Bison isn't "health food". It's food that's healthy, really healthy. Naturally lean and lower in saturated fat than beef, chicken, pork, or even salmon. Low in cholesterol, low in sodium, a great source of iron and a healthy dose of Omega 3 fatty acids to boot. The dense proportion of protein, fat, mineral, and fatty acids to caloric value make bison one of the more nutrient-dense meats available today.
No other protein can make these USDA health claims.

Bison tastes like the red meat you already know and love, but with a bigger, richer flavor that starts out hearty, then finishes with a hint of salty sweetness. It boasts a delicious juiciness and tender texture that makes it one of the most sought-after delicacies among steak enthusiasts.
Our bison roam the plains and prairies, grazing on wild grasses, sagebrush and other native vegetation. What they don't graze on are hormones, antibiotics, or fillers. This is pure, honest red meat with no artificial ingredients whatsoever.
