An old adage has it that eating sheep's brains will make you smarter.Once available throughout the country – along with other offal such as sheep's testicles and spinal marrow from both sheep and cows – sheep-brain sandwiches are now becoming harder to find. Cooks at the popular Barbar takeaway chain said that two West Beirut branches still receive 40 orders a day for sheep brains in two common preparations: chopped up as a salad of sorts or in a sandwich with lemon and garlic. Licensed dietitian Lynn Charabaty said that, like most organ meats, sheep brains contain significant amounts of iron and zinc, as well as essential vitamins like B12 and folates.Though once specific to cows, the disease has been discovered in sheep as well, leading the U.K. to ban the sale of the brains from sheep and cows over 1 year old.
