Why Grass-Fed, Grass-Finished Beef?
Research has shown that finishing cattle on a grass fed diet provides deeper genuine meat flavour, and distinct health benefits for consumers that include:
• Higher in Vitamin A and E: powerful antioxidants that support healthy vision, skin, bones and other tissues in the body.
• Two to three times more conjugated linoleic acid: a healthy fat that’s been tied to improved immunity and anti-inflammation.
• Higher concentration of omega-3 fatty acids: essential fatty acids that have been associated with reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, cognitive decline, and other conditions.
• More desirable omega-6 to omega-3 ratio: Health professionals suggest that a healthy diet consists of 1 to 4 times more omega-6 fatty acids than omega-3 fatty acids. While essential for normal body function, excess amounts of omega-6 can cause inflammation in the body. Studies have shown that grass fed beef repeatedly falls within the healthy 3:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids.
