Calling all fat experts,
I have a question about lamb fat. I get trimmings of grass-fed lamb fat for free from my butcher and I cook and eat them as they are (I also make tallow for cooking).
I feel great after eating it but I want to know how cooking affects the nutritional make-up of the fat.
1. Does heating oxidise the omega 3 or effect the MUFA or PUFA making the fat unhealthy?
2. Is it OK to eat 100g per day?
I'm eating it to increase my calorie intake as I can't eat too much coconut oil so I see lamb fat as just as good.
Thanks and have merry Paleo Christmas!

If the lamb is grassfed, I don't see why not.
