Why Lard

Discover the lard difference

Lard is pure, natural goodness. That’s why your grandmother’s grandmother trusted lard in her kitchen well over a century ago. There’s just nothing better. Lard has more healthy qualities than other cooking fats and oils, and it also makes food taste great. It’s time to get back to basics with Armour lard.

Comparison of dietary fats

Armour lard is fully hydrogenated and contains zero trans fats. Fully hydrogenated lard is different than partially hydrogenated oils, which are chemically altered and contain trans fatty acids. Trans fats are harmful because they lower HDL (good) cholesterol and raise LDL (bad) cholesterol levels, increasing the risk of coronary heart disease.

Almost everything we eat contains some saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fat. Finding the right balance is key to better health. In moderation lard is great, just like any food that’s too good to pass up.
