Ground ostrich combines the health benefits of poultry with the flavor and versatility of ground beef.
Although this flavorful meat is considered poultry, ostrich is more like grass-fed beef than chicken or turkey. In fact, it tastes more like beef too, but slightly sweeter.
Ostrich meat has additional benefits beyond its flavor. It is very low in fat and cholesterol, even lower than skinless chicken, while offering a high iron content, making it a great beef-alternative for those watching their weight. Also, this lower fat content means that there is less shrinkage during the cooking process (less raw meat needed per serving) and the meat will cook faster.
