Good for your health
Pasture-fed meat has:
- Lower total fat levels than meat from grain-fed animals and is also lower in saturated fat content. It has higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids and a lower, more balanced (and healthier) ratio of omega-6:omega-3 fatty acids
- Significantly higher levels of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) than meat from grain-fed animals and higher levels of vaccenic acid, which can be turned into CLA
- Higher vitamin and mineral levels than meat from grain-fed animals. Particularly rich in vitamins A and E, and minerals such as calcium, magnesium and potassium
Many of the health benefits associated with pasture-fed meat decline after only a few weeks of grain feeding.
