has found a place on the world's menu, delivering red meat flavor with
two-thirds less fat! Already a popular menu item at upscale American and
European restaurants, ostrich is poised to become "the premier red
meat of the next century," says The National Culinary Review.
The reason is simple. . . no meat combines the flavor, versatility and
nutritional benefits of ostrich.
Now available throughout the United States, ostrich is passing the test of consumer acceptance. Easily prepared by the homemaker, it still allows fine chefs to demonstrate their culinary skill. Ostrich is similar in taste, texture and appearance to beef. And it's comparable to beef in iron and protein content. But ostrich has less than half the fat of chicken and two-thirds less fat than beef and pork. And ostrich beats the competition with fewer calories, too. That's why ostrich is the choice of health-conscious consumers who refuse to sacrifice flavor. See our nutritional comparison chart for all the specifics.
Ostrich . . .
are the largest existing bird, adults stand 7 to 9 feet tall and weigh
300 to 400 pounds. They can reach speeds of 35 to 45 mph for 20 minutes
and can see several miles in the distance. Ostriches, as with all animals,
must be treated with respect. Most birds are calm and docile, except during
breeding season. These are the only birds with 2 toes and with unique
feathers that are superior in dust collection abilities.
