Healthy, low fat and cholesterol meat
Not only is our award winning lamb tender and tasty, but the Manx Loaghtan breed has been found to be 23 per cent lower in fat and almost 10 per cent lower in cholesterol than commercially reared lamb - making our lamb a healthy, organic choice.
The table is from a study by the Scottish Agricultural Colleges comparing Manx Loaghtan and commercially reared lamb:
|Manx Loaghtan Lamb||Commercial Lamb|
|Per cent of fat||5.0||28|
|Per cent of saturated fatty acids||2.19||13.9|
|Per cent of monounsaturates||1.74||10.8|
|Per cent of polyunsaturates||0.11||1.3|
