Australian Lamb for Well-Being
Australian Lamb is a naturally good-for-you food packed with essential nutrients.
The iron in lamb helps carry oxygen to the muscles for energy and is important for brain performance, especially memory and concentration. Vitamin B12 is vital for the nervous system, while zinc supports the immune system. The protein in lamb is great for growing bodies and maintaining healthy weight, as it helps you feel satisfied longer.
For example, a 3-oz. (85g) serving of grilled lamb leg steak provides 26% of your daily iron needs, 33% of your daily zinc needs, and 108% of your daily niacin needs (based on Recommended Daily Intake, or RDI).
Australian Lamb is lean and low in cholesterol compared to other animal proteins. In fact, half the fat in lamb is mono-unsaturated, the same type of fatty acids found in olive oil. For instance, a 3-oz. (85g) serving of topside lamb steak has only 5 grams of fat compared to 8 grams in pork composite cuts and 10 grams in Atlantic salmon.
Australian Lamb is an all-natural product—no artificial additives are used in production. All our lambs are naturally raised on lush green pastureland. Our lamb's sweet, mild taste is a result of Australia's pure environment.
