Consumer Reports: Bison vs. Beef

Bison burgers healthy alternative to beef

Looking for a healthy burger choice, but veggie and turkey burgers aren't cutting it?  Consumer Reports says you may want to try a bison burger.

According to the USDA, a grass fed, three-ounce bison patty has 152 calories and 7 grams of fat.  That's less than a broiled, 90 percent lean beef burger, which averages 184 calories and 10 grams of fat. And it's even less than a broiled, 93-percent lean turkey burger, which averages 176 calories and 10 grams of fat.

Sales of bison meat topped 240-million dollars last year as more people discovered this tasty alternative.
