Are Organ Meats Good for You?

Story at-a-glance -

  • While by today’s standards some may find eating organ meats to be an unsavory proposition, most are more nutrient dense than your average pork chop or T-bone, containing high amounts of protein, minerals and fat-soluble vitamins
  • Some believe organ meats are unhealthy as they’re the filters for toxins in the animals they came from, but while they may be the filters, they’re not the storehouses; organs filter toxins and remove them
  • Eating organ meat rather than meat from muscles may decrease your intake of an amino acid known as methionine and, as a consequence, may also improve metabolic health and help you live longer
  • Concerns regarding eating too much organ meat include the potential harm from its high iron content, which can build up in your blood, and cooking it at excessively high temperatures, which can form cancer-causing compounds
  • Cooking at lower temperatures, marinating in olive oil or lemon juice and cutting away charred bits are some of the ways you can avoid the formation of harmful compounds when cooking organ meat
