Fat has faced quite the defamation over the years. New research shows that fat is a vital part of a healthy and balanced lifestyle, and Fatworks is prepared to be its ultimate defender.
The benefits of cooking with grass-fed tallow, pasture-raised lard, and pasture-raised duck fat became apparent when the decades-long slander against fat ended.
The History of Fatworks Foods
As a culture, when we ate traditional fats - as opposed to soybean, canola, and vegetable oil - we were healthier, fitter, and our food tasted better. Fatworks was founded on a simple concept: Eat better, feel better.
The founders of Fatworks recognized that fat was not the villain that past nutritionists made it out to be. When they couldn’t find tallow or lard matched their standards, they set out to make their own. No one in the game was dedicated to making high quality, traditional animal fat, so Fatworks came along and changed that.
Fatwork Foods Company Mission
First and foremost, Fatwork Foods wants to shine a light on the benefits of cooking with traditional fat. Second, they want to provide quality, traditional fat sourced from farmers that share their ideals and commitment to sustainable, all-natural farming.
