    Grassfed Beef Glands: how much?

    I just noticed that my local co-op has available in it's beef selection all of the beef glands.
    I think this is new.

    It says: Glands, adrenal, thymus, thyroid.

    I know that I've read that in other areas this is not commonly available...

    So... how much fresh is safe to eat.
    I wouldn't mind adding some to my order on occasion, but also wouldn't want to over do it.

    Thoughts.

    I'm not sure about the thyroid. I know that those still contain thyroid hormone. I think it would be OK to eat once in a while, but definitely not on a regular basis as it would be like taking Synthroid.

    I have no idea about the adrenals.

    I think the thymus (AKA as sweetbread, the other sweetbread being pancreas) is OK to eat fairly regularly. I think its main function is with the immune system. I am very jealous that you have access to this. I have been wanting to try sweetbreads for a long time but haven't found a vendor who carries them yet.

    Yeah, the thymus/sweetbreads I've had before and really enjoy.
    The others I have not...


    I think it would be healthy to eat them occasionally... just curious how often.
