Ostrich meat has additional benefits beyond its flavor. It is very low in fat and cholesterol, even lower than skinless chicken, while offering high iron content, making it a great beef-alternative for those watching their weight. Also, this lower fat content means that there is less shrinkage during the cooking process (less raw meat needed per serving) and the meat will cook faster.
Product is Flash Frozen
Sent in our chilled packaging, if the product is totally defrosted on receipt it should not be re-frozen and must be consumed within 7 days.
After packaging and labeling, the ostrich meat goes through a process of shock freeze in order to preserve the original quality.
Keep the meat in the freezer, in its original packaging. If you want to cook it immediately after you received it, allow thawing slowly in the refrigerator. It will take longer to thaw, but this way the meat will retain its properties and texture.
Important: after thawing, do not freeze again!
