Lard is a traditional Ukrainian product that is often associated with bad habits and overweight. However, recent research by scientists at the Dresden Institute of Health has shown that lard can be good for health and even help you lose weight.

Lard is not a harmful product, as many people believe. In fact, it can be good for your health and even help you lose weight. However, it is important to consume lard in reasonable amounts and in the right form, RadioTrek writes.

Useful properties of lard

Fresh lard contains valuable fatty acids - linoleic and arachidonic. These fatty acids are essential for the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system. They protect neurons from degenerative processes, promote good health and strengthen the immune system.

In addition, lard contains choline, a substance that neutralizes the negative effects of cholesterol on the body. The cholesterol contained in lard is within normal limits.

Lard does not contribute to weight gain

Experts say that obesity is most often caused by an excess of carbohydrates in the diet, not fats. Eating lard contributes to a prolonged feeling of satiety, which can be useful for those who want to lose weight.

How to eat lard properly

For lard to do more good than harm, it should not be fried. It is better to eat it raw or steamed. You can also eat lard as part of various dishes, such as salads, soups, or borscht.

Remember that salted bacon can be even more delicious if you resort to just one secret. Then the skin will be soft, and the lard itself will be very appetizing and tasty.
