Health Benefits Of Eating Game Meat

In comparison to the meat from conventionally farm bred animal, wild game meats have a higher health significance. For starters, the animals survive entirely on a natural diet and their forage habits are in line with the animals’ natural behavior. The diet of wild game is made up of that which suits the animals’ genetic makeup making it easier to fully digest and extracts all the nutrients needed to stay healthy.

Animals in the wild eat foods that makes their meat have an omega-3 fatty acids count that is higher than that from the traditionally farmed animals. Also, the wild game meats have higher levels of various beneficial nutrients.  For instance, partridge and pheasant have high levels of selenium, protein, iron, and vitamin (6) that help with cell rejuvenation and protect damage caused by free radicals. Moreover, the game meat has a low cholesterol and fat count making is a healthier choice compared to the meat we buy in food stores.

This is unlike reared animals. Transportation to an abattoir, exposure to unfamiliar circumstances are just some of the issues that will cause animals bound for slaughter under some tension and stress during their handling as they head to be killed. The tension and stress affects the natural quality of the meat; that as well as the use of hormones and chemical in the rearing and killing of the animals as well as the processing and packing of the meat.

Cooking

Compared to farm bred animal meat, game is rich in color and flavor though it can be slightly tougher, depending on the animal in question, age, and way of life. To deal with the toughness and release the rich flavor of the game meat, birds are hung to tenderize their meat. The longer the meat hangs the flavorful it gets, and the hanging can be anywhere between 2 to 12 days depending on the type of game.

Traditionally, birds were hung by their head until the body detached itself and fell, only then was the meat considered ready for cooking. It may be method that most new-age hunters find too evasive, though they all agree that some form of hanging is necessary for the tenderizing of the meat and improving is flavor.

Sustainability

Wild game is free to roam and find food and will forage under natural cover, moorland, woodland, and grassland. The habitats, if well managed, can be home to a big range of plant and animal life that creates biodiversity.

The benefits of safeguarding such habitats extends to the surrounding environs since it has a direct effect on climate change. For instance, the plant life takes in the harmful CO2 from the atmosphere and lock it in the soil where is hazardous effects are insignificant. Both (plants and animals) are inter-depended, and this help them to sustain the circle of life.
