are beef hearts used to make ground beef

    Yes, cow hearts can be found in ground beef. The term “ground beef” is usually used to denote a beef product that is made up of trimmings left over from the more tender cuts of the cow. Due to this fact, what ends up in the final ground beef product can vary greatly.

    A study conducted in 2008 analyzed the contents of eight beef patties, each purchased from a different fast food chain. The scientists found that every patty contained more than 20 connective tissue fragments. Since the heart is primarily composed of connective tissue, we can safely assume that every patty contained tissue derived from cow hearts.
