Bison is an excellent red meat source: it is low in fat, high in protein, and rich in flavor. Research has shown that bison is a highly nutrient-dense food because of the proportion of protein, fat, minerals and fatty acids to its caloric value.
Although at one time the bison population faced dangerously low numbers, they have repopulated many regions of North America and are no longer considered endangered. An advantage of buying bison meat, as opposed to cow meat, is that nearly all bison are free-range and grass-fed, ensuring the quality and tastiness of the meat. One of the most popular ways to prepare bison is as a burger; let me know if you'd like recipes or check out http://www.adailyapple.com/food/Meats/Bison
