View Lipid Study on HSB Beef
Grass-fed beef not only meets consumer taste expectations, but also has substantially less fat than grain-fed meat. In addition, the type of fats found in grass-fed are healthier. For example, the meat has more beneficial omega-3 fatty acids and fewer omega-6, which is believed to promote heart disease. People with a diet rich in omega-3 are less likely to suffer from depression, schizophrenia, attention deficit disorder, and Alzheimer’s disease, according to a growing body of research. In addition, grass-fed meat contains more beta-carotene, vitamin E, and CLA, another “good” fat.
“A lot of people used to think you had to sacrifice taste for what’s good for you, but that’s just not the case any more.”
