Kangaroos are harvested by licensed shooters in accordance with a strict code of practice. Kangaroo exports are subject to stringent inspection requirements by the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (AQIS) under the Australian Standard for the Hygienic Production of Game Meat. The discovery of high levels of CLA (healthy fats) in kangaroos may also increase the health benefits of the meat.
Here are some interesting facts about Kangaroos that you may not know:
There are no commercially farmed Kangaroo.
In Australia, most kangaroo meat is currently sold for use as dog and cat food. However, kangaroo is increasing in popularity among the people of Australia, with high quality kangaroo steaks available in supermarkets. Kangaroo meat is also increasing in popularity in Europe, with European exports rising by 30 per cent following the 2001 UK foot and mouth disease outbreak. Outbreaks in Europe of mad cow disease have also increased international interest in kangaroo meat. In 2002, the Balkans imported more than 2000 tons of kangaroo meat, where it is used for steaks, salami or sausages.
Kangaroo is one of the leanest meats available with an estimated average of less than 2% fat.
It is estimated there are around 35 million kangaroos in Australia. Five of the 48 species of kangaroo are harvested for meat.
Kangaroo meat is the richest known natural source of CLAs currently available. Dairy milk was previously the highest known source of CLAs, followed by beef and lamb. What are conjugated linoleic acids (CLA)? Conjugated linoleic acids (CLA) are polyunsaturated fatty acids that have been the focus of researchers over the past two decades. In animal experiments, CLA have been shown to reduce obesity and heart disease and have anticarcinogenic properties.
Kangaroo are also high in protein as well as being loaded with the healthy fat CLA. Studies have confirmed that CLA has been shown to possess potential anti-carcinogenic and anti-diabetes properties, in addition to reducing obesity and atherosclerosis (high blood pressure).
No Mad Cow here, just healthy protein and lots of CLA.
