WHY EAT BUFFALO (BISON) MEAT?

Buffalo is often 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:

Species                   Grams of  Fat                  Calories                   Cholesterol

                                                                      Buffalo (Bison)            2.42                                143                                 82

                                                                      Beef                                9.3                                 211                                 86

                                                                      Pork                              10.5                                 215                                 92

                                                                     Chicken                         7.41                                 190                                 89

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. Bison is also accepted as a diet food by several nationally recognized weight loss programs.

What is the difference between bison and buffalo?

Scientifically, the term "buffalo" is incorrect for the North American species; its proper Latin name is Bison bison. However, common usage has made the term "buffalo" an acceptable synonym for the American bison, according to the National Bison Association.
