Calories in Lard

Lard is considered by many people to be one of the unhealthy fats or oils, but all oils good and bad will make you gain weight.  Lard is the white solid or semisolid rendered fat of a hog and is not to be confused with  hydrogenated shortening which is often found as an ingredient for snacks and cookies because it has a long shelf life. It is best to try and avoid this shorening.  Lard is making a comeback as it is slightly better for you than shortening.

To summarize calories in lard:
1 tablespoon of lard has 115 calories (1.25 in calorie cash™)
1 cup of lard has 1849 calories (18.50 in calorie cash™)  

For many people this (1 cups worth) is a whole days worth of calories!
