Nutritionally wise bison probably makes
a better choice than beef. Not only is
bison lower in calories and fat than
beef, but is similar to beef in protein,
vitamin B-12 and iron. A 3.5-ounce
portion of broiled bison rib eye steak
has 177 calories, 6 grams of fat, about
2 grams of saturated fat and 30 grams of
protein, and meets more than 15 percent
of the daily value for both vitamin B-12
and iron. By comparison, the same
serving of broiled beef rib eye steak
has 265 calories, 17 grams of fat,
almost 7 grams of saturated fat and 27
grams of protein. Like bison, the beef
rib eye is a good source of both vitamin
B-12 and iron.
less tramping and erosion damage to the
prairies than cattle, their diet is
higher in grasses and thus less damage
is committed to the long-term chances of
the plains environment, and bison
poop functions as a natural fertilizer
to their grazing areas.
the biggest reason to eat Bison vs.
Beef, just maybe the sweeter taste,
the more dryness of
the meat and the
comparable texture and flavor.
