A traditional Québec frying fat
Special Blend is a lard-based frying fat combined with a small amount of beef tallow. As with our other pork products, it is formulated from deodorized Canadian lard making it suitable for both baking and deep frying. Antioxidants and antifoam agents are added to extend the frying life. This product is popular in Québec where it complements traditional Québécois cuisine.
