Why Grass-Fed Beef Tastes Better

A Run-down on the Benefits Regarding Your Taste Buds

Serious debates exist regarding the taste between grass-fed cattle and those that are grain-fed for human consumption. Have you ever wondered about the difference in the taste and whether it is alarmingly apparent or not? Here are a few reasons why grass-fed beef is the better choice both quality and taste-wise.

Health Benefits

Grass-fed beef is known to be higher in heart-healthy Omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins A and E, antioxidants and generally lower in overall fat. Grass-fed cattle also deal with fewer instances of needing hormones to fatten them up to be ready to a sooner and, in turn, they require fewer antibiotics to combat any adverse side effects these additional, unnecessary hormones may cause. As an added bonus the, cows that are able to graze and grow on their own have a more natural and less artificial taste after they are prepared. John Henry’s never uses any Hormones or Antibiotics on our animals.

Lean Quality

Cattle can eat grasses and convert it to lean muscle (which is what we are eating), unlike corn and grain diets that are much harder for them to convert into healthy tissue. This grass diet conversion allows the meat to have a leaner, cleaner quality with virtually no grimy or grisly by-product apparent in the end product. At the heart of this lean quality is the ability of the animal to move around freely in pastures giving it the exercise it needs to build a healthy muscle quality tone.

Clean Conscious

This benefit is two-fold. Not only are you more aware of the lack of by-products that will allow the beef you are consuming to be cleaner, but your conscious can rest easy about the cleanliness of the meat itself as After all, we all want to know what is going into our bodies and grass-fed beef allows you to examine your fields and crops and know what your cattle are grazing on.

As you can see, grass-fed beef has many benefits that outweigh the opposition.  Health benefits, lean quality, and cleaner meat are the main stand-out reasons. You can definitely notice the superior quality of grass-fed beef you are eating when It comes to knowing that they are fed their natural pastoral diets.  If you haven’t already, give it a try and you won’t look back.
