All About Emu
  • Ground extra lean
  • Steaks
An emu is a large flightless bird native to Australia. It stands up to 6 feet tall and can weigh over 100 pounds. In fact, the emu is the second tallest bird in the world, behind the ostrich. Even though emus are birds, raw emu meat has a dark red color and looks similar to beef when cooked.

Emu meat is an excellent alternative for health-conscious consumers who love the taste of beef. The red emu meat is similar in taste and texture to lean beef, but lower in cholesterol, fat, and calories. The red meat of the emu has been consumed in Australia for thousands of years. Now domestic emus are raised without the use of antibiotics or growth hormones.

The tenderness and texture of emu meat enables it to be prepared in a variety of ways. It is best prepared lightly grilled or pan fried.

The American Heart Association recognizes emu meat as a healthy alternative to beef.

Emu meat is higher in iron, protein and Vitamin C than beef and has the equivalent fat and cholesterol of poultry.

Emu meat is extremely low-fat, containing only 3 grams per 3.5 ounce serving. The fat is 43 percent monounsaturated, which lowers the "bad" LDL cholesterol.

Emu meat is a rich source of protein and typically has a better nutritional profile than other lean meats. For example, one 3-ounce serving of emu meat provides 28.6 grams of protein and only 143 calories, half the calories found in a similar size serving of beef. Furthermore, the total fat and saturated fat content of emu is only 1/10 of that contained in beef.

Emu meat has:
  • Fewer calories
  • More protein
  • Much less fat than any meat; 1/4 the fat of beef and 1/2 the fat of elk and venison
  • Less saturated fat
  • Low cholesterol levels
  • More iron
  • Less sodium
  • More potassium
  • More of the Vitamins A, D, & E
One notable benefit of emu meat is that the iron content is about twice as high as in other meats. One serving of emu meat provides about 25% of the iron needed each day. This is a notable distinction since about 30% of men and 80% of women athletes have an iron deficiency. Iron is needed to make hemoglobin which is found in red blood cells and which aids in oxygen transportation throughout the body. Iron-deficiency anemia can cause numerous problems for the athlete including fatigue, shortness of breath, impaired performance, appetite loss and lowered immunity.

Emu Oil for Natural Skin Care
Emu Oil absorbs rapidly into the skin, due to its low phosphorous content. Because it has the same fatty acid components as our skin, it is highly compatible, reducing the chance of an allergic reaction. This makes it suitable for people who are hypo-allergenic or have sensitive skin. It is also recommended for those with dry skin or acne, as this natural oil is non-comedogenic and therefore will not clog pores or aggravate acne.
Emu Oil is a natural anti-inflammatory, reducing swelling pain and stiffness in arthritis sufferers, allowing them to reduce their pain medication. It also reduces swelling and seeping in burns, speeding up the healing process. Massage and athletic therapists often use Emu Oil for alleviating muscle aches and strains in their patients.
