Enjoy Red Meat, Avoid The Guilt
We love red meat: steaks, burgers, you name it. But we are health conscious, too. Too much red meat consumption can increase health risks for a host of issues like heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. High levels of saturated fat and cholesterol in red meat directly contribute to those issues.
We know what you’re thinking: “But it tastes so good…”
Consuming different foods in moderation means that we need “just-as-tasty” alternatives. We’re not saying you need to stop consuming red meat or less meat overall - that would be a slippery, sad slope. Instead, inject some more variety into your routine and get creative with the types of animal proteins you throw on the grill. Yes, it’s possible to cut back on red meat without giving up that that rich and hearty “red meat flavor.”
Here’s where DUCKCHAR comes into play. DUCKCHAR Moulard Duck Breast is beefy looking and tasting. But it’s not red meat. It just looks and tastes like it is. What could be better?
DUCKCHAR Moulard Duck Breast is white meat (see definition provided by USDA). Yes, it’s white meat even though your eyes are telling you that’s a bold-faced lie. Remember, ducks are birds - not mammals.
Uncooked DUCKCHAR Moulard Duck Breast is red in appearance and when cooked, it delivers a red meat-like experience that many folks mistake for beef tenderloin thanks to its beefy texture and rich duck flavor. DUCKCHAR is also leaner than most cuts of red meat. But it still doesn’t make sacrifices with respect to flavor thanks to its thick layer of skin on the outside that renders out plenty of delicious duck fat during any cook. And compared to many other animal fats, duck fat contains a fair amount of monosaturated fat. When eaten in moderation, monosaturated fats can help to decrease cholesterol levels and reduce risk of cardiovascular disease.
