Dinuguan (Blood Stew)

Dinuguan…………A very common dish in the Philippines, might sound exotic to some foreigner because of its ingredients such as pig’s internal organs particularly the liver, kidneys, hearts, ears and pig’s blood as the soup. Dinuguan comes from the word “dugo” means blood.  There are two versions of dinuguan, one is using “pork” internal organs and the other one is “chicken”. same thing using chicken’s hearts, liver, intestines, kidneys and chicken blood as well. This dish might sound very alarming to others but I think it is the same concept for Europeans “blood sausage”…………………I am not sure of if pig’s blood have health features, so might leave it as a question. Do pig blood have health benefits?
