When you see a grass-fed label on your meat products, you can be sure that the animals were pasture/range raised and fed a diet of 100-percent forage. Since the animals roam on green pastures, they graze on protein-rich grasses rather than grains. This helps enhance the taste and nutritional value.
Benefits of Eating Grass-Fed
It’s no surprise that a diet rich in greens makes for better health benefits! When compared to grain-fed products, grass-fed products have the following characteristics:
- Lower in total fat
- Higher in beta-carotene
- Higher in vitamin E
- Higher in B vitamins (thiamin and riboflavin)
- Higher in minerals (calcium, magnesium and potassium)
- Higher in total omega-3s
