Is venison lower fat than beef?

    Yes. Venison is one of the leanest meats available, containing much less fat and lower cholesterol. Venison contains about 1.6 grams of fat per 100g of meat, while beef can be as high as 12.6 grams. The type of fats present in venison are better for you too: the ratio of polyunsaturated fats to saturated fatty acids is about twice that of beef. Venison is usually more expensive, but it’s quite a healthy meat as well as a tasty one.

    Yes, infact the hunter Dennis Walrod breaks down a comparison of beef pork and venison taking note of a 3.5 ounce cut of loin, tenderloin and round, and then a comparison of the average (in calories). He found that venison (deer) was 50 calories lower than beef and 40 calories lower than the same size serving of pork.

    Usually.  Venison is an extremely lean meat.  It’s hard to find anything leaner than it, actually.  Most cuts of beef have much more fat.
