Pork liver belongs to the protein food group, and you should consume 5 to 6 ounces of this food group daily, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture dietary guidelines. It provides macronutrients you need for energy and tissue maintenance, including protein and fat. It also comes loaded with vitamins and minerals, with a single serving providing your entire recommended daily intake of some nutrients

Pork Liver (Forest Ridge Farms LLC)

For those of you that enjoy liver, you will truly enjoy the clean, all natural taste of our Forest Fed Pork Livers. Delicious fried up with some seasoned flour or get creative, creating a liver pate or even your own pork liver sausage! Pork liver comes loaded with iron, an essential mineral. Iron helps your body detect the level of oxygen in your tissues, so it can identify and correct low oxygen levels to prevent tissue damage. It also helps distribute oxygen to your tissues via your bloodstream and helps your cells produce energy. Consuming foods rich in iron also protects against disease, because iron boosts the function of your immune system. A 3-ounce portion of pork liver provides you with 19.8 milligrams of iron. It also benefits your health by serving as an excellent source of selenium. A 3-ounce serving of pork liver contains 45 micrograms of selenium, or 82 percent of the daily recommended selenium intake, set by the Institute of Medicine. Selenium acts as an antioxidant, converting damaging chemicals, called free radicals, into harmless compounds, including water. It helps your thyroid gland function properly by regulating the activity of thyroid hormones, and also supports muscle cell metabolism. Pork liver also provides you with vitamin B-12. Like iron, vitamin B-12 aids in oxygen transport -- it helps you produce the red blood cells needed to carry oxygen throughout your body. Foods rich in vitamin B-12 also support the health of your nervous system, staving off the permanent nerve damage that can develop from long-term vitamin B-12 deficiency. A serving of pork liver boasts an impressive 22 micrograms of vitamin B-12 -- more than nine times your daily vitamin B-12 intake requirements
