Bison Nutritional Information
Bison meat is a nutrient-dense food because of the proportion of protein, fat, mineral, and fatty acids compared to its caloric value. Comparisons have shown that bison meat has a greater concentration of iron, zinc and essential fatty acids than other meat sources.
Bison meat is a rich source of complete protein, containing all the essential amino acids in appropriate amounts. Each serving contains about 22 grams of protein, which is then used in the body to build and repair tissues, produce enzymes and some hormones, and maintain cell membranes and components of the immune system. Rich in Vitamin B-12, selenium, zinc and phosphorus, bison meat is also an excellent source of iron, vitamin B-6 and niacin, all of which are recommended for daily use.
Bison meat contains essential fatty acids such as linoleic (Omega-3) and linoleic (Omega-6). These substances must be obtained through the diet because they cannot be made in our bodies and are thus commonly lacking. Their function is to assist the formation of cell membranes, which aid in the production of hormone-like compounds and participate in immune and visual processes. Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to help fend off Alzheimer’s disease and reduce the likelihood of heart attacks.
Bison meat is a great natural source of bio-available iron. The high iron content in bison meat helps to boost energy and increase endurance by improving the blood’s capability to transport oxygen and carbon dioxide to and from body cells. Bison meat has what most nutrition-conscious people want: lots of iron and less fat. Bison meat was one of the 5 foods recommended for women in the July 2001 issue of the Reader’s Digest article, “Five Foods Men and Women Need Most”.
