    Actual omega 6:3 ratio of grass-fed beef tallow?

    Primal Fuel
    US Wellness says that their grass-fed beef tallow has an omega 6:3 ration similar to fish (which, considering my wild Alaskan salmon has an omega 6:3 ratio of about 1:12, sends by BS meter well into the red zone). Does anyone have an idea of what the ratio actually is? I know grain fed tallow has around a 5:1 ratio, which isn't terrible, but I might go with mutton tallow, which is about 2:1, if the ratio isn't too great.

    I'm trying to up my calories a bit, and I'm thinking about adding a tablespoon or two of this stuff to a smoothie I make everyday. I'm afraid the taste of lamb tallow might taint my drink, but I'm a bit more concerned about keeping my 6:3 ratio in check right now.

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    Wondering the same thing, hopefully someone has some info! A buddy referred me to US Wellness but I then saw you have to have a $75 minimum purchase...
    Thanks.

    Do realize that beef fat is also a very poor source of both Omega 6 and Omega 3. Eating a little fish easily displaces any polyunsaturated acid imbalance that beef could cause.
