Benefits of Game

Health Benefits

Research has shown that in the past 15 years selenium intake in Britain has fallen to about 0.39mg per day. The recommended daily intake is 0.6mg to 0.75mg. Both partridge and pheasant meats represent significant sources of this essential nutrient, according to the study which used game provided by the National Gamekeepers' Organisation.

Lean

Wild game meats tend to have a lower fat content, as animals tend to be more active in the wild. Additionally, wild game eat a natural diet as opposed to grain or corn, which is often fed to domesticated animals, contributing to an increased fat content of non-game meat.

Vitamins

wild game meats are good sources of the minerals iron and zinc. Iron is necessary to prevent iron-deficiency anemia. Menstruating women have an increased risk for iron deficiency. Zinc functions as an antioxidant and is important for immune system function and digestion.

STAY HEALTHY

Wild game meats have health benefits when compared to meats from domesticated or farm-raised animals. Examples of wild game include Pheasants, Grouse, Partridges, rabbit and Duck. The fact that wild game eats their natural diet and are very active in the wild contributes to the lower fat content of the meat.
