March 1, 2024

Scotch red meat is an excellent source of protein which helps maintain normal bones and muscle growth. It’s low in salt and contains both iron and zinc, which contribute to the normal function of the immune system. It also provides a range of vitamins including Vitamin B12 which helps combat tiredness and fatigue.

With all this protein, minerals and vitamins delivered naturally, Scotch Beef, Scotch Lamb and Specially Selected Pork play an important role in a healthy, balanced diet for all the family. And, by combining red meat with other healthy options, you can put it right at the heart of a healthy diet.

Scotch red meat goes very well with other protein sources, too, such as beans, lentils and pulses, and if you choose healthy accompaniments such as brown rice, wholewheat pasta or vegetable noodles, then you can also improve your fibre and vegetable intake. It’s all about getting the combinations right to ensure you can enjoy your red meat, and maintain a healthy, nutritious diet.

Choose leaner cuts of beef, lamb or pork when you cook. Cut off any fat on the meat before serving if you prefer
