I’m southern. Not just southern but mountain, too.

This is the gamiest smelling leaf lard I’ve ever used and I’ve used HUNDREDS of pounds of leaf lard for culinary and chandlery purposes. Even the small no-name canisters from the local discount doesn’t smell this oxidized. I’ve never been so horrified of an animal product in my life. It arrived in an ice chest, still partially frozen. I un-taped one of the top (I buy in bulk… and then wholesale once I find the right product) containers of this leaf lard and got a faint odor but sometimes that is to be expected. Of course I failed to remember that odors are naturally suppressed by cold temperatures.
I immediately placed the entire order in a deep freezer.

I took the first one out later and after it thawed, I immediately smelled rancidity. Again, this is what I do for a living and have for very, very long time. My husband, who is a chef, confirmed that the odor was not just that of undeodorized fat/tallow, but actually that of spent cooking oil.

It was so bad I couldn’t use it at work or in my home kitchen. The melt point is even markedly lower than even the most cautious of averages for lard. This again is another clue that my order contained product past its shelf life.

Totally unusable and honestly I feel a bit cheated.
Not bothering w a refund because a company selling such poor quality obviously doesn’t have customer satisfaction at the top of its priority list.
And I definitely don’t want any more rancid product from this vendor.


And yes, I see the description reads “not deodorized”, that apparently is a cover for “old fat”. And don’t try the “organic” card, either.

If you’re a professional reading this, you’ll understand exactly all the points I’ve made. Be wary.

From USWM: Thank you for your valued feedback.  Rendering our never-stalled, pastured heritage pork fat is not a fine science and we will be the first to admit we are not perfect. Your report is an extremely rare one, and we can only assume you may have received an overly rendered batch.  We are standing by if you would like to contact one of our customer service team members regarding this product at 877-383-0051.

Pork leaf lard
This pork leaf lard (I ordered 5 tubs 2 months ago ), is very good.
It gives good flavor to scrambled eggs, meat & veggie stir fryes, & dishes I’ve made with it. It gave that extra umami
taste, & flavor that it did not have before without it. Buy it! I will order more as soon as I run out! US Wellness have  delicious pork leaf lard that is also unbeatable with their price. With the pandemic, you can’t get lard at Amazon & EBay with the same quality as US Wellness Meats! 👍🏼⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
