Topic: Beef tallow


  
 Tallow News
For the purpose of the present opinion, tallow is defined as fats obtained by pressing or any extraction system down from ruminant tissues which are derived directly from discrete adipose tissue masses, from fat extracted from skeleton muscles, from mechanically recovered meat and from rendered animal waste, including bones.
Specifications of tallow as a commodity are typically set for titre (solidification temperature), free fatty acid level, peroxide value, colour, moisture content, insoluble impurities, unsaponifiable matter, etc. In general, the freshness of the raw material, the origin and the nature of the tissues will determine the end quality of the tallow or animal fat.
The tallow obtained from rendering a mixture of tissues and offals should be submitted to a process respecting conditions of 133ƒC during 20 minutes at 3 bar, or an equivalent process with demonstrated efficacy in terms of inactivating TSE agents.
