WHY EAT BUFFALO MEAT?

Buffalo has often been called the "original health food". Buffalo meat is lower in fat, calories and cholesterol and higher in protein than most other meats. Here’s how it stacks up:

In addition, buffalo are not subjected to chemicals, drugs and hormones. Nor are they force-fed in high density pens. They are handled as little as possible and spend most of their time grazing. This is probably why persons whose system reacts unfavorably to some food products, find they have no allergic reactions to buffalo meat. It is also accepted as a diet food by several nationally recognized weight loss programs.
