organic feed. If it isn't pastured there is not any real difference and organic in meat is a waste of money. Eat your bacon fat and also eat high omega 3 food to balance out the high o6 in pork. Look for pastured meat and wild caught fish.
