Bison is a highly nutrient dense food because of the high relative proportion of protein, mineral, and other nutritional components to its caloric value. Bison has a full compliment of essential nutrients, and a great concentration of many of the essential fatty acids necessary for human well being. It is one of the best and most concentrated sources of iron available – nearly 3 times as much per ounce as is found in chicken. Bison meat is low in fat, and raised as naturally as possible.
