[Chiligala Tips] Does foie gras must be made with foie gras?

Foie gras is usually translated into French Foie Gras, but Foie Gras does not mean foie gras in French: "Foie" = "liver" "Gras" = "fat", so Foie Gras means fat liver. Currently, 95% of France's liver production is duck liver, and only 5% is foie gras, so most of what is eaten on the market is duck liver.

In this case, what is the difference between duck gras and foie gras?

Foie gras

  • Larger body shape
  • Light pink ivory white color
  • Although the oil content is heavier, it feels more fragrant in the mouth.
  • The taste is soft and melts in the mouth

duck liver

  • Slender body shape
  • Color is light yellow
  • Less oil but richer taste
  • The taste is thicker

Foie gras and duck gras each have unique flavors and supporters, so consumers can choose based on their personal tastes.
