Beef or Bird?

December 21, 2010

Is ostrich really better for you than beef? If pork is "the other white meat," think of ostrich as "the other red meat." According to many food experts, it's poised to become the world's most popular meat choice and for good reason. Ostrich packs more protein than steak, yet has one-eighth as much fat. In fact, ostrich is lower in fat, cholesterol and calories than beef, turkey, chicken and pork. This is a healthy option that doesn't taste like chicken! Its rich red meat has the robust flavor of beef tenderloin and cooks in about one-third the time. If you're looking for a healthy alternative to red meat, give ostrich a try.
