While Ostrich meat is classified as poultry and is nutritionally similar, it is more similar to beef in color, texture, and taste
As with beef, ostrich gets its red color from myoglobin, a protein (often mistaken for blood) in the muscle that turns red when exposed to oxygen
Like many exotic meats, it is another healthy option since it is high in protein, vitamin B6, B12, Iron, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Phosphorus, Zinc, Selenium and low in fat
Surprisingly, Ostrich is even lower in calories, cholesterol and fat than skinless chicken and turkey!
There are also many environmental and sustainable advantages that make Ostrich meat a very attractive option
Farm raised ostriches require very little land, and like all non-ruminant herbivores, they produce much less methane than cows and other ruminant animals
Ostriches also require less feed than cows, and they have a faster and higher meat yield
Best Suited For: Heavy Chewers!
Storage Instructions - No need for a freezer or fridge, this item does just fine in a cool and dry space!
