Ground Bison vs. Ground Beef : Is bison really better? Has CONAGRA infiltrated this industry yet?

stuck in Hartford County | May 18, 201003:48 PM     17

Lately, I've been substituting ground bison for ground beef when cooking for our family. The kids don't seem notice any difference. "Experts agree" that it's better for you, so I've been buying the convenient 1 lb. packages of ground bison in the meat section.

Here's my big question: Am I fooling myself? I do realize that ground meat isn't that great for you, but several of our family favorites call for 1 lb of ground beef, and I THINK buffalo is a healthier choice. Or am I wrong? If I can buy it at Super Stop & Shop, it must be mass-produced. And that means CONAGRA LURKS SOMEWHERE IN ITS HISTORY. I'm not a fan of Conagra (and similar conglomerates).

Does anyone know more?
