    Just an FYI folks, rendered beef fat is called tallow, pig fat is lard, dripping would be what you would have if you had a hunk of meat roasting on a rack in the oven and caught the dripping meat juices and fat in a tray below.
    It tends to be softer and more flavorsome than pure rendered fat, at least it does when I make it.

    In theory all good sources of fat, though I wouldn't buy it if it has been hydrogenated. To be honest I just wouldn't but lard, tallow or dripping as it is so easy to make your own and it tastes better :-)

    Yeah, we can get tubs of lard & dripping cheap here too. But as I said before, how it's been processed would concern me...
    And as dripping is the by product of roasting a big hunk of delicious meat, why not do it at home and then have both to enjoy

    I can't vouch for this being scientific fact, but it's similar to what I've read in other places: Lard: The New Health Food? | Food & Wine

    Our dripping from the fat the comes out of mutton flaps, pigs heads and rolled roasts.

    Any response? I see many versions of this is supermarket but I am not interested if it is processed, thanks

    living in the ice age: Britannia Beef Dripping

    It’s very cheap in our supermarket, my only concern is whether the fat is from grain fed cattle, if it is then is it still ok?
    I thought it’s the fat from non-organic meat that is bad for us.

    Any thoughts on this?

    Thanks
    The Britannia looks a bit white. AFAIK, beef dripping from real grass-fed animals is yellowish in colour, because of the carotenoids in it. Is grain-fed fat a problem and why? Depends who you ask, I guess. One take on it:

    Splendor From the Grass - Weston A Price Foundation

    Less intensively farmed is always better. AFAIK, Britain is better than the U.S. in that respect, and you can always buy organic, which should be cleaner but will cost more.


    Anyway, possible alternatives -- you are paying more for all these, though:

    Beef Dripping - 400g | Laverstoke Park Farm | Laverstoke Park Farm

    Devon Rose Beef | Offal & Fats | Devon Tender Beef Dripping

    Rother Valley Organics : Free Range Organic Produce Direct from the Farm


    I guess hardcore primals would render fat themselves at home.

    EDIT:

    Oh, I'd missed that: Devon Rose sells beef suet. Suet is the fat from round the kidneys and loins, and traditionally the most prized of all.

    I couldn't imagine buying 'drippings' from a store. Where the heck would it come from? Restaurant waste, like biodiesel grease?? Industrial food production assembly lines??

    After poking around a bit online, it seems that packaged dripping is more like tallow. Rendered, refined, etc. Not like homemade drippings from cooking meat. Maybe people just don't like the idea of buying tallow, so it's sold as homey old-fashioned drippings.
