HIGH PROTEIN AND OMEGA 3, LOW CALORIES; PASTURE RAISED
Grass-Fed Beef is much lower in fat than grain fed animals and has about the same fat content as skinless chicken. A product bearing the label “Grass-Fed Beef” denotes that no grain finishing, antibiotics, hormones or animal by-products were ever used in the care and raising of the cattle.
Further “Grass-Fed Beef” have spent their entire lives allowed to fulfill their natural behaviors and basic instincts of grazing at all times, and never be kept confined on feedlots.
The reason that grass-fed animals have more Omega-3s than grain-fed animals is that Omega-3s are formed in the green leaves (specifically the chloroplasts) of plants. Sixty percent of the fat content of grass is a type of Omega-3 fatty acid called alpha-linolenic or LNA.
Grass-Fed Beef contain a rich source of another type of good fat called “conjugated linoleic acid” or CLA. When cattle are raised on fresh pasture alone, their meat can contain as much as five times more CLA than products from animals fed conventional diets.
Grass-Fed Beef is also high in vitamin E. In humans, vitamin E is linked with a lower risk of heart disease and cancer. This potent antioxidant may also have anti-aging properties. Most Americans are deficient in vitamin E.
