Foie gras is surprisingly low in bad fats and high in good fats. Many studies conducted by well-known and respected authorities have proven foie gras is as healthful as any other meat, although moderation is the key. We know that France consumes the largest portion of the world's foie gras production; yet, there are fewer cardio-vascular diseases in France than in the USA, and the life expectancy is slightly higher in France. So, is it foie gras, the cheese or the wine?
Though the method of preparation, the grade, and the individual bird that produced the foie gras will impact the exact nutritional Information, these are the approximate values per 100 grams (3.53 ounces) of foie gras.
