Goose is a type of poultry that comes under the ‘white meat’ banner, and it is particularly popular throughout China, Europe, and the Middle East.
- Goose meat is a rich source of many nutrients, and it is particularly high in vitamin B6, phosphorus, and selenium.
- Similar to other poultry options, goose meat (without skin) is very protein-dense.
- Depending on location, it can be difficult to find goose meat for sale.
- Sometimes wild geese can be susceptible to infections which can be transmittable to humans (by touch). However, this should not be an issue with goose meat bought from a store. Also, like with other poultry, cooking will kill any bacteria present.
