With changing health needs and growing concerns regarding hormone and antibiotic-free meats, it has become a logical choice to use bison rather than traditional beef. Despite the seemingly short supply, Canada is one of the worlds leading producers of bison meat in the world. Fact is, the world is catching onto the fact that we need to start eating healthy and watching what we put into our bodies in order to stay healthy and in shape. Today, the majority of bison farms ship their buffalo and buffalo meat to the United States, thus the rise in prices since the supply is no longer as large as the growing demand.
So why is buffalo an important part of your diet? The facts are there, it is lower in fat and higher in all nutritional elements than any other form of meat available. In our quest to become healthier and follow a meal plan that gives us the most value nutritionally for our calories, many people have turned to this seemingly “magic meat”, buffalo.
