Yak meat is juicy, flavorful, and healthy. The flavor can be compared to sweet beef flavor with no gaminess and no greasy after taste. While being 95% fat-free, its delicate, delicious flavor comes from its unique distribution of fatty acid percentages.
Yaks are extremely low in palmitic acid that is bad for our health (30% less than beef as a percentage of fats and 120% less than beef as a percentage of meat.)
Yak meat is also much lower in calories, saturated fats, cholesterol, and triglycerides.
Simultaneously, Yak meat is much higher in stearic and oleic acids that are good for us (35% higher than beef as a percentage of fats.)
Yak meat is also higher in protein and solids (less water) than beef.
Yak meat may be the healthiest meat you can eat, certainly better than beef, or even buffalo, elk, or skinless chicken. Yak is even lower in fat than salmon.
All this is accomplished on a grass/forage diet alone, with no grain, hormone, steroid, or antibiotic feed supplements.
