Why include boar meat in the menu?

Meat from wild animals is a healthy and interesting way to diversify and make our diet special. Venison differs from ordinary meat in the form of pork, beef or poultry not only in its taste, but also in its composition and nutritional values.

Boar meat stands out for its high amount of protein and, conversely, its low fat content. This makes it a suitable meat for athletes or for people trying to lose weight.

In addition, it also contains a spectrum of B vitamins as well as minerals such as iron, zinc, phosphorus and potassium. The only thing to be careful about with boar meat is to buy it only from verified sellers. Otherwise, you are at risk of contracting various diseases that this meat can infect.
