How many capsules would I take if I wanted to consume 1 ounce of fresh beef liver?Updated 2 months ago

Understanding the Nutrient Content of Encapsulated Organ Meats

Whole food supplements, like our encapsulated organ meats, offer a convenient way to reap the nutritional benefits of these nutrient-rich foods without the need for cooking or even tasting them. However, the precise nutrient content of these supplements can vary from batch to batch. Here's what you need to know.

Nutrient Variations in Whole Food Supplements

Just like the grass-fed beef you buy from your local butcher, the nutrient content of our organ meat supplements can differ slightly depending on several factors:

1. The individual cow: Each cow has a unique nutritional profile, which depends on its genetics and overall health. This affects the nutrient content of the organ meats derived from it.

2. Grazing conditions: The quality of the pasture where the cow grazed can also impact the nutrient content of the meat. Richer pastures generally produce more nutrient-dense meats.

3. Season: The time of year when the cow is processed also plays a role. Seasonal variations in pasture quality can lead to slight differences in nutrient content.

Nutrient Profile Estimate

While the precise nutrient profile may vary, we can provide a rough estimate based on typical values. Generally, a serving of our beef liver capsules containing 3,000 mg of desiccated beef liver has a nutrient profile comparable to that of 1 ounce of fresh liver.

Keep in mind that these estimates are a rule of thumb and actual nutrient content may vary. However, rest assured that we are committed to sourcing our organ meats from grass-fed, pasture-raised cows to provide you with the highest quality, nutrient-dense supplements possible.

If you have specific dietary needs or concerns, please consult with a healthcare professional to determine if our encapsulated organ meats are right for you.
