Canadian premium lard™
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.

Pure fats are not attacked by microbiological species, since there must be a nutrient-containing aqueous phase in which the organism can grow. The moisture content of this product is below 0.1%, and at this moisture level product will not support any microbial growth.
Correct Handling and Storage
Care must be taken during storage and shipment to avoid damaging the flavor. BBSI recommends during shipping Canadian Premium Lard is kept below 90F (32C) and above 40F (5C). During warehouse or kitchen storage, BBSI recommends Canadian Premium Lard is kept between 65 and 85F (18-29C). Packaged animal fats will absorb off-flavors if stored near food items with strong odors. Unsaturated fatty acids will oxidize if kept in a warm place over a long period of time.
