Why is New Zealand Lamb different? 

New Zealand lamb is raised naturally all year round on lush green pastures in the New Zealand countryside. Like Australian lamb, it is rich in nutrients, so just a small portion contains a high concentration of vitamins and minerals, which are essential for maintaining your health 

  • Lamb from New Zealand is high in protein, B vitamins, zinc and iron, all of which are necessary for a healthy, balanced diet. At the same time, it also is relatively low in calories, fat and cholesterol. In fact, lamb can be included in a diet designed to lower blood cholesterol.

A four ounce serving of New Zealand Lamb provides:

  •   At least 25 percent of protein (Recommended Daily Allowance)
  •   All essential amino acids
  •   About 0.2 ounces saturated fat and 0.14 ounces of polyunsaturated fat
  •   About 50 mg of cholesterol
  •   About 220 Kcal of energy
  •   A rich source of B vitamins, especially B12 and niacin
  •   A good source of iron and zinc

​In New Zealand, sheep are classified very specifically, not all sheep is considered lamb. The breakdown is as follows:

  •   Lamb — a young sheep under 12 months of age which does not have any permanent incisor teeth in wear
  •   Hogget — a sheep of either sex having no more than two permanent incisors in wear
  •   Mutton — a female (ewe) or castrated male (wether) sheep having more than two permanent incisors in wear.
