Goat patties contain the whole animal except the heads, hides, bladder and large intestine (manure), hooves, horns (if any). We do not use non-edible bones as these would not be consumed in nature due to their density. Organs make up approximately 8 to 10 % of the patties - this includes lungs, liver, heart, kidneys and the tongue. On average over all our protiens, patties are composed of 66% muscle meat, 7% bone, 10% organs, 7% blood and 10% fat.
Goat is the most widely consumed red meat in the world while comprising 63% of all red meat consumed in the world. It also leaves a very small environmental foot print. Some estimate as efficient one tenth that of beef. It is lower in calories, total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol than traditional meats. Less saturated fat and less cholesterol mean healthier red meat for the health-conscious pet owner. Additionally, goat meat has higher levels of iron when compared to a similar serving size of beef, pork, lamb, and chicken. Comparatively, goat meat also contains higher potassium content with lower sodium levels. Goat meat closely resembles that of beef and lamb regarding essential amino acid composition.
Because to the small amount of goat consumed in Canada, it ensures that production is limited to small scale farms where they are pasture raised and grass fed with no application of hormones or antibiotics.
