What is Bison?

What is Bison? Bison is a member of the Bovine family. Bison meat is similar to beef, but it is leaner and is usually grass-fed. According to Healthline, “Bison is an excellent source of iron, zinc, phosphorus, niacin, selenium, and vitamins B12 and B6. In a 4-oz serving, it contains 166 calories, 24 grams of protein, 8 grams of fat, less than 1 gram of carbs, and 3 grams of saturated fat.”

Furthermore, Bison is a leaner meat and is a healthier choice if you’re looking to reduce your fat and calorie intake. The flavor is richer than Beef and has more of a flavor profile on its own (in my own personal opinion). Bison also has finer fat marbling which makes it softer and more tender than Beef.

In conclusion, Bison is a leaner and more flavorful meat which makes it an excellent choice for all.

Bison meat comes from the animal, Bison, which is part of the Bovine family.
