While many people would normally choose beef as their main source of meat and protein, it cannot be ignored that bison meat has been gaining in popularity over the years and is now seen as one of the major competitors to ordinary beef due to its health benefits and overall superiority.
Beef itself is rich and calories and, while in moderation it can be good for you, too much is often touted as being unhealthy and detrimental to your long term health. However, primarily using bison as your meat source means that you will be eating something that is rich in nutrients such as zinc, proteins and nitrates for example; all elements that are good for your health when taken in moderation. Indeed, one of the big advantages that bison meat has over the run of the mill beef that we see sold in so many shops and supermarkets is that it is fat free. When cooking normal beef you can often see the bits of fat however with meat from a bison this is not the case. Bison’s are fed with pure minerals and do not receive any artificial or unhealthy foodstuffs therefore their meat won’t contain any either and you will be getting a much more healthier and fat free protein source.
Does it taste any different however? Only slightly and the health benefits far outweigh and slight change in taste. Indeed, meat from a bison isn’t an extremely expensive meat either so you do not have to worry about any added costs or charges when switching over from normal beef. In fact, there are many recipes and cooking instructions available right now that use this form of meat as their primary ingredient so you won’t have to think of ways in which to incorporate it into your meals.
