VERNON, CA, USA, July 13, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — In what becomes a (delicious) mid-summer ritual, the Healthy Fats Coalition (HFC) marks today, July 13, the fifth edition #NationalBeefTallowDay — a celebration of beef fat, an authentic and traditional ingredient that brings out the best in food. Like pure lard, duck fat, goose fat and other animal fats, beef tallow is enjoying a resurgence in American food culture, in restaurants and fast food operations.

#NationalBeefTallowDay, which shares the calendar with #NationalFrenchFryDay, is the brainchild of HFC, a group of like-minded organizations, businesses, and individuals who have developed an educational initiative dedicated to the proposition that healthy fats are an essential part of the foods we enjoy. more. HFC’s mission is simple: to affirm that animal fats like beef tallow deserve a central place in the American diet and in the popular imagination.

#NationalFrenchFryDay, doubled with #NationalBeefTallowDay, is a delicious opportunity for those who love deep-fried fries to go back to the future. As food writer Nancy Luna put it in Nation’s Restaurant News, “Are French fries the new fast food battleground?” Fries have long been a staple of quick-service menus. But recently, the humble fried potato is enjoying a renaissance, with chains serving fries with a twist. A certain burger chain has made a name for itself in part because of its beef suet fries. And as writer/social critic/foodie Malcolm Gladwell tweeted,


“A mainstay of traditional, authentic cooking, beef suet is trending for flavor and sustainability,” said Eric R. Gustafson, CEO of HFC founding member Coast Packing Company. “Artificial trans fats are out, and minimally processed animal fats like beef tallow — for superior frying and a host of other culinary applications — have made a comeback. The color, texture, and flavor that tallow imparts of beef make it a vastly superior alternative to heavily processed and industrially produced alternatives.More and more consumers are looking for foods made with integrity and respect for culinary traditions.Trans fat-free animal fats are a big part of the authenticity cooking, which is why we’re so excited to celebrate #NationalBeefTallowDay.

And for diners with a yen for suet fries, Coast Packing maintains its ultimate fries list (https://coastpacking.com/tallowfriesfatmap-2/), which debuted on National Beef Tallow Day 2020.
