Inglewood ACO organic certified Cobb/Ross white chicken. This product is sold fresh or frozen in a pack of approximately 400 gm of liver, plus or minus 5%.
Organ meats from healthy animals are among the most nutrient-dense foods and were highly prized in traditional societies where every part of the animal was consumed. The operative word here is 'healthy'. Organs such as the liver and kidneys perform critical filtering and cleansing functions in the body. The last thing you want to be eating is the organs from an unhealthy animal that led a miserable, restricted life in a shed.
All the organs we offer come from the whole, pasture-raised animals we source from regeneratively- managed farms. These animals are vigorous, robust and genuinely free ranging and their diets are diverse and complex resulting in prolific gut flora and healthy organs.
Liver is rich in protein, low in calories and packed with essential minerals and vitamins but it's particularly important because it supplies vitamins in easily accessible, 'active' forms such as vitamin D3, B12, folate, choline and retinol ('active' vitamin A). By contrast, plant sources of vitamin A require us to convert them during digestion in order to use them. And, of course, liver is rich in iron, supplied in the haem form which is helps maintain adequate stores of iron, particularly important for women.
The chicken we source is:
- packed with the farm and breed clearly labelled;
- 8-12 weeks old - outside from 3 weeks;
- growth promotant and antibiotic-free;
- free ranging on chemical-free pasture;
- from either certified organic or fully pastured farms;
- from NSW and Queensland farms.
The producers we work with are entirely transparent about their processes and welcome all questions.
