Garlic Matumbo Stew - Envirofit

The edible stomach lining of farm animals is used to make a sort of organ meat called tripe; which is commonly known as matumbo in Kenya.

Tripe is the term for the palatable muscular walls of the stomachs of animals such as cows and sheep.

One of the most popular types of tripe is beef tripe. Tripe is a rough meat that requires careful preparation to make it palatable. It is frequently prepared using cooking techniques like boiling or stewing.

It has a moderate flavour and a chewy texture that allows it to absorb the flavours of the other items it is cooked with.

Tripe is a good source of nutrients such as: B12 vitamin, selenium, zinc, calcium and iron. As a result, the human body may benefit in the following ways from the consumption of tripe:-

Helps to develop muscle

Helps prevent anemia and improves weight control by promoting red blood cell production.

Helps maintain healthy bones and may reduce the likelihood of age-related cognitive impairments.

Fosters a healthy immune response and expedites wound healing

Tripe is highly rich in high-quality protein

The human body requires protein for essential functions like:- Fluid balance, immune system function, cell-to-cell communication and tissue upkeep and repair.

The nine essential amino acids that your body need to operate are all present in tripe therefore making it a complete supply of protein.

A top provider of minerals and vitamins

Tripe is a nutritious powerhouse, including selenium, zinc and vitamin B12. Red blood cell synthesis, neuron signalling and energy creation all depend on vitamin B12. Cell division, immune system health and glucose metabolism all depend on zinc.

A mineral called selenium functions as a potent antioxidant in your body. Additionally, it is necessary for metabolism, thyroid function and DNA synthesis.

Tripe is also an excellent source of the following minerals: calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and iron. Tripe contains a lot of vitamins and minerals as well as a lot of protein.

Contains a wealth of vital nutrients

Tripe is no exception to the rule that organ meats are often quite nutrient-dense .Tripe is high in vital nutrients that your body needs to flourish yet low in calories.

Additionally, tripe is an excellent source of niacin and manganese (vitamin B3).It has significant amounts of vitamin B12, selenium, and zinc; three elements that are often deficient in people's diets. It is also a great source of highly absorbable protein.

Tripe is reasonable and sustainable

Tripe is a less appealing protein choice for individuals looking to conserve money because it is not as desirable as steak and other animal products. Additionally, buying tripe encourages animals to be consumed head to tail thus reducing food waste.
