Hi I am curious about trying other organ meats besides liver or kidney. These 2 I have tried and, frankly, don't sit well with me. I'm curious for example does stomach taste like liver? What about intestines or tongue? These would be... (more)

Not sure what the nutritional differences would be, but a lot of people take "liver supplements" by chopping up a beef liver into tiny pieces (about as big as a pill/tablet), freezing them, and then swallowing a couple of 'em whole. I'm not quite... (more)

What was the reasons organs became unpopular? Liver makes sense. What about the others? Especially in the US, when and why did we switch exclusively to consuming only muscle meats?

Keep in mind, the order of which is consumed would be in line with the greater amount of energy gained though consumption with the least expended through the process. It would depend on which animal is eating which.
