Authentic Flavor, Sustainable Lifestyle.
Heritage fats bring traditional, authentic flavor that’s unparalleled in recipes and is a natural alternative to highly processed vegetable oils.
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.
Embracing Today’s Food Culture
Consumers are recognizing the health benefits of minimally-processed animal fats and shortenings both at restaurants and in their homes.
Ask Chef Greg
Have a question about using lard or beef tallow to extract maximum flavor from that venerable family recipe? Wondering about the nuances of baking and frying for your next holiday gathering? Want to use animal fats creatively while improvising a bit? Consider putting your question to Greg Hozinsky, Coast’s Corporate Chef, who’s been there and done that at some of Southern California’s finest restaurants. Drop us a note.
Traditional animal fats are on trend for flavor, wellness and sustainability
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.
Congrats to COAST from Chef Duff
