Goose Meat is a Highly Nutritious Meat

The goose is a bird of the duck family with webbed feet and white or gray feathers. They are commonly found in Kars and Ardahan cities in Turkey. Geese have an average lifespan of 25-30 years.

The goose is an animal that needs to be fed more freely and in larger areas than other poultry. Because by nature, this animal has to move around.

Goose meat is richer in protein and fat than beef. If geese are fed in a special way, they will grow fat and their liver will grow. For this, a special regime is followed for 30-40 days in early winter. The meat of well-fattened geese becomes very nutritious and full of health.

Goose meat, which has a unique flavor and aroma, is thought to increase body resistance due to its high protein, vitamin, and fat content and is recommended for consumption by weakened bodies.

Goose meat is famous for its flavor and nutrition. Goose dishes, which stood out in the Ottoman palaces with this nutritious feature, have survived to the present day thanks to the transfer of special recipes from generation to generation.
