Q:  Are lamb chops healthy?

A:  Lamb is a source of red meat which forms part of a healthy balanced diet. Lean lamb has a lower fat content, making it a healthier choice. Lamb is a type of red meat which contains high-quality protein. It’s also low in carbohydrates as well as saturated fat (the bad type of fat). Lamb also has essential vitamins (micronutrients) such as Vitamin B12, Niacin, Zinc, Phosphorous and Iron. It’s therefore a perfect protein-rich meat forming part of a healthy, balanced diet.

Q: Can lamb be eaten rare?

A: Yes. It’s safe to eat lamb rare – as long as the outside has been cooked. The reason for this is that if there’s any bacteria on the meat, it’s usually on the outside. However, ground lamb should be cooked at a minimum temperature of 70 °C.

Q: Are lamb chops a red meat?

A: Yes, lamb chops are a red meat because it contains a high amount of myoglobin, which is a protein in muscle that turns red when combined with oxygen.
