Why is ostrich meat used in OSTRIM?
The naturally-raised (no antibiotics or stimulants) ostrich meat in OSTRIM is one of nature's best sources of high-protein, low-fat meat. OSTRIM is a USDA inspected health and wellness food that tastes great. In fact, many top athletes, nutritionists, personal trainers and dietitians recommend OSTRIM as a natural source of low-fat meat protein.
How does ostrich compare nutritionally with other meats?
Ostrich compares very favorably nutritionally with other meats as shown on the following Nutritional Value Comparison chart.
How convenient is OSTRIM?
OSTRIM Meat Sticks are ready-to-eat, with no refrigeration or preparation necessary. OSTRIM's special vacuum packaging exceeds the ordinary packaging of other sports nutrition products, thus locking in nutrition, freshness and flavor. Virtually no air is able to penetrate to deteriorate the quality of the food.
Why is OSTRIM so low in carbohydrates?
OSTRIM is scientifically formulated to be near-zero carbohydrates and sugar free. This allows a person following one of the popular high-protein, low-carb diets to eat OSTRIM Meat Sticks and to be more selective regarding his or her carbohydrate sources.
Why does OSTRIM contain nitrite?
For safety and wholesomeness, OSTRIM only contains micrograms of sodium nitrite, just enough to keep the product safe without refrigeration for use anytime. The USDA regulates sodium nitrite which assures that only .001% - .0012% at most are in OSTRIM.
How high is the sodium level in OSTRIM?
OSTRIM has less than half the sodium of most other dry-shelf meat sticks or jerky products. It contains only the minimum amount required for dry-shelf stability. The sodium has been balanced with the potassium to eliminate excess water retention and to help boost energy.
