Pure and simply it's the taste! Bison is the most flavorful red meat available to today's consumer. Naturally nutritious, tender, and easy to prepare - it just doesn't get any better than that! Bison is a dense meat, satisfying you more while eating less, and will not shrink down after cooking.
Bison is an excellent red meat source, low in fat, high in protein, rich in flavor. Research conducted by Dr. M. Marchello, University of North Dakota, has shown that bison is a highly nutrient-dense food because of the proportion of protein, fat, minerals and fatty acids to its caloric value. Comparison of the nutritional values of bison has shown that bison meat is low in fat and calories and high in protein and nutrients. Studies also prove that bison has a greater concentration of iron as well as some of the essential fatty acids.
One serving of bison meat provides 34% of the daily recommended amounts of protein, 32% of zinc, 33% of iron, 10% of niacin, 20% of phosphorus, 14% of vitamin B6 and 42% of the antioxidant selenium. Bison meat is also non-allergenic, making it easier to digest by people with a red meat intolerance.
Bison are raised as naturally as possible. NO growth hormones, steroids, or drug residues reside in bison meat. For today's health conscious consumer bison meat is the natural choice for healthy eating.
