Pâté and foie gras are such recurrent ideas to serve as snacks and delicious dishes in your meals. But you’ll wonder… Pâté or foie gras? You maybe know the general differences between both, meanwhile they are unknown at many levels. If you want to know more about which product is better for you to make your snacks and dishes, let us explain you out and about.
On the one hand, there is the foie gras. This product is made by using only liver of goose or duck that has previously been overfeed with the purpose of developing it as much as possible. For its production, the liver is not mixed with other foods. It is only treated with warmth for a better cleaning. This typical French delicacy has a high vitamin A and other nutrients, even higher than the pâté, so it will also help to increase your defences.
On the other hand, there is the pâté. This product is made by mixing various ingredients and types of meat, since it is a meat derivative of different animals. This product is not called with the correct term, which would be “pasta” or “liver pate”. It is made with a mixture of meats, including that of pork, and by mixing it with milk, flour, seasonings and spices. It is rich in vitamin A, so it is perfect for kids and adults.
They see very similar, but as can see there are great differences between them. Either way, both are perfect for any occasion, any time of the year and to combine with any meal. If you want to try the foie gras, here we recommend this Duck foie gras block nature Mas Parés.
