Reviews For Pure Lard

Based on 21 Reviews

Works Great

After recently changing to a predominantly Paleo diet, I started using this pure lard, along with ghee, duck fat, and beef tallow in my cooking. I like using this lard because it does not have a strong flavor. It leaves my food tasting pure and clean so I taste whatever I have prepared without added flavor from the cooking fat.

I recommend using this pure lard for your cooking.

- Nancy

Love the Lard!

Having been down the path of rendering my own lard, I was overjoyed to find lard from pasture-raised pigs in a jar that I could buy! It's very good and a good price. Really nice flavor!

Excited About Fat

Out of all the things in my first Thrive box, Fatworks' Pure Lard was the item I was most excited to see. My husband and I began a Whole30 together this month and we needed more fat options that ghee and olive oil, and for my hungry man the idea of lard from pastured pigs got him really excited about the new foods we were trying on Whole30. We fried plantains, use it for hash browns, eggs, and I have even sauteed kale in it. It tastes awesome in everything we have used it for. So glad to have it as an option through Thrive, especially for our first time using the product.

Love this Lard

Good flavor. Great quality. A bit spendy. Will continue to add it to my selections of fats.

- Laura

Adds flour to any dish, except ice cream!

Of course I have never tried it with ice cream, but does lend a richness to any savoury dish. I would, however, prefer the duckfat...PLEASE GET THAT IN!

- Yvette


Great flavor to any cooking. It's our favorite fat to cook with. Please, get the fatworks duck fat!

- Vicki

yes and more yes!

Clearly high quality and fresh. Haven't experimented with re-using this because I don't use much at a time - just enough to lubricate and flavor whatever I'm making. Just a tablespoon usually does the trick for a typical pan of food, so lasts a while.

- Sara


This is a great addition to any meat or vegetable dish. Very flavorful. The added fat also helps with satiety

- Chelsie

A Staple

We use Fatworks lard for cooking meats at high heat because it won't burn like vegetable oils do. The flavor is very mild and complementary to beef and pork and is also great for frying. Highly recommend what has become a staple in our kitchen.

- Helena


This was my first time cooking with lard and I am hooked! Super easy to use and adds amazing flavor to any kind of food. The best for frying and high heat.

- V.F.


This is a great, quality product. It is so smooth-it's great for cooking...or eating ;) And it's at a great price!

- Erin


Hands down best cooking fat

- George

Happy Customer

I was excited to finally try the Lard and I also purchased the tallow. I think the lard tastes better than the tallow. I really like how little you need of the lard to go a long way in the pan. Also works real well at high heat.
