Lamb Nutrition Facts

General Information

Lamb is a good source of protein, vitamins, and minerals. Not only that, its protein is nutritionally complete - all 8 essential amino acids are present. Lamb is also high in B vitamins, niacin, zinc, and iron.

In contrast to other meats, lamb doesn't contain much marbling (fat integrated into the meat). This means that, as long as you trim the fat off the sides, you end up with a very lean cut of meat.

Also, around 64% of the fat in lamb is the "good fat" (monosaturated or polyunsaturated).
