Read on to learn more about the benefits of grass-fed beef and why it’s the ideal snack for fueling your body for any activity.
Benefits of Grass-Fed Beef
Did you know that the way cows are fed can have a major effect on the nutrient composition of their beef? Many studies have shown that the nutrients in beef can vary depending on what cows eat!
In the world of commercial beef, there are often two types of cattle: grass-fed and grain-fed. Of course, there are nuances between these two feeding methods, and they are not black and white. However, for the sake of this article, we will focus solely on comparing the grass vs grain input in relation to the commercial output of beef.
While beef is a great source of vitamins and nutrients no matter what, there are some added benefits to choosing grass-fed beef over grain-fed beef, such as:
- Grass-fed beef has been found to be higher in vitamins A, E, and other antioxidants compared to grain-fed beef.
- Grass-fed beef has significantly lower levels of saturated fat compared to grain-fed beef. In fact, replacing saturated fat in grain-fed beef with the unsaturated fat in grass-fed beef has been proven to reduce your risk of heart diseases.
- Grass-fed beef contains two to six times more Omega-3 fatty acids than feed-lot beef.
As you can see, making the switch to grass-fed beef for your snacks and meals can be good for your overall health.
