Draculard

suck out fat, then use it for fry ups

Many people get liposuction and this creates the continuous supply of fat required to satisfy the needs of those who simply must have their food fried in human fat. It's a niche market, but I'm certain it exists.

Once processed in exactly the same way as that of cow fat to guarantee its purity, I can see no reason not to market Draculard as a perfectly good way of frying a batch of chips or preparing an English or an Irish breakfast.

Some people might just want it as a novelty item, never to be used (me for example) and I'm working on the label right now.

       I can see police agencies being in favour of this, they could keep tabs on sales as a means of profiling potential Hannibal's, you might find the bulk of your (niche) sales where going through the prison service though, most of those that won't mind being identified by their credit card activity are probably already behind bars (which will be why they won't mind).   

       Shades of soylent green?

       People who are serious about eating high-animal-fat diets will insist that the animals are raised on a natural diet without the use of medications etc. So I would suggest they may complain for this reason, rather than the particular species being farmed and/or harvested from.   

       Though I have to say ethical vegetarians should be fine with it seeing as it was given with consent and without slaughter or inhumane treatment.

       Oh, but some could be arranged, shirley ? At the very least, a webcam would ensure that the fatties were suitably humiliated …

       I just did some research on Lard and it turns out to be pig fat in its various guises.
xenzag, Jul 07 2014
  

       The mind reels. You did research on lard. YOU DID RESEARCH ON LARD??? oh my God.

       Lardy, lardy.

       I'm totally for this. I doubt the spread of disease would be a big problem because the fat has to get quite hot to cook anything, and animal fats for cooking (tallow, lard, etc) are cooked at a low temperature (a process called "rendering") which turns the raw fat into fully melted liquid fat and little crispy bits called "cracklins." If anything, I'd be happy to see this kind of recycling destigmatized because it could be a good source of nutrients for someone who needs to gain weight or something.
Kumawktopus, Jul 11 2014
  

       Regarding diseases, I think the primary concern would be the ones transmitted by prions. Low temperature rendering won't eliminate prions. I assume the high temperatures and pressures need to destroy prions might have a negative effect on the quality of the Draculard. I seem to remember that the highest risk is in consuming brain tissue, so fat might not be that bad, but people will always worry.
scad mientist, Jul 11 2014
  

       The whole prion field is a bit spooky and suspect (this reconfigured protein is supposedly resistant to almost all protein-destroying agents, and is meant to have various hereditable strains).
MaxwellBuchanan, Jul 11 2014
  

       Damn...I just came back from a Wikipedia stroll down prion lane, and all the linked diseases that they had.   

       Wish I was smarter - I would like to research these things further. But the internet allows me to play at being smart on television (cultural reference, I'll see if I can locate the link).
normzone, Jul 11 2014
  

       Something to prion your mind.
xenzag, Jul 11 2014
  

       //Wish I was smarter - I would like to research these things further.//   

       Trust me, you don't need to be immensely smart to get ahead in the prion field.
