After years of requests, US Wellness Meats finally found a source of quality, rendered Duck Fat! Duck Fat is fabulous for cooking. Include Duck fat as a kitchen staple item and find out why French chefs use it religiously.
Duck fat is an excellent cooking fat for high heat applications as it has a high smoke point. Its subtle flavor and smooth texture makes it appealing for a variety of cooking methods including: frying, baking, roasting, searing, stir fry, or even salad dressing. Use duck fat for roasting root vegetables or frying potatoes, and try some duck fat pop corn for a tasty treat!
Not only does duck fat make any kitchen creation taste better, but it's ratio of approximately 51% monounsaturated fat, with 36% saturated fat and 14% polyunsaturated fat helps make it stable during cooking. The healthy balance of fats along with it's suitability for high heat cooking makes it ideal for any kitchen. Along with butter, Duck Fat is one of the most frequently used cooking fats in France where gourmet cuisine is a form of art. The French also enjoy a much lower rate of heart disease than the U.S. whose most common cooking fat is vegetable oil.
