Why Happy Foie Gras?
Animal cruelty by stuffing ducks and geese
The term foie gras is French and means fatty liver. Foie gras, or foie gras, is a luxurious food made from the livers of ducks and geese. What makes it special, which also accounts for its subtly nutty and delicately creamy taste, is the very high fat content of the livers. This extraordinary fat content is achieved by force-feeding the animals for a period of 12 - 21 days with approx. 0.8 - 1.0 kg of feed per day by stuffing. This corresponds to about 14 kg of noodles per day calculated for an average person. This results in an enlarged fatty liver, as is also the case with overweight people.
Foie gras is available as a raw, pure liver variant and as a processed bloc variant.
By the force-feeding the animals are mechanically tortured and by the massive overweight in the consequence among other things also metabolically ill.
Due to these ethical problems, the force-feeding of animals respectively the foie gras is massively criticized, not only by animal rights activists. Many countries have already banned the force-feeding and partly also the distribution of the products. In many restaurants, the products are no longer sold, despite their availability, due to the ethical problems. Despite the morally difficult situation, far more than 20,000 tons of foie gras are still produced worldwide. This shows the unique taste of foie gras and the fact that there is still such a high demand for it.
Happy Foie Gras
With our Happy Foie Gras, we have developed the first ethically sound and certified organic alternative that is indistinguishable in taste from conventional Bloc Foie Gras. Happy Foie Gras is produced in our special process by subsequently fattening the livers of healthy animals.
Happy Foie Gras is therefore
- Equal in taste
This is shown by various blind tastings and feedback from many star chefs, who can now offer foie gras in their restaurants again with Happy Foie Gras.
Only certified organic ingredients are used. This is not possible with foie gras due to the force-feeding process. The animals were not under stress during the rearing process. As a result, there are significantly fewer stress hormones than in conventional foie gras.
- Ethically sound
No force-feeding, instead certified organic rearing of the animals whose livers we process for Happy Foie Gras.
This makes our Happy Foie Gras a great new alternative for gourmets who also like to listen to their conscience.
