Smilets: benefit and harm

The fact that today in stores sell under the label with the inscription “Butter” only looks similar to the original. It is also not good to wait for vegetable oil. But what to use as an alternative? An excellent substitute will be lard (melted lard). We will talk about the characteristics of this product today.


In the composition of lard emit at least 88% fatty saturated and unsaturated acids. The product is enriched with vitamins B, C, E, D, A. Such beneficial substances as phosphorus, potassium, sodium and magnesium are also found in fat. Finally, arachidonic acid is found in the lard. However, to prepare lard from pork fat, heat must be subjected to heat treatment, after which the amount of nutrients in the product decreases, but still some, such as vitamin B4 (choline), vitamin E and selenium, remain in the lard.

Smale: harm and contraindications

It would seem that after listing such an impressive list of the useful properties of Smaltz it is inappropriate to talk about its harm. However, it needs to be done. We must not forget that Smalcea contains a lot of unhealthy fats, therefore, they should not be abused (the maximum daily dose is 100 grams). The measure is also needed because lard is a high-calorie product (energy value - 898 kcal / 100 g). It is not recommended to indulge in Smaltsi people suffering from disorders of bile.
