Suet vs other fatty parts
« on: July 08, 2013, 03:20:39 pm »
I am wondering what the difference is between suet and the fat that is around the heart and the other fat you can buy from cows that comes from under the skin. The fat located under the skin i find so very soft and full of other things that makes me more tiered after eating while suet or fat from the heart makes me feel super. The problem is that suet is so hard to get any big deliveries of since each animal ha so little of it. Also are there any type of fat from the pig that has lots so saturated fat and is hard? Might be easier to get lots of pigs fat from where i am.

I feel the opposite way - I love beef fat, but suet is repulsing.

Here's a wikipedia on suet - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suet

Suet has more protein, more total fat, and more saturated fat. Suet also seems to have less vitamins and minerals overall. Beef fat has more unsaturated fats, and a better omega 3:6 ratio. While suet has much less unsaturated fats, more saturated fat, and a worse (though not bad) 3:6 ratio. Keep in mind this was possibly done on grain fed meat (although the omega 3:6 ratio makes me think otherwise).

Many prefer back fat because it is softer.
I have no preference.  My body handles suet, back fat, or ribs fat equally well.

Every time I have tried suet it is like eating candle wax. I can feel the pieces moving through my intestines, no digestion at all. Makes for slightly painful bowel movements. I'm guessing my bile has no effect on it.

I have suet right now and notice pieces in my bowels if I don't chew it completely. I prefer the other softer fat. So far, fat sitting on the side of lamb chops or the marbling in a lamb steak is my favorite. Nice and buttery and soft.
