Why Natural Beef?: Nutritional Facts

Nutritional Facts About All Natural Farm Raised Beef

Compared to confined feedlot grain-fed cattle, grass-fed pastured beef is:
  • Two to four times richer in heart healthy omega 3 fatty acids
  • Higher in "good" unsaturated fats and lower in "bad" saturated fats
  • Three to five times higher in CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) content
  • Lower in calories
  • High in Vitamin B complex (niacin, riboflavin, and B12)
  • Rich in zinc, iron, and digestible protein
  • High in all nine essential amino acids
  • High in Vitamin A (as beta carotene) and Vitamin E
  • Virtually devoid of risk of Mad Cow Disease and Foot and Mouth Disease
  • Reduce the risk of E. coli food poisoning
  • Low stress environment keeps the cattle healthier

Grain feeding promotes the growth of dangerous E. coli that is more likely to pass through your stomach and infect your colon. When cattle are fed grass, the amount of dangerous E. coli decreases dramatically. (Microbes Infect 2000 Jan;2(1):45-53)
