I have often wondered this.

My understanding (correct me if I'm wrong) is that tallow is rendered from suet, as is lard. So it's the process that's different rather than what the end product is. Tallow from beef and lard from pork (or that's the way we use it in the UK).

Dripping is just that, drippings from a roast or animal carcass.

What I am unsure of is the dripping that we can buy in shops or butchers in the UK - I'm unsure as to whether it's dripping or tallow (even though it's called dripping).

Either way, beef dripping is a delicious fat to cook with :-) (Especially if it's chips from the chippy ;-)

I'm just wondering if beef dripping from the butchers is a good source of saturated fat? When I make my own it's yellow but the dripping is snow white. I've heard the yellow is because the cows are grass fed. Any thoughts. I'd much rather if this beef dripping is healthy so that I don't have to be bothered making my own. Thanks.

First answer is right. It is the dripping from roastd beef. I used to love it best on toast with salt and pepper. I use it as a cooking oil now the bread is gone. Good dripping is as good, of not better than goose or duck fat for cooking.
