    real fats like tallow and butter do indeed contain a small amount of trans fats but since they are a natural form, they do not have the same bad effects as using margarine and shortening. the little bit in your canned soup won't harm you...but you could learn how to make a terrific vegetable soup where you can control the ingredients. its easy.

    Beef tallow is a natural fat, instead of a highly processed additive. Not great for you in quantity, but not deadly in small does either.

    Beef tallow does contain a natural trans fat called Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA). While too much is certainly not healthy, it is less controversial than artificial or industrial trans fats.
