“When you cook with lard, you get the bonus of adding extra vitamin D to your diet, something no other cooking oil (except butter) can boast. “You basically have a vitamin D supplement built into your fat,” says Lily Nichols, RDN, CDE, CLT. A tablespoon of lard from a pasture-raised pig has about 1,000 IU of vitamin D, according to Nichols. By comparison, 1 tablespoon of butter has 9 IU of vitamin D, while the same amount of olive oil has none. In fact, lard is one of the highest dietary sources of vitamin D—a nutrient in which about 42% of U.S. adults are deficient.”
A pack of Laurica Farm lard lasts at least as long as 1L of olive oil in our kitchen. We render our fat in small batches so if you see we are out of stock, ordering will prompt us to make a fresh batch just for you! Each pack is approx 0.28kg / 0.65lbs.
Add to an existing order or pick up from the farm by appointment.
