Mangalitza Lard 500g

Mangalitza lard has an unmistakable aroma, delightfully creamy texture and harmonic flavour.

This versatile lard is spreadable even at room temperature, perfect for giving your sandwiches or toast an infusion of flavour. Its high smoke point also makes it a great alternative to vegetable oils for cooking and frying, providing your dishes with added depth and a rich, savoury pork character.

Mangalitza lard is naturally rich in Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids as well as a range of antioxidants, minerals and vitamins. Mangalitza is also naturally low in cholesterol, making it a healthy choice with potential heart-protective properties.

Received 2* at the 2020 Great Taste Award.

Comments from the Great Taste Judges:

"Pure and fresh with a rich and creamy appearance. Sweet, soft, melting porkiness balanced with rich meaty, juicy savouriness, deeply satisfying and with great length and depth of flavour, but cleverly left a freshness on the palate. The texture was velvety and smooth with a pure and clean finish. This is an ingredient that should be present in all kitchens. It would make the most delicious roast potatoes and give depth and rich flavour to any soup or casserole base."
