People often call the comparison between bison and beef Battle of the Red Meat. The result? Almost all sources say that bison is healthier, tastier, and better for the environment.
Although similar in taste and texture, bison has nearly 25% fewer calories than beef and is lower in total and saturated fat while offering a higher protein content. Due to its lower fat content, bison has finer fat marbling, yielding softer and more tender meat.
