discover the lard difference

Lard is pure, natural goodness. That’s why your grandmother’s grandmother trusted lard in her kitchen well over a century ago. There’s just nothing better. Lard has more healthy qualities than other cooking fats and oils, and it also makes food taste great. It’s time to get back to basics with Armour lard.

Armour lard is one of the healthiest cooking fats you can buy. Lard has all the good stuff you want, like heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, which are said to lower LDL cholesterol. In fact, studies show lard is a better source of these fats than butter, coconut and corn oil.

Lard also has less of the stuff you don’t want, like saturated fat. Lard has less saturated fat than butter, and no trans fat like shortening. Armour lard is gluten free too.

Armour lard is fully hydrogenated and contains zero trans fats. Fully hydrogenated lard is different than partially hydrogenated oils, which are chemically altered and contain trans fatty acids. Trans fats are harmful because they lower HDL (good) cholesterol and raise LDL (bad) cholesterol levels, increasing the risk of coronary heart disease.

Almost everything we eat contains some saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fat. Finding the right balance is key to better health. In moderation lard is great, just like any food that’s too good to pass up.

Lard is rendered pig fat, but it does not impart a pork flavor. Unlike butter, some oils or even bacon grease, Armour lard does not add any flavor to the foods you make. Instead food tastes like it naturally should, and that tastes unbelievably great! Lard makes the best fried chicken, the flakiest pie crusts, the crispiest veggies, and the tastiest biscuits – it’s even great on toast.
