Ostrich is a red meat and is lower in cholesterol, calories and fat than chicken or turkey. It still remains high in protein and iron. Due to this meat having good nutrients, it comes highly recommended as the leading protein source from the American Heart Association, the American Diabetic Association and the American Cancer Association.

Ostrich meat has a pH balance that is ideal, so this meat doesn't harbor harmful bacteria such as salmonella or E. coli like chicken and other meats do. The combination of good tast, great flavor and nutrition and the veritable ease in cooking is the reason ostrich meat is found on the menus of several of America’s finest restaurants.

The ostriches at blackwing are fed a diet that consists mainly of alfalfa and are free-ranged farmed in places that are far healthier and cleaner than most places where chicken and turkeys are raised. It is no wonder, then, that ostrich meat is a very healthy meat.

A three ounce serving of ostrich meat contains 97 calories, 22 grams of protein, 2 grams of fat and 58 mg. of cholesterol. Compare this with skinless chicken that has 140 calories per 3 ounce serving, 27 grams of protein, 3 grams of fat and 73 mg. of cholesterol.

Blackwing Meats is known as the best source of both bison and ostrich. It is very well known among some of the best five-star chefs. The ostrich meat sold here has exceptional freshness and taste.

All of Blackwing’s ostrich consume a diet consisting mainly of alfalfa. Other sources of meat such as beef, chicken and turkey have a diet consisting of less than 20% of grain that is either corn or barley.

Now you can get ostrich meat with Omega-3. You can only find it at As you might already know, most people in the United States are seriously low in omega-3 largely because of the limited number of foods that actually contain omega-3. Because of this, Blackwing Meats have graciously consented to make ostrich patties available with omega-3.

The ostriches that are used to produce these patties are still free-ranged, but they are raised without steroids, antibiotics or hormones. Their diet is rich in flax seeds, a food that is very high in omega-3. The ostrich digests 100% of what it consumes, so this means that you will get a meat that is very high in omega-3.

However, because only a few of the Blackwing ostriches are on this special diet, and it takes a while to raise these birds, supplies of the omega-3 ostrich patties are available in only a limited supply. Depending upon the demand for ostrich meat rich in omega-3, we may put more of our ostrich on this diet, but there may be some point and time when the supply may run out. If you would like to order omega-3 ostrich patties, then you should do it as soon as possible!

Ostrich is very healthy and is a great replacement for any white or red meat including beef, turkey, lamb, chicken or pork. It marinates rapidly and soaks up your favorite seasonings quickly.

Ostrich is a very simple meat to prepare. It is recommended that you never cook this meat beyond medium so that the center is still red when you cut into it. When you roast ostrich use a low temperature and low moisture and cook it uncovered until the internal temperature reads 160 degrees Fahrenheit.

It is not more expensive than other red or white meats considering that it is so much healthier?
