Tastes so great, you might not know it's a healthy choice
 
Asian Duck Breast SaladHere's some great news: you don't have to sacrifice flavor to make a healthy choice!  And did you know that duck fat has similar health benefits to olive oil and other unsaturated fats?

Even though our White Pekin duck breast is comparable in fat and calories to a skinless chicken or turkey breast, it has a rich, bold flavor.  Through our natural breeding and feeding programs, Maple Leaf Farms duck has less fat and more lean meat than ever before. Read more about our quality control methods here.

Maple Leaf Farms shows our concern for your healthy lifestyle by providing you with cooking methods that help reduce the fat content of the finished dish. For example, by scoring a duck breast then searing it on the scored side, you can eliminate up to 70% of the fat, while crisping the skin and adding to the distinct flavor of the meat. For other cooking tips and tricks, visit our cooking information page.

The fact is, duck fits well into your healthy lifestyle, so you can enjoy its rich flavor without a moment's guilt.
