Did You Know?
Emu meat can be used in any recipe that calls for beef.

Emu meat is an excellent alternative for those who love the taste of traditional red meat, but desire lower cholesterol, fat, and calories.

Emu meat is great tasting, very lean (about 95 to 97 % fat free) red meat. It is very similar to No. 1 grade lean beef in both taste and appearance. It is higher in iron, protein, Vitamins A, C, and B12 than beef and lower in cholesterol than lean chicken.

Emu is mostly raised naturally, so in most cases the meat contains no chemical additives.
