-- “Why are you more open to animal fats in your diet?”--
That was the question in our latest 2018 Animal Fats Ipsos US Survey, and we got some GREAT responses!
🗣️ “I've come to realize that health is more complicated and there are good fats that are important to keep in our diets.”
🗣️ “Animal fats are better for me than fake fats.”
🗣️ “I think animal fat is healthier than many plant-based fats.”
🗣️ “Less evidence to show they are harmful.”
🗣️ “In the past I thought animal fat would make me FAT but today I know that it will not...”
🗣️ “The lie about saturated fats and animal fats being the cause of heart disease has finally been exposed. They are healthier.”
🗣️ “I've come to realize that health is more complicated and there are good fats that are important to keep in our diets.”
Based on these results, consumers recognize that not all fats are created equal or play an identical role in a balanced diet!

Oklahoma State University Food Science major Charley Rayfield has received the first Ron Gustafson Scholarship, established by the North American Meat Institute #NAMI Scholarship Foundation in honor of Coast Packing Co. President and Chairman Ron Gustafson.

Rayfield, a food science major with an emphasis in food safety, hails from Bainbridge, Georgia. “The food safety option provides a unique approach to learning current food safety plans and regulations that directly impact the food industry,” Rayfield said, “and most importantly the safety and security of our food supply.”

Rayfield is one of eleven high-performing undergraduate students who received a combined total of $55,000 to pursue degrees in animal, meat and food science, and in culinary arts.

Each year, the NAMI Scholarship Foundation awards scholarships to eligible sophomores, juniors and seniors attending accredited four-year colleges or universities who are enrolled in an approved animal, meat or food science degree or culinary arts program.

We are living in the golden age of fat. As our understanding of fat has become more nuanced, we have let fat back in…
- The old standby #lard has returned to classic dishes such as the refried beans and tamales at your local Tex-Mex joint.
- British food has arguably improved with the return of suet (a type of beef fat) used in the dough to make pies, puddings and pastries (pasties).
- At steakhouses, the once beloved filet mignon, known to be tender though relatively lean, has been eclipsed in popularity by the much fattier rib-eye.
- It is rare that you will visit a French restaurant without seeing a rillette on menu, which may be the culmination of our newfound love of fat — it is basically meat cooked and simmered in liquid duck fat.
- Saturated fats are being celebrated for health benefits, culminating in the popular high-fat Keto diet.
- And, of course, butter and bacon are now unapologetically celebrated everywhere!
Fat is flavor, and fat is back! 😋

Why not celebrate long-lost kitchen staples such as tallow and lard (that’s rendered beef and pork fat, respectively) in your next seasonal dish? To get some recipe ideas using both of these traditional fats, visit our recipe board here: https://www.pinterest.com/coastpackingco/lard-tallow-recipes/

Some quicky suggestions:
- Try frying up your potatoes in natural #beeftallow instead of that man-made vegetable oil you’ve been using.
- Or to see #lard shine, swap it for the butter or shortening in your next pastry crust. You’ll get flaky, tender results (without a whiff of pork chop) ideal for an apple pie!

Butter makes a delicious pie crust, but do you know what makes an even more amazing pie crust? #Lard! People are finally returning to the idea that lard is truly one of the healthiest fats you can use for cooking. Read all about it here...
