I'm only able to get my hands on Tyson's "All Natural" (whatever that means) chicken livers, both due to price and simple availability. Are chicken livers (regardless of their quality) any better or worse than other types of animal livers? Are... (more)

There is currently no FDA definition for the term "All Natural". It is a BS marketing ploy of the food industry.

I rather enjoy liver, but where I live it's still almost $5 a pound for the non-organic, non-pasteured beef liver, and $3 for chicken. I'd have to pay $12-$15 per pound for the good stuff.We only have a budget of about $200 per month for groceries... (more)

The risk (parasites) seems greater than the reward (undefined) in this situation.

nutrient density is the amount of nutrients you get per kg. Water would have a nutrient density of 0. You could argue that a product's water content is an inverse measure of nutrient density. Bone broth is extremely UN- "nutrient dense". So... (more)

i am in the uk and find oxtail, lamb hearts and sprats to be very cheap protein sources other than liver. lamb shoulder, brisket, beef neck, chicken feet and stewing meat are all cheap too. I don't really eat pork so can't comment on that.

They don't sit well with you mentally or physically? Because if it is a problem with taste, you can chop the liver/kidney up and mix into a meatloaf or burger patties. You won't be able to taste it.
