The first time I tasted a heart healthy Bison Burger was at Ted's Montana Grill here in Altanta and it was love at first sight. This ground grass-fed meat is perfect for meatloaf and hamburgers and can have as little as 10% fat content, sometimes even less. However, the best tasting and juiciest burgers are usually made from meat that has an approximate 20% fat content.

Buffalo Meat is Extremely Healthy!
Buffalo meat is naturally flavorful and healthy, in fact if you didn't know, you would think you were eating the most flavorful Beef steak or burger you have ever had.
Buffalo meat has a rich, beef-like taste. Being lower in cholesterol and calories yet higher in iron and protein makes buffalo a perfect beef substitute for the health-conscious, or those on restricted red meat diets. In fact, buffalo has less cholesterol than chicken with the skin removed or even most fish!
Important differences when compared to beef include:
100% Ranch Raised
100% MSG Free
60% to 80% less fat (depending upon the cut of the meat.)
35% less cholesterol than beef (+less than chicken with the skin removed.)
30% higher in protein and less calories.
No growth-inducing hormones or steroids or antibiotics
No known human allergies.
