Basic information about the Young Duck
The trade company Vodňanská drůbež, a.s. is the only duck meat processor in the Czech Republic. The company presents it under the trade mark of the Vodňany Duck (Vodňanská kachna), and thus brings a unique product – the Young Duck – to your table. The Young Duck of Vodňany is a specially developed breed whose typical feature is a high portion of breast muscles. The prolonged fattening period makes its meat more mature, which then acquires a characteristic delicious taste. Currently, the duck is consumed all year round, in portions or as a whole, and its consumption steadily increases thanks to the low fat percentage. It is a well-known fact that duck fat contains unsaturated fatty acids, which decrease the blood pressure as well as the risk of heart diseases.
