Halal Lamb Tallow
AM1NAH Halal Lamb Tallow is a delicious, stable and nutrient-dense natural and healthy cooking fat sourced from halal and tayyib, grass-fed, free-range and naturally raised lambs that are free-from the hormones and chemicals that are present amongst factory-farmed animals. Tallow is an excellent cooking fat that has a high smoke point (420 degrees) and is stable at high temperatures. Unlike many other oils and fats, it does not create the free radicals that is a concern with refined vegetable oils. As a saturated animal fat, tallow almost looks like a hybrid of coconut oil and butter, but with a dry, waxy texture.
Pure culinary tallow from grass fed lambs is biologically compatible with our bodies’ largest organ, our skin. It contains naturally occurring fat soluble vitamins such as A, D, K, and E. It also contains important fats such as conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) which has anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory properties and palmitoleic acid that has natural anti-microbial properties.
Traditional tallow, once an essential main ingredient in most homes, has been out of vogue in recent years as vegetable oils and spreads such as canola and sunflower oils replaced them in every day cooking. We are proud to be able to finally introduce our traditional rendered halal lamb tallow to the halal food market.
