    sometimes also powdered bone meal is added into pet food as a filer. I'm sure it's edible but it may not be digestible... :P

      i think bone meal is sometimes used as a human mineral supplement.

        On the plus side, the fact that offal is often in the dog food section means that it is much cheaper than it should be (given how tasty and nutritious it is).

        Yes to both. They are both fine. We boil the tongue, I recommend slicing the taste buds off the tongue before serving, particularly if you are feeding it to kids. And the heart is just a big muscle. Tenderise it with a hammer and it's a great cheap steak.

        Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

          If you read their pet food blog page it says the only difference is the fat content, which is higher.

                  I'll do it! I'm not too embarrassed to say "Hey, I know I'm a human, but can I eat the pet food?" What's the worst they can do, laugh at me? I'm used to that!

                    Doc Grok:
                    I'm assuming that the reason it's being sold as dog food it because there would be legislation involved in being able to sell those as human grade at the market or it simply could be that not many people would buy those. If you're interested in consuming, I'd just check with the stand owner to make sure there is nothing you should be aware of. It doesn't hurt to ask.

                    I feed my dog a raw diet. He eats purely raw meat with a bit of added sweet potato and salmon oil, so that's something I would happily feed him. He usually eats stuff such as duck necks, cornish hen carcases, rabbit spines, etc. The meat that the local raw pet store gets it from are all local, free-range, grass fed. I assume it would be safe for me to technically eat it but they are usually mostly bone.

                    Cheers!
