Heart. Muscle or offal?
We are often questioned why we include heart in our offal mixtures. For the savvy raw feeder, it’s well documented that heart is actually a muscle meat and not a secreting organ. We know this and we have a very valid reason why we include heart in our offal mix.
Do you know what the difference in vitamins and minerals is between a heart and just a normal cut of muscle meat?
The heart differs from normal cuts of meat for several reasons. It contains concentrated amounts co-enzyme Q10, and consuming it this way is the best way to source it naturally! This super nutrient is needed for the basic functioning of cells throughout ones life.
It also contains twice as much collagen and elastin than regular meats, very important for healthy joints.
Heart is also rich in vitamin B1, B2, B6, B12, folic acid, iron, potassium, selenium, phosphorous, copper, iodine, iron, taurine, iodine and zinc as well as Vitamins A, D, E and K and obviously being a great source of protein. It’s an all round goodie!
So you see, teamed with our secreting organs in our offal blend of liver (50%), pancreas and kidney, heart is not just a muscle meat! It’s far superior to your average cut of meat and should be treated as such.
