Dr Oz: Bison VS Beef
Larry Olmsted, author of “Real Food Fake Food,” admitted he won’t eat something just because it’s healthier. But for him, if he sees a bison burger on a menu full of beef, he’ll order it every time because it allows him to get his burger fix in a way that still tastes delicious but is better for him.
Dr Oz put bison and beef head-to-head, using data for a typical beef burger versus a typical bison burger. A beef burger is typically about 240 calories while a bison burger is 179 calories. Beef burgers have 6 grams of saturated fat each, while bison has 3.5 grams. Bison is even lower in fat and calories than salmon and chicken! Also, typically when you see buffalo on a restaurant menu, unless you’re talking about chicken wings, it’s likely just a slang term for bison and is the same thing.
