Why We Choose Certified Organic Grass Fed Tallow

We really mean certified. We understand the significance of utilizing premium fat sourced from healthy bovine. An animal's nutrients are contained in its fat; thus, if the animal consumes a harmful diet, those toxins are stored in its fat. That is why we exclusively use certified organic grass-finished tallow.

Everywhere we see the word "grass fed" being used loosely when 98% of cattle are grain fed. The math is not adding up. Organic cattle farmers represent around 3% of farms, and certified organic grass fed represent 1.6% of the 3% of cattle farms. ACFA stated that 98% of cattle are grain fed. The cattle are fed mostly cheap high calorie grains like corn, barley, and soy. 

"Research spanning three decades suggests that grass-based diets can significantly improve the fatty acid (FA) composition and antioxidant content of beef, albeit with variable impacts on overall palatability."

Certified organic tallow is an excellent choice for those who are looking for high-quality, grass-fed bovine tallow. There is a very small number of cattle farmers in the USA and Canada that are producing certified organic grass-fed beef suet for tallow. By choosing certified organic farms, you can be assured that the tallow you are purchasing is 100% grass-fed and has been produced with strict standards for quality and in an environmentally sustainable and humane way.

Certified organic farms make up only around 1.6% of farmers, but this certification ensures that the animals are fed a natural, grass-based diet, and are raised without the use of synthetic pesticides or fertilizers. This means that the tallow produced is free from harmful chemicals and additives, making it a healthier and safer option for our skincare products.

Certified grass-fed tallow offers a range of benefits over conventional tallow, grounded in its production methods, nutritional profile, and environmental impact. Here are ten bullet points highlighting why it is considered a superior choice:

  1. Better for the Environment: Grass-fed farming practices promote healthier soils, improved water retention, and increased biodiversity, making certified grass-fed tallow a more sustainable choice.
  2. No Antibiotics or Hormones: Grass-fed animals are typically raised without the use of antibiotics or growth hormones, which many consumers prefer for health and ethical reasons.
  3. Improved Animal Welfare: Grass-fed systems generally allow animals to roam freely and exhibit natural behaviors, leading to better animal welfare compared to conventional feedlot systems.
  4. Supports Small Farms: Purchasing certified grass-fed tallow often supports smaller, local farms that adhere to higher standards of quality and sustainability.
  5. Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA): Grass-fed tallow contains higher levels of CLA, a type of fat that studies suggest may help reduce body fat, strengthen the immune system, and potentially lower cancer risk.
  6. Lower Risk of Contaminants: Grass-fed animals have a lower risk of exposure to contaminants that can be present in feedlots, such as E. coli, leading to a safer end product.
  7. Promotes Heart Health: The healthier fat profile of grass-fed tallow, including lower saturated fats and higher omega-3 fatty acids, is considered better for heart health.
  8. Transparency and Trust: Certification ensures a level of transparency and trust regarding the product's origins and production methods, providing peace of mind for consumers about what they are purchasing and consuming.
