Our Wagyu Beef Tallow is handcrafted with traditionally raised beef fat from the highest quality wagyu cattle. Approximately 16 oz. The animals are raised in a stress free environment in the American Southwest with as much direct attention given as needed. Our ranching practices are humane and sustainable. The animals are never administered antibiotics, hormones or steroids. Wagyu beef has high amount of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids which are the healthier monounsaturated fats sought after in salmon. The ratio of HDL to LDL is the highest in wagyu compared to all other beef.
Wagyu beef tallow is rendered fat, cooked over low heat so that it separates from bits of muscle and connective tissue. This ensures that nothing but pure wagyu fat is left behind. This fat starts to melt at room temperature. Tallow is great for cooking at high temperatures because it has a very high smoke point. It also has an impressive shelf life and won’t go rancid like other cooking oils. It gives food a rich, delicious flavor and can be substituted for butter or oil in any recipe. In fact, our employees here at Beck & Bulow love to mix it into our coffee, bulletproof style.
Our bodies require fat in order to absorb vitamins A, D, & E. These vitamins are incredibly important for our bodies to function properly. Supporting everything from brain function, to immunity, to providing antioxidants, you want your body to receive an abundant supply of these nutrients. Tallow is a potent superfood, and one of the greatest health benefits of eating wagyu beef. Not so long ago, it was a kitchen staple. However, it’s been replaced over the years by unhealthy oils from seeds due to their cheap manufacturing costs. Large companies once considered them a waste product. They’re now sold to consumers as cooking oils with no consideration for long-term effects on health.
Tallow has a long history of being used for beauty. However, the advent of chemical and petroleum-based ingredients caused many of these uses to be temporarily forgotten. It’s a truly old-school secret ingredient for balms and ointments of all kinds. Thanks to a rise in the paleo diet and lifestyle, this amazing substance is finding growing popularity. Because it comes from the body of another mammal, our skin absorbs tallow better than any other oil. For this same reason, it does not clog pores as it is nearly identical to the oils in our own skin.
