    chicken fat

    Primal Fuel
    chicken fat -- organic = okay, nonorganic = toss?

    just making sure i got that right - nonorganic --> toxins in the fat, so you throw it away?
    feel free to take a look at my journal!

    But its more than just organic, you want hormone free and pasture raised, no grains.

    Would a schmaltz by any other name taste as sweet?

    If you are afraid of the chicken fat, eat the (almost) fat free chicken breast. Organic or not, I eat whatever decent raw chicken that I buy, whithout obsessing too much about wether it's organic or not, and I avoid chickens served by Ronald MCDonald, the KFC guy or all those fast food chains...

    If it's certified organic, it's free of hormones and chronic anitibiotics. Also, only the beef industry has been granted the right to constantly bombard the animal with both of those. US chickens are hormone free. Which doesn't mean they're not being fed organic soy, etc. in their feed. The other thing with, let's call it Walmart-type chicken, is that it's packaged in a sodium solution to plump it up so you pay for increased weight.

    Ack, that was tmi. I would happily use the fat of organic chicken, even if the poor little beasty didn't get to eat worms. JMO.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    Thanks for that, I couldn't remember what the rules are over there.
