It's Raining Vitamin A!

Can you guess what processed food this nutrition label belongs to?

Yes, the sodium level is redic but look at the vitamin and mineral percentages! As it turns out, this is the label to a package of Braunschweiger. Braunschweiger is a type of German liverwurst made from pork livers (and a few other things). Technically a sausage, liverwurst is sometimes sliced and eaten on sandwiches or mixed with cream cheese and seasonings and served like Pâté . Liver and other offal have been touted as some of the most nutrient dense sources of Vitamin A on the planet! Unfortunately, a lot of people are grossed out by organ meat...including myself. Braunschweiger on the other hand is delicious, I mean we fight over it at Mom's Christmas Eve buffet delicious. This year I am going to attempt to make it from scratch (minus a large amount of the sodium). In the mean time, if you have a recipe worth sharing please post it in the comments.

  1. I have created my Vitamina itlay profile at Masterseek site. I really got good business and so many clients through that profile. So I must suggest the business owners to create profiles on this platform.
