Beef Tallow has been used in a lot of different ways. However, the safest and best way to use beef tallow is by using it for cooking. Due to the obesity obsession, beef tallow is either not normally heard of or is perceived as an unhealthy fat because of how it comes from an animal. Nevertheless, many organization would state that beef tallow is a much better option in getting your nutritional fats. That’s why there’s Beef Tallow Day, a day dedicated to changing that.

History of Beef Tallow Day

Beef Tallow Day began its roots back in 2017 and is aimed to celebrate its tradition as a healthy animal fat and its resurgence into American cuisine and food culture. Similar to Lard Day, Beef Tallow Day was founded by the Healthy Fats Coalition, which formed this holiday to educate people about what the difference is between unhealthy fats and healthy fats. The coalition is made up of multiple organizations and companies that sponsor the use of healthy fats. As an education-focused enterprise, Healthy Fats Coalition markets the healthy benefits of beef tallow alongside lard to show how transferring unhealthy trans fats to healthy, unprocessed fats can make food taste better and feel better overall.

Beef Tallow is specifically a fat that comes from beef and it is said to significantly taste better and add more dimension to fried foods. Companies such as the Coast Packing Company, one of the number one fat shortening manufacturers on the Western Coast, advocate for the use of beef tallow as an easy and yummier substitute. This day was specifically paired National French Fry Day to help people taste the difference when frying with fat instead of canola or vegetable oil. Beef tallow overall has a gamier flavor and a more robust palette, which can enhance any meal and contains monounsaturated fats which can lead to a healthier heart. Because of these benefits, this day aims to change the way people think about fats and encourages people to try beef tallow more often.
