VENISON (and other game...) - PUFA Omega 3: Omega 6 ratios?

Answered on February 16, 2014

Hi,

First question here it is,

Any knowledge about the breakdown of fats found in Wild Venison (deer?)

It is described as being very 'lean' and much lower in fat than lamb, beef etc, however is there any knowledge out there as to the breakdown of this low fat content? Particularly, with reference to the Omega 3 and Omega 6 ratios. I'm guessing, being wild and naturally grazing herbivores, that they have a favorable ratio of PUFA, well balanced and not particularly high in Omega 6.

Please let me know if you have any insight,

Thanks

They are ruminants, so they will have low total PUFA (4-6% guesstimate) and low o6:o3 ratio (2-5:1 guesstimate).
