DESICCATED LIVER 101
When was the last time that you chowed down on a heaping plate of liver and onions? What’s that? You can’t remember? Never? That’s what I thought! Liver and onions was once a very popular meal- just ask your grandparents! Unfortunately, this meal, and liver in general, has disappeared from our modern diets. Beef liver is one of the most nutrient dense foods on earth but most people are not reaping the benefits.
What is Desiccated Liver?
I’m just guessing here, but I think people have stopped eating liver and other organ meats because they do not taste very good. I don’t like the taste of liver but I love the benefits so I take desiccated liver supplements. Desiccated liver supplements are made by taking fresh, raw, grass-fed, beef liver and dehydrating it at a low temperature. The dehydrated liver is then milled into a fine powder and encapsulated. With desiccated liver supplements, you can get all of the health benefits of fresh, raw, beef liver with none of the awful offal taste.
