Yes folks, I am wondering if anyone here knows how to make your own dessicated thyroid, from raw thyroid glands!
I used to just use little pieces of the raw, frozen thyroid, but that got to be too much of a pain to measure out and store, espeically while travelling. I've been using the Nutri-Meds porcine thyroid caps for awhile now, but it doesn't seem very...potent...(if it does anything at all...).
I've been searching online, but haven't come up with any instructions that seem definitive. I did see a forum post where someone said you basically mince it, dry it, grind it up, and then wash it in some sort of "spirits" to remove the fat (I'm guessing to extend shelf life?). Wouldn't it be enough to just dry it...it would sort of be like thyroid pemmican then, right? ;-) And pemmican is supposed to last a while at room temp I think.
There HAS to be an old recipe or instructions for this somewhere!!!
