We get fresh frozen tripe from local suppliers. It can stink bad, sometimes not so much - depends a lot on the animals diet. My dogs all go nuts for it. The cats not so much, but they'll eat a little every now and then. I try to give at least once a week.

TRIPETT is second best to fresh. It has minimal additives, but it is cooked, and thereby most of the nutritional value is depleted. I wouldn't use any of the other canned types - especially Merrick, who claims their product to be "96% USDA Inspected deboned tripe." I'd like to know what bones they're finding in the stomach lining...

There are a few freeze dried varieties I've seen on the market, but I don't know enough about them to feel comfortable commenting there.

I have a source for free, fresh tripe and was wondering if it was worth it. Certainly don't want to stink up the house. Think I'll freeze it and try it in the spring when I can open the doors and windows if needed. Maybe I could feed it partially thawed so it won't stink so much?

Default Green tripe is best

For human consumption it is bleached, so I would never use it. I don't like it because it stinks and I prefer to use a good probiotic instead. There is enough good raw stuff apart from tripe, which is actually pancreas.

I have friends who ate it growing up, but I never did and never will.

You bring up a good point: you don't want to use white tripe, like you would find in the supermarket or many butcher shops in the US. you want to make sure it's raw GREEN tripe. It's not bleached, and does have a green tinge to it. I've never had a problem with the smell from the fresh stuff. The canned is another story, though.

I get fresh tripe when I buy whole goats- cause it is in the goat- lol! I don't find that fresh tripe like that really smells too bad. I cut it up, portion it out in bags and freeze it. Generally that doesn't bother me as far as smell like the canned or ground and frozen beef stuff does. Maybe because it is fresh, maybe because it is goat, I'm not sure.
