You may have noticed the addition “Bison Burger” on the menu of your favorite burger place or pub within the past few years. According to the New York Times, this legendary American animal – who almost went extinct decades ago – is making a major comeback with both sheer numbers and human appetite. They now number in the 500,000s across ranches and ranges throughout the heartland. Bisons fill a unique niche in the meat market. They are viewed as natural and hearty, a result of their usual grass-fed origins. Diets like the Paleo Diet really focus on eating Bison meat because of its organic upbringings and the “wild” mystique around them. From a health perspective, Bison is viewed much more favorably than its often over-processed cousin, beef. Bison is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and is a very lean meat. Next time you sit down to devour your burger think about trying something new — Bison!
