Description

The gizzard is a muscular organ in the chicken's digestive tract. It helps to grind up the food that the bird eats. Chicken gizzards are used in various popular dishes throughout the world—for example, as street food in Haiti, as soup in Mexico and as an ingredient in Chinese stir-fries.

The flavour of chicken gizzards resembles that of dark-meat chicken parts—wings, thighs, and legs—but is more intense. They can be chewy; for tender gizzards, braise or parboil them.

Gizzard meat is low in fat and high in several vitamins such as B12, which is essential for brain function; niacin, which promotes healthy circulation and riboflavin, which keeps skin and hair healthy.

Dietary information

Chicken gizzards are surprisingly nutritious, despite being overshadowed by other poultry meat selections. Gizzard meat is high in protein and can satisfy up to 88% of your daily recommended value of protein.

In addition to being a good source of protein, gizzards are also rich in iron. Iron helps your body produce red blood cells, which deliver oxygen throughout your body. Selenium helps protect against free radicals and inflammation.

Did you know?

While the word "gizzard" appears in modern English, its etymology-its history as a word-comes from Middle English "giser", which in turn evolved from Latin "gigeria", meaning giblets. Giblets are other bird organs such as the heart, liver and kidneys, as well as the gizzard.
