Is Beef Liver a Healthy Food Choice?

Ask the Pritikin Health Experts

Beef liver, or any liver for that matter, is not a good choice for heart health. A small serving of beef liver, just 3.5 ounces, contains nearly 400 milligrams of dietary cholesterol. That’s more than 4 times the amount recommended by the Pritikin Eating Plan for the entire day.

Foods that are rich in saturated fat, trans fat, and/or dietary cholesterol contribute greatly to the build-up of plaque in our coronary arteries, which leads to life-threatening events like heart attacks and strokes.
