So, what is tierfett?

Tierfett is a German term that translates to "animal fat" in English. It is a common ingredient used in cooking, baking, and food processing. Tierfett can be sourced from various animals, such as cows, pigs, and chickens. It is valued for its unique flavor profile and ability to enhance the taste of dishes. In addition to being used in food preparation, tierfett is also used in skincare products due to its moisturizing properties. However, consuming excessive amounts of tierfett has been linked to health concerns, such as cardiovascular disease, so it should be consumed in moderation.
