Hey, meat lovers! Do you enjoy juicy and tasty steak, hamburger, brisket, or flavorful beef stew? If you answered yes, welcome to Great American Beef, your one stop shop for grass, corn, beet pulp and grain fed Black Angus beef that is not treated with antibiotics or a growth hormone.
Why does this matter? Well, eating Black Angus beef that is fed grass, corn, and beet pulp, and that is not treated with antibiotics, or a growth hormone provides an array of health benefits for you and your family. Here are just a few of them:
– Our grass-fed beef has less fat and calories than conventional beef that comes from cows that are just grain fed. Here is something to consider. Overall grass-fed beef has about 30% less fat and 100 fewer calories per serving than grain-fed beef. As a result, this can help you maintain a healthy weight, and that lowers your risk of heart disease and diabetes.
– Studies have shown that grass fed beef has more omega-3 fatty acids than conventional beef. Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for your brain and heart health, and a strong immune system. Omega- 3 fatty acids also contribute to reduced joint inflammation and lower blood pressure. In general, grass-fed beef has up to five times more omega-3 fatty acids than grain-fed beef.
– Grass fed beef generally has more antioxidants than conventional beef. Antioxidants are substances that protect your cells from damage caused by free radicals, a cancer-causing agent. They can also boost your immune system and slow the aging process and play a role in the prevention of numerous chronic diseases. Grass-fed beef has higher levels of antioxidants such as vitamin E, beta-carotene, and glutathione than grain-fed beef.
– Grain-fed cattle are more prone to diseases and infections due to the crowded and stressful conditions they live in. And as a result, herds often require the use of antibiotics and hormones. Antibiotics and growth hormones can cause increased antibiotic resistance and even hormonal imbalance in humans. This increases the chances of bacterial infections such as E. coli and salmonella in the meat. Grass-fed beef is free of these substances and has lower levels of harmful bacteria than grain-fed beef.
As a bonus our grass-fed beef is from Wyoming. The dry and cold climate dramatically reduces the risk of parasites and diseases that can affect cattle. And that is another reason that our grass-fed cattle have stronger immune systems, and do not need antibiotics or added hormones.
Black Angus beef is one of the most popular and widely available types of beef in the United States. But remember, not all this beef is equal in quality.
So, next time you crave a delicious burger or a succulent steak, look for Great American beef. You will notice the difference with the first bite. We are confident that you will not only enjoy the taste, but also the health benefits of this natural and nutritious meat.
