I think they are saying to add in minced veggies as a part of the diet if "green" tripe is not added to the diet, not for the organ itself, but its contents. Yes, the organ itself is just another body part, which is not high in nutrients itself, but...There is nothing special about tripe. It is a body part just like all the rest. It is not a wonder food. There is never a need to add minced veggies or any other kind of veggie. There are no nutrients in veggies that aren't in the meat, bones, and organs of the animals that need them.
When I see people say that dogs are missing nutrients if they don't eat veggies, I always ask what those nutrients are and so far no one has been able to answer that.
O.K. just because I'm in a mood, doesn't happen very often though. I do have to say that since I've added the green canned lamb tripe to the dogs diet maybe twice a week,
their coats have really brightened up and are silky soft.
Tripe is not what a lot of people think it is. According to greentripe.com, "Tripe is the stomach of ruminating animals". They didn't say stomach and contents. They also say, "Green tripe does not necessarily refer to it's color. In this instance it refers to the fact that it has not been touched - not cleaned, not bleached and not scalded. It's actual color is brown, however, sometimes there will be a greenish tint due to the grass or hay the animal ate just before slaughtering."Maxwell the Pyr will not touch green tripe to save his life.
