If you’re looking for a family-friendly red meat that is tasty, healthy, nutritious, easy to cook and sustainably sourced look no further than kangaroo. Here’s a few of the reasons why...
Kangaroos are never farmed. They’re sourced from their natural environment – roaming freely across expansive pastoral areas of Australia. This means that the meat that ends up on your plate is free from human intervention, antibiotics, added growth hormones, or chemicals.
When it comes to high-quality protein, kangaroo meat is definitely at the top of the list. A 150g serving of kangaroo fillet (pre-cooked) provides an average adult with 66% of their daily protein needs. That’s two thirds of your protein needs from one tasty meal.
Most people associate omega-3 fats with fish, but kangaroo meat is also a great source. More specifically, kangaroo meat contains the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA, which work together to support heart health.
Kangaroo meat is a great source of must-have minerals. It is packed with iron which helps keep our immune system strong, wards off fatigue and tiredness, helps us to produce energy, and plays an important role in transporting oxygen around the body. If you’re an adult, you’ll meet one third of your daily iron needs every time you tuck into a delicious 150g kangaroo steak.
Zinc is another mineral which is in abundance in kangaroo meat. It’s essential for growth and development, wound healing, and for a strong immune system. Zinc works to keep us looking good too by maintaining our hair and nails and protecting our cells from damage.
All our kangaroo products are prepared in a gluten free processing facility.

Kangaroos are super active and graze on natural foliage, which produces a lean, high-quality meat, which in turn gives you plenty of energy.
Energy (kilojoules) per 100g of raw meat
|Total fat (g)||1.0||1.4||6.3||5.8||1.6|
|Trans fat (g)||<0.1||0.1||n/z||n/a||n/a|
With less than 2% fat, kangaroo is one of the healthiest meat choices you can make. And the fats that are there are the ones we want – beneficial unsaturated fats, including monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. What you won’t find is those undesirable saturated fats and trans fats.
Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA)
You may not have heard of it before, but CLA is an omega-6 fatty acid which has been shown to benefit our well being in multiple ways. A 150g serving of kangaroo fillet contains on average 11mg CLA – another reason to add it to your weekly meals.
Kangaroo meat is a strong source of valuable B-group vitamins. In fact, a 150g serving of kangaroo loin fillet (pre-cooked) provides:
- Well over 100% of the Recommended Dietary Intake (RDI) for VITAMIN B12 which helps produce red blood cells and maintain the nervous and immune system
- An impressive 80% of the RDI for VITAMIN B6 which helps to release energy from the protein we eat
- Two thirds (63%) of the RDI for NIACIN which helps to release energy from food and reduce fatigue
- Over one third (36%) of the RDI for RIBOFLAVIN. Which plays a role in transporting iron around the body
- Almost one third (30%) of the RDI for THIAMIN, axB-group vitamin necessary for normal energy production
