Why Venison is so healthy

it's packed with protein

Farm-raised venison is a high quality, complete source of protein - a cooked venison loin contains approx. 30g of protein per 100g. This protein comes in the form of essential amino acids, which are important for muscle growth and repair, brain function, hormone production and sleep.

Venison is LOW in FAT, calories & sodium

A cooked venison loin contains less than 3g of fat per 100g, and fewer calories than beef, lamb or even skinless chicken. Venison is also naturally low in sodium, which makes it better for your heart than other red meats. 

Venison is Rich in Vitamins & Minerals

Venison is full of healthy B vitamins riboflavin, niacin and thiamin, which are vitally important for maintaining energy levels. Venison's naturally high levels of Vitamin B6 helps regulate blood sugar, while B12 protects against anemia. Venison is also rich in easily-absorbed minerals such as iron, phosphorus, potassium and zinc, which are essential for good health.
