Is pork leaf fat vegan?

Pork leaf fat is an essential ingredient in many traditional cuisines. It is a type of pork fat that comes from the internal layer of the belly, also known as leaf fat. Pork leaf fat has a high smoke point and is commonly used for frying and roasting due to its rich flavor and ability to add moisture and tenderness to dishes. Its creamy texture and subtle taste are perfect for use in pastries, pie crusts, and other baked goods. Pork leaf fat is also an excellent source of oleic acid, a healthy monounsaturated fatty acid that can help reduce cholesterol levels.

Pork leaf fat is a non-vegan food ingredient.
