Superfoods made easy for you! Our Ancestral beef blend of 80% ground beef and 20% heart and liver is a nutrient dense staple to add to any recipe which calls for ground beef. The benefits of eating organ meats can not be overstated. The Ground beef with heart and liver blend is indistinguishable enough to replace most recipes that call for ground beef or pork with this blend. Combine with the plain ground beef for burgers, or with sausage for meatballs, meatloaf or stir fry with this blend.
Beef liver is an enriched source of preformed vitamin A (retinol) containing synergistic amounts of all other fat-soluble vitamins (D, E, and K). Vitamin A comes in two forms: preformed vitamin A (retinol) from animals and provitamin A from plant pigments. Preformed vitamin A (from animal proteins) is more easily absorbed (75%-100%) than provitamin A, which requires conversion to retinol and can have a lower absorption efficiency depending on genetics.
Liver contains abundant bioavailable vitamin B12 and the suite of B-complex vitamins including folate. It is an important source of choline and contains a number of bioavailable micronutrients including iron, copper, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, and manganese. Additionally, grass-fed beef liver has a favorable essential fatty acid profile.
Beef heart is a good source of mineral metals such as zinc and iron that have been linked to boost our immunity. Heart contains CoenzymeQ10, a fat-soluble vitamin is essential in the production of energy. Heart is also rich in collagen and elastin which are fibers that form the foundation of the structure supporting our skin.
Take your pick of beef suet, pork fat or pork bones for making tallow/lard/bone broth. Cooking with regionally grown and minimally processed animal fats in a great choice for your health as well for the planet.
