    I bought some lard today and the ingredients say "Lard and Hydrogenated Lard" - should I toss it / return it?


    this is what I bought ... http://www.walmart.com/ip/Armour-Lard-16-oz/10449265


    Thanks!

    All supermarket lard is hydrogenated, and therefore contains trans fat. Do not eat it.


    To get real fresh rendered lard, try a Mexican supermarket if you have some in the area, or a butcher shop.

    Toss or return. Do not eat.

    Life on Earth may be punishing, but it includes an annual free trip around the sun!

    ehh... 'Walmart' raises a red flag for me-Im even afraid to eat their roasted chicken. There are far better sources of lard out there (the natural kind).

    Definitely don't use it.


    Here I can get unrendered leaf lard at a local winter farmer's market, so you may want to try something like that. Rendering it easy. Try eatwild.com for getting local good lard or renderable fat in your area.

    That's what I thought, hydrogenated = BAD!. I bought it at safeway (tried whole foods but didn't find any). I'll return it and look into the suggestions.


    Thanks!!

    Use it. I mean, will you eat a pound a day? It's better than the alternatives like the grain oils.


    Before PB I saw where Crisco has a solid shortening "No Transfats." And the TF's seem to be gone from margarines. At least on a "per serving" basis. So, I'm trying to understand whether hydrogenation automatically means transfat, or not. I'm thinking the latter.


    Lard is too valuable to no use. Even meat has small amounts of TF's.


    As I say over and over, it's not just the WHAT but the HOW MUCH that matters.

    I am actually very curious about this. What was the brand from whole foods? was it the 365 brand that whole foods makes themselves?

    There's a difference between naturally occuring transfats and industrially created hydrogenated transfats. The small amounts of TFs occuring in meat are not harmful for you unlike industrial ones.


    Do not use it. Go return what you have and get your money back.
