A little off topic but not by much. What type of render fat is healthier? Pork, beef, bear,…ect? I have been rendering pork fat for years. If I tell some people that I cook with it they go off on how unhealthy it is and so on.
Bear and pork is closely related so I’d say either of thee two. Beef fat is hard fat and likely the least healthy for you.
Olive and Canola oils are the healthiest oils. Grapeseed is right up there. Butter is healthier than any of the margarines.
I grew up on foods cooked or fixed with lard, butter and cream/half-half along with drinking whole milk my entire life. I have every good cholesterol readings, no issues at all. No diabetes either. I’m checked for both every year. I’m almost 70 so I don’t think I’ll be changing anything at this juncture.
The key is knowing where you cholesterol counts are along with your blood sugar levels….every year without exception. Get an annual and be sure to have these checked each time. After that, listen to what your doctor says regarding those checks and follow any plan he and your self set up to keep you safe. The absolute last place I’d go for correcting any of these areas would be on a site like this where half of the yokels are self medicating because they read unproven junk on the internet. If you think you want to try something OTC or from the internet, make sure you run this past YOUR DOCTOR first….maybe save you some money or hospital time.
