Is minced meat good for you?

Meat is a good source of protein, vitamins and minerals such as iron, zinc and B vitamins. It is one of the main sources of vitamin B12, also found in milk. Advice from the Department of Health is to consume healthier meat or meat products, such as lean cuts of meat and lean mince and cut down on processed meat.It’s loaded with nutrients and antioxidants, including vitamin B6, and alpha lipoic acid. These are responsible for creating antibodies and keeping blood sugar levels in check. ~ Erik Baji Treasuryvala
