The meat is a bright red and, shortly after the cut, the muscle takes on a ''rusty'' aspect. This dark red color shows its high iron level which is 25 % of the daily recommandation. Even beef and bison can't achieve this level. Horse meat is suggested for those with higher needs in iron such as pregnant women and anemic persons (although, a medical advice is needed).


Horse flesh gives a natural impression of being tenderized. It is righlty regard as one of the most tendered and leaned butcher meat. Connoiseurs and bodybuilders appreciate purebred and old half-bred breeds for their mature, tender, all-red, and tasty meat with firm fat. An easy and healthy add to any diet.
