Top 4 reasons you should eat more Bison
It’s A Great Idea To Eat More Bison
Our company was founded on the American bison, and although we’ve expanded our offerings to include many selections, we have a special place in our hearts for these animals.
There are lots of reasons to include more bison meat in your diet, and these are my top four:
1. It’s Incredibly Delicious, Tender & Never Gamey
The most obvious reason for most people to eat more bison is that it tastes absolutely delicious.
If you’ve never eaten bison before, you’re probably curious what it tastes like.
The simple answer is that if you like the flavor of beef, you’re going to absolutely love bison. It’s very similar, but with a slightly sweeter taste. It’s naturally leaner and more tender. It has no “gamey” flavor whatsoever.
The key to preparing delicious bison is not to overcook it.
It always needs to be cooked less than you would typically cook the same cut of beef.
When cooked too much, bison will become tough — we always recommend cooking to medium rare for the ultimate flavor and texture.
2. Eating Bison Is Extremely Healthy
Bison meat is very high in essential minerals such as iron, zinc, and selenium.
One 4 oz portion offers:
A) 13% of the daily value of iron
B) 31% of the daily value of selenium
C) And 35% of the daily value of zinc.
It also has a high protein level, supplying 17 grams per 4 oz serving while being low in fat and calories.
3. Eating Bison Meat Helps Increase The Bison Population
When we increase the demand for bison, we encourage more American farmers to raise them, which means more herds and genetic diversity.
We hope to see the population of this keystone species reaches 1 million during our lifetime.
Bringing the bison population closer to what it was years ago could bring untold benefits to this land, taking us back to a state of balance that we have never known in modern times.
This brings us to the next point:
4. Grazing Bison Are Vital For Healthy Soil
There’s more carbon stored in the soil than in the atmosphere.
The more carbon we keep in the soil, the better, because:
It doesn’t go to the atmosphere. Gives us richer soil, abundant and nutritious crops, cleaner water, and prevents soil erosion.
Grazing animals provide biodiverse fertilizer in the form of dung, creating a protective layer on top of the soil that traps carbon underneath.
