What Part of the Cow Does Sweet Bread Come from?

The part of the cow that sweet bread comes from is called the thymus. The thymus is the area of the throat or neck and the sweet bread is usually taken from a calf rather than a full grown cow. Glands such as the parotid and sublingual, or tongue are also referred to as sweet bread.
