Canada’s best choice for baking needs
Lard is used in baking applications to produce light, flaky crusts. Made from Canadian sources in Ontario and Manitoba, Canadian Premium Lard™ produces the flakiness that the best chefs seek for their pie crusts and pastries. It blends easily with flour and when baked, the lard crystals melt away leaving pastry flakes. Canadian Premium Lard is fully refined and deodorized so the distinctive flavour and aroma of lard is removed and the taste of baked goods fully comes through. There are no trans-fats and the product is high in oleic acid (similar to olive oil). A small amount of citric acid is added to extend the shelf life.
