Word of caution:
It is also widely believed that people who have gout should avoid eating organ meats, as they contain purine, a molecule associated with gout flare-ups.
Furthermore, there can be a concern that animals that have been exposed to toxins and pesticides will have toxicity in their organs. It is important to remember, however, that while organs, such as the liver and kidneys, act as filters for toxins that enter the body, they excrete those toxins and do not store them.
Organ meat quality – It is vital to know how the animals whose organs are being eaten were raised before slaughter.
Essentially, if the animal has led an unhealthy life, their internal organs will not be healthy either.
It is recommended that organ meats should be sourced from a farm that uses organic/clean practices and puts its animals out for pasture.
