Are you interested in helping the environment while maintaining your weight? NutriaSystems products may be just what you have been looking for. Introduced by Cajun Coypu Company in Port Arthur, Texas, NutriaSystems is a complete meal delivery program that provides its customers with a balanced diet in prepackaged, easy to prepare meals.
According to information on the company’s website, free-range nutria that are captured exclusively in Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana are used in all the company’s food products and most of its automotive lubricants and janitorial supplies. (Shown here is a nutria filet casserole prepared with spring vegetables.)
“The biology of the nutria species,” says Hershel Pinsweep, spokesman for NutriaSystems, “allows it to reproduce rapidly, making it a sustainable source of lean meat that is high in protein and low in cholesterol.”
Pinsweep sites recent studies completed at the University of Louisiana at Shreveport that have shown that a diet that includes nutria meat eaten at least three times a week can lead to increases in HDL (high-density lipoprotein), decreases in LDL (low-density lipoprotein) and significant loss of weight.*
In addressing consumer hesitancy to dine on large, swamp-living rodents, Pinsweep said, “People in South America have been eating guinea pigs for centuries, and they’re a whole lot cuter than nutria.”
