According to experts, lard is a very valuable, tasty and healthy product. It contains a lot of vitamins, namely A and E and minerals such as potassium, phosphorus, copper, selenium, and zinc. Lard is also rich in omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which have a beneficial effect on the cardiovascular system and help normalize cholesterol levels. Lard can be used to make snacks and spreads, baked with spices, boiled, and pickled. It is added to minced meat for cutlets and sandwiches.
