Does anyone have a link to nutrition data for gristle(a.k.a animal connective tissue)? I have searched the net and sites have only said to 'trim off the fat'---not very useful advice. I hope the PALEOS can enlighten me on this issue...

A variable amount of the gristle is indigestible, so I don't think you'll find solid data on this. My question to you is: do you really eat enough gristle to worry about a detailed analysis?
There was a previous thread on gristle (or "grizzle" acc. to David Csonka), but it didn't answer your particular question. The consensus was that it's ok for either you or your dog to eat gristle.
