Venison usually refers to Deer meat, but it can also mean meat from any large game animal including Elk and Antelope. It has become a favourite of health conscious individuals, including those on restrictive diets due to the reduction in fat and cholesterol.
Venison is not only low in fat and cholesterol, but high in vital nutrients like B vitamins, iron, and phosphorus. Like any non-farm produced animal, Venison is resistant to disease and does not live on a diet of antibiotics and steroids. Many people stay away because they believe the flavour is too strong, Venison actually has a wonderful woody, almost fruity flavour that is truly fantastic. Don’t compare it to beef, because there is no comparison in flavour, though the texture is similar.
