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.
Bison Your Healthy Red Meat Choice!
Bison is a red meat which is nutrient dense because of the proportion of protein, fat, minerals and fatty acids to its caloric value. Research shows bison is a healthy choice being lower in fat, calories and cholesterol than beef, pork or skinless chicken. Bison meat does not marble (fat interspersed in the muscle) like beef. The result is more red meat (protein), high in iron with less fat (calories) per pound. Since bison is a dense meat, you can feel more satisfied by eating less. Many who are seeking healthier lifestyles and practicing wellness are looking for just such a healthy red meat. It is also an industry rule that bison not be subjected to growth hormones or stimulants.
The value of bison is not what you pay, but what you get in return. Nutritionally you are getting more protein and nutrients with fewer calories and less fat.
Why are so many many more people turning to convenient solutions when it comes to meals?
With the changing face of society, far less time is being allocated to food preparation. “My grandmother used to spend hours planning meals every day” says Indish owner Brent Kyle. That is quite a difference from a recent American study which showed that when it comes to modern day food preparation and clean up, men spend an average of 15 minutes per day, while women spend an average of 47.4 minutes.
What accounts for this change?
“Canadians have more money, less time, fewer domestic skills and less inclination to devote time to food related chores. As a result there is an increased demand for foods that can be prepared in a short period of time. This is not a new consumer trend; however, it has evolved over time. When convenience foods were first introduced, consumers were willing to accept a lower quality and poorer taste for the ability to prepare a meal in a short period of time. But today, consumers’ requirements for convenience foods are more sophisticated than ease and speed of preparation. Today, convenience foods must also include ease in purchasing and clean-up, nutrition, flavour and perceived value.”
