Grass feeding is a fairly new practice to most us. But more people are learning that 100% grass-fed beef makes for a high quality product. When beef comes from 100% grass-fed cows, it is richer in beta-carotene, CLA, omega-3 fats, and Vitamin E. In addition, the risks of feed being contaminated are lower, making it safer to eat.
This beef is lower in fat, which makes the various cuts of beef you can get healthy. The cuts of beef best are bottom round, eye of round, flank, top round, and strip. 100% grass-fed beef contains as much as two times amount of beta-carotene and lutein than conventionally fed beef does. And this is true if the beef had to be silage-fed during the winter.
100% grass-fed beef has 500 to 800 milligrams of conjugated linoleic acid in a four ounceserving, 3 times greater than what is found in non-grass-fed beef. Depending on the pastures the beef have been raised in, the omega-3 fat can vary. Four ounces of grass-fed beef will have over 3 grams of total omega-3 fats.
