Edible Beef Tallow

Food Ingredients

Edible Beef Tallow

Description

Edible beef tallow is a rendered form of beef fat. It is a very versatile cooking fat that is often used for its high smoke point and rich flavour – making it very desirable for a wide range of culinary applications.
The nutritional content of tallow depends on the source of the beef. Grass-fed cattle produce tallow with a more favourable fatty acid profile and higher levels of vitamins.

Our edible Beef Tallow is sourced from 100% New Zealand export quality beef bones that are grass-fed, hormone free, antibiotic free and GMO free.

Composition

Halal certified, 100% New Zealand export quality beef fat.

Extraction Process

Tallow (fat) is extracted by heating the bones in water. The heat melts the fat and, when the fat becomes liquid, it is released from the bone and floats to the top of the cooking water. After the cooking step, the tallow is filtered and separated from the water by using a centrifuge. Any residual moisture in the tallow is then removed by vacuum evaporation to ensure the product is as pure as possible.

Uses / Benefits

Beef tallow is ideal for frying, sautéing or roasting. It can be used in baking, flavouring ingredients or preserving foods. It is valued for its culinary uses and has a long shelf life and preservation. Unlike many vegetable oils, tallow is less prone to rancidity due to its saturated fat content.
