LUXLife Magazine recognizes sustainably raised ostrich meat from Idaho producer as a gourmet option with unique health benefits and less environmental impact.

American Ostrich Farms (AOF) has been named 2022's Best Alternative Red Meat Producer by LUXLife Magazine in their 7th annual Food & Drink Awards. LUXLife's awards program recognizes those who offer the best products, finest services, and incredible experiences to their customers. Nominees from across the globe are assessed and judged purely on merit and excellence. 

"We are honored to be recognized as the USA's Best Alternative Red Meat Producer," says AOF Founder and CEO Alex McCoy. "This award validates our work to provide a more sustainable, healthful, yet truly gourmet product that is quickly finding its way into some of the nation's most outstanding dining establishments, as well as home kitchens across the country."

With the opening of their own USDA-inspected processing plant, AOF closed the gap on its "hatch to harvest" production chain, which allows them to ensure that each and every cut of meat that goes to market is of the utmost quality. At a time when consumers are seeing more plant-based and cultivated protein products hit store shelves, AOF is taking advantage of the ostrich's unique biology to offer a novel solution to the environmental and health concerns surrounding conventional animal-based products and these newer substitutes. Learn more and view all available products at www.AmericanOstrichFarms.com.

What makes ostrich meat healthy?

There are a lot of factors that contribute to any food's health benefits and risks, including fat-to-protein ratio, nutrient density, digestibility, and - when it comes to animal proteins - the animal's diet and the part/s consumed.  Red meat often gets a bad rap, due to clinical studies linking overconsumption to health issues such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers. It's important to understand, however, that not all red meats are created equally, and as with anything, moderation is key.
