Why Grass Fed Meat?
Grasslands cover one third of the earth’s surface and are a critical ecosystem for human civilization. Returning cattle and sheep to the land can have multiple benefits including restoring soil microbial diversity and making the land more resilient to flooding and drought. When properly managed, the deep, fertile soils can sequester carbon helping to mitigate the effects of climate change.
All those good greens result in meat with a bold grass fed flavour with a cleaner taste. They also make grass-fed meat higher in healthy fatty acids and some vitamins. Rediscover the tastes and nutritional benefits of foods from animals that have lived in harmony with nature.
- Lower levels of total fat (including saturated fat) and fewer calories.
- Higher levels of omega 3 fatty acids (the heart-friendly fats).
- Healthier ratios of omega 6 (excess levels of which can lead to obesity).
- More carotenoids, including lutein, zeaxanthin, and beta-carotene (antioxidants that can reduce risks of cancer and cataracts).
- Much more conjugated linoleic acid (a potent defence against cancers and cardiovascular disease).
- Higher levels of vitamin E (which boosts our immunity and can lower cardiovascular disease).
In addition, grass-fed foods are a rich source of minerals, folic acids, calcium, potassium, thiamine and riboflavin, all essential for our well-being.
