Lamb Nutrition

Lamb is nutrient-dense so a small serving of lean lamb delivers a large amount of the nutrients important for health. Lean lamb is one of the best-absorbed sources of iron and it is an important source of protein, B group vitamins (including B1, B2, B3, B6 and B12), as well as the essential minerals, iron & zinc. Lamb also contains suprisingly few calories.
