There are many health benefits of alpaca meat in comparison to the traditional livestock meats. It is the meat of the Andes and one of the healthiest and oldest food sources of the Incan's and pre-Incas, and remains a South American delicacy as well as important daily food source.
Alpaca meat is not only rich in proteins, but also low in fat. It has the lowest level of cholesterol of any meat. It is a mild red meat which is tender, extremely lean and described by some as almost sweet. We find its flavor closest to beef without the fatty aftertaste. Alpaca takes on the flavor of what it's mixed with making it a chef's favorite!
Maine's strict certification and inspection protocol ensures that we can sell alpaca meat to every state in the union. Our cuts come frozen in cryovac packages. We use only naturally raised animals with no growth hormones.
