Bison is a naturally nutrient-rich meat. But do you know just how healthy it really is?
TenderBison’s cuts are all-natural, without added growth hormones, and never raised with antibiotics. In fact, bison is a healthy, lean, and deliciously-rich source of protein with less fat and more nutrients than other red meats, poultry, and fish. Its superior iron content gives it a beautiful deep red color. It’s also super high in protein, vitamins, and minerals.
Here are a few quick nutrition facts about bison meat:
High in Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids.
Rich source of vitamin B12, selenium, and zinc, and a good source of phosphorous, iron, and vitamin B6.
