Grass fed beef is talked about a lot, especially 100% grass fed. But what does that mean, isn't all beef 100% grass fed? Many people are surprised to hear the answer is no. In fact the majority of cattle raised for consumption spend some of their lives in pastures eating grass, but then are moved to a feedlot for grain-finishing where most of their bulking up occurs.
Why is this? In short- it's more cost effective. Cattle that are “corn-fed”, “grain-fed”, or “corn-finished” are typically fattened up on maize, soy, and other types of feed before slaughter. Because these foods are so high in starch and high in energy, it increases their size, and also gets them there at a much quicker rate. Many are fed on a feed-lot requiring a lot less land to get the same amount of beef products. All of this results in a lower quality, but more inexpensive beef. Thus the reason we see so much of it on our grocery shelves today.
100% grass fed beef is just that, beef from cattle that have primarily been on a forage diet their entire lives. This is a longer (up to 6 to 12 months longer) and more expensive process to follow for cattle farms, but it leads to a higher standard of tenderness and marbling and generally a healthier end product.
While grass fed beef has become more popular in the last couple years, this trend is definitely around to stay as we pay closer attention to our nutritional needs.
100% grass fed beef is becoming more popular because it's seen as a healthier alternative than the more conventional grain-finished beef products. It's typically lower in calories and saturated fat, but higher in healthy fats and protein. Along with the other nutritional benefits, it's also associated with a lower risk of heart disease and stroke due to a higher amount of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids.
You can often tell just by looking at the beef whether it's grass fed as it shows less marbling. The flecks of fat are much more noticeable in a piece of beef that has been grain-finished.
