Looking for an alternative to vegetable oils or dairy for cooking or baking? Why not try some true free range Poaka pork lard and add some real flavour back into your cooking. Pork Lard was the main source of cooking oil or fat throughout history, right up until 50 or 60 years ago before the introduction of cheap seed oils (otherwise known as “vegetable oils”, have you ever seen oil come out of a vegetable?). Cheap vegetable oils were heavily marketed and misinformation/smear campaigns resulted in Pork lard being labeled “unhealthy” in order to promote their cheap seed oils that were previously a waste product. Read this great article on lard which explains more and how to render your free range pork fat down. Draw your own conclusions! At Poaka we strive to provide the highest quality, local, sustainable, true free range organically farmed Pork products.
