Why Choose Bison? There’s a multitude of reasons!
In fact, when comparing to a similar cut of beef, bison is lower in calories but provides the same, if not more, nutritional value, similar in calorie and fat content to that of white meat.
As an example, a 100 gram (3.5 oz) serving of raw bison provides 20.2 grams of protein and because it is usually around 90% lean, is considered a protein-dense meat.
Omega-3 has a multitude of beneficial properties including promoting heart health, boosting brain function in pregnancy and early stages of life, enhancing eyesight, bone and skin health.
Creatine helps to improve high-intensity exercise performance, and increase recovery time. Studies have shown that an 8 oz (227 g) bison steak would offer approximately 1.4 grams of creatine. According to the International Society of Sports Nutrition, a beneficial supplementary dose of creatine is 3-5 grams for most people.
B vitamins are recognized for their wide range of health benefits and are essential for energy production, optimal brain function, and the nervous system.
Bison meat can provide up to 44% of the RDI (Recommended Daily Intake) per 100 grams of cooked weight, making it a significant dietary source of selenium. Selenium plays a role as an antioxidant and protecting against long-term inflammation/disease.
Iron plays an critical role in energy metabolism and transporting oxygen around the body while zinc is important for the health of the immune system and growth and development. A cooked 8 oz (227-gram) bison steak provides 72% of the RDI for zinc and 41% of the RDI for iron.
Animals are raised in their natural type habitat of grass pastures and are never given any growth or antibiotic hormones making the finished product a healthy and natural protein option.
