tripe

Tripe contains an abundance of nutrients that can do a world of good during pregnancy. It is a healthy source of protein, Iron, Vitamin A and B12. Protein helps in strengthening bone and muscle health and repairing damaged tissue. Iron and Vitamin B12 prevent anaemia in pregnant women. Vitamin A aids the development of foetal vision and immune system. Tripe also contains selenium, a mineral that is essential for the body’s signaling and defence systems.

However too much of tripe can cause vitamin A toxicity and dangerously high copper levels which can cause birth defects and liver toxicity. Therefore it is best to consume tripe only once per month.

You can consume tripe in the form of soup, stew, sauced food or sausage. Cultures across the world have enjoyed this delicacy and reaped its benefits during pregnancy. But remember tripe is high in cholesterol therefore moderation is the key.

Go ahead, ask for your favourite form of tripe wish yourself Bon Appétit.
