Is bacon fat vegan?

Bacon fat is a versatile ingredient that has been used in cooking for centuries. It is the rendered fat obtained from cooking bacon, which imparts a smoky and savory flavor to dishes. Bacon fat has a high smoke point, making it ideal for frying and sautéing, as it doesn't burn easily. This ingredient can be used in a variety of recipes, such as roasted vegetables, soups, stews, and even baked goods. However, due to its high saturated fat content, it should be used in moderation. Bacon fat adds richness and depth to any dish, making it a must-have ingredient in any kitchen.

Bacon fat is a non-vegan food ingredient.
