Characteristics of ostrich meat: a review

Characteristics of ostrich meat: a review

Lalahan Hayvanclk Arastrma Enstitusu Dergisi 42(1): 67-77

The wild ostrich has been hunted previously for its feather and leather. Today, ostriches are being reared in farms to supply the demand for its leather and meat. Some of the biggest ostrich breeding farms are found in South Africa, the southern regions of USA, some European countries and Israel. Scientific studies have shown that although the protein content of ostrich meat is equivalent to that of beef, its cholesterol and fat levels are lower.
