Bison is a leaner protein than beef and may be a healthier choice if you’re looking to maximize your nutritional benefit while reducing your calorie or fat intake. Bison is a great choice for Keto-friendly diets—it has nearly 25% fewer calories than beef and is lower in total and saturated fat. Both are good sources of iron, zinc phosphorus, niacin, selenium, and vitamins B6 and B12, although bison is higher in iron and Omega 3s.
Where are your bison raised?
Our bison are grown and raised by Canadian producers on over 9,000 acres of native grasslands in Western Canada. We have two ranches in Saskatchewan and one in Manitoba that are owned and managed by our producer/partner Doug Griller, a third-generation rancher. When required, we also work with select producers in Western Canada that manage/govern their operations under the same guidelines and attention to environmental practices as Noble.
What does bison meat taste like?
We think it tastes great! Bison meat is slightly richer and sweeter than beef and has a smoother mouthfeel, or texture, because of the leanness. Bison and beef have a similar enough flavour that it doesn’t take an adventurous palate to give it a try. In fact, depending on the recipe, it might be difficult to taste the difference. You can substitute bison in most recipes that call for ground beef, chicken or turkey.
Where can I buy bison products?

Are your bison given antibiotics or hormones?
Never. Regulations and industry standards don’t allow the use of hormones in bison. As well, Noble Premium Bison are grass-raised without the use of antibiotics and finished for a short period of time on a free choice of grains.
