A Nutritious Choice
American Lamb checks all the boxes

NATURALLY NUTRIENT RICH

A 3 oz. serving of American Lamb is naturally nutrient rich. It’s an excellent source of protein, zinc, selenium, riboflavin, niacin and vitamin B121. These essential nutrients fuel a strong immune system, support cellular function, help maintain energy, fight fatigue and fuel brain health2,3.

Plus, lamb provides the “heme” form of iron which is more readily absorbed and utilized by the body for important development than plant-based alternatives4.

POWERFUL PROTEIN

A 3 oz. serving of American lamb provides powerful protein. In fact, at 23 grams it’s almost 50% of daily intake1.

Protein is not only important because it powers daily activities, research suggests it can also help preserve lean body mass during weight loss.

 

HEART - HEALTHY FAT

A 3 oz. serving of American lamb contains 40% heart-healthy fat. This monounsaturated fat is the same “good fat” found in olive oil and avocados1.

American lamb fits easily within the daily fat, saturated fat and cholesterol recommendations of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. 

EXCEPTIONALLY LEAN*

On average, a 3 oz. serving of American Lamb is considered lean, with only 160 calories1.

Lean cuts of American lamb include the leg, loin and shoulder.

*USDA/FSIS DEFINITION OF LEAN  (PER 100 GRAMS OR 3.5 OUNCES)

< 10g. TOTAL FAT
< 4.5 SATURATED FAT
< 95mg. CHOLESTEROL
