Health Benefits

Meats are an important source of protein, calcium, zinc, and many more nutrients that a balanced diet requires. The biggest benefit of meat is protein. Proteins are combinations of amino acids. These are necessary for building, repairing, and maintaining body tissue, synthesizing hormones and enzymes, and supplying energy.

The Dietary Guide Lines for Americans 2010 offers good direction for healthy lifestyles. Of particular interest is the principle that advises, “Go Lean with Protein”. This guide line recommends selecting the lower fat options with “lean meats and poultry.” All These nutrients are important for a healthy lifestyle. Freeze dried foods are important for long shelf life and emergency situations. Honeyville’s Ranchers Cut meats are the best of both worlds. Each kind has its own individual benefits for your long term food storage and family preparedness.
