In celebration of Americas first national mammal, EPIC proudly presents a limited edition cooking oil coveted by early pioneers and indigenous cultures throughout the history of our country. As the national mammal of America, the bison symbolizes the timeless forces of power, resilience, and freedom embodied by our forefathers and still preserved in modern American culture.
Each jar of tallow begins with a grass fed bison, biologically engineered to enrich plains and prairie ecosystems. Like all properly managed ruminate animals, large herds of bison support one of our greatest opportunities to positively impact grasslands, enrich soil health, sequester carbon, and increase biodiversity in our world! As a result of how our bison are raised, this cooking oil has a healthy yellow hue consistently found in the fats of pastured animals. Unlike grain fed animals, grass fed ruminates have higher levels of beta-carotene (antioxidants + nutrients) and omega-3 fatty acids (more flavor).
Consistent with EPIC’s entire line of animal cooking oils, our new bison tallow is kettle cooked using traditional methods inspired by our grandparent’s generation. Each small batch is carefully rendered using low heat for long durations of time and before bottling goes through a triple filtration process to remove any solid particles or impurities. The final product has a rich and buttery texture, mouthwatering aroma, and delicious flavor. Due to the high levels of nourishing saturated fats found in bison tallow, our oil is innately stable under high temperatures. Traditional uses include pan searing meat, bison fat sweet potato fries, savory eggs, pemmican, and anything deep fried!
An extension of EPIC’s Whole Animal Project, our traditional cooking oil allows us to use more of the whole bison. This “nose to tail” commitment creates more nourishing food from these spectacular creatures and produces some of the most nourishing foods on the face of the planet! Most importantly, the Whole Animal Project allows EPIC to grow supply chains of grass fed bison by financially incentivizing ranchers to do the “right thing”.
