Carbs in Seafood and Liver

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created August 19, 2011 at 8:58 PM

Hey ya'll I'm a fan of Dr. Mercola and his idea of nutritional typing. After taking his test I found out I was a Protein Type( high fat/protein, very low carb), and then listed was a chart filled with the foods that are most beneficial for my type. I've been a fan of organ meats and seafood since I was a kid, but after doing some research I've found that lots of these foods contain a significant amount of carbs (beef liver, oysters, mussels etc.) I'm gonna eat them anyways, but do ya'll know why these meats have carbs while non-organ meat and other seafood doesn't?

Gluten cancels out the benefits though, gluten free breaded wouldn't be so bad though(rice flour).

If they can fry a stick of butter, I bet you could fry pate.

You know, if we could figure out a way to bind and deep-fry pate, that would be pretty close.

Some relevant answers here: http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/main-lowcarb-lobby/651671-why-do-oysters-have-carbs.html

In short, oysters and mussels have a fair amount of glucose in their muscle fibers, and liver stores glycogen and also creates glucose.

If someone's only option for eating liver were a breaded/deep-fried/sugar coated liver churro, I would tell them to still eat it.
