Better Value for Increased Profits

Lard, beef tallow, and trans fat-free vegetable shortenings save you money — they’re shelf-stable, need no refrigeration, and don’t oxidize like their hydrogenated vegetable counterparts.

When we first tasted…

the Flavor King Beef Tallow product, we were all impressed with the flavor profile, the color and crisp texture of our French fries, and the minimal amount of oil that permeated the interior of the fry. While we made our decision based on taste, we were thrilled when healthy food bloggers raved about the health benefits of natural animal fat oil.
