When deprived of dietary choline, most men and postmenopausal women developed signs of organ damage such as fatty liver or muscle damage, and 44% of premenopausal women developed such signs.
The richest dietary food sources of choline are (concentration mg/100 g): beef liver (418), chicken liver (290), eggs (251).

Recipe of the day
Liver and Onions
|Food Mall: Liver|
¾ – 1 pt beef stock
1.Prepare the liver. To do this you need to rinse the liver in cold water, pat it dry and then cut out any of the large or stringy tubes before cutting it into pieces. I prefer to cut it into inch-wide strips or inch square pieces, depending on the size and form of the pieces that I started with.
2.Heat some oil in frying pan until it is smoking.
3.Put the liver in the pan for about 2 minutes until it has mostly stopped bleeding. Keep it moving while it cooks to stop it from sticking.
4.Add the onions to the pan and continue to keep this moving in the pan with the liver for 1-2 minutes until the onions are starting to soften. If you don’t keep it moving about then the onions are at risk of burning or cooking unevenly.
5.Finally add the stock to the pan, mix in thoroughly with the liver and onions, and then leave simmering over a high heat until the stock reduces to a thick gravy, which should take about 3-5 minutes.
