What Are The Health Benefits?

Pastured meat is:

  • Lower in total fat with more "good" fats and fewer "bad" fats
  • Higher in beta-carotene
  • Higher in vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol)
  • Higher in the B-vitamins thiamin and riboflavin
  • Higher in the minerals calcium, magnesium and potassium
  • Higher in total omega-3s
  • Has a healthier ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids (1.65 vs. 4.84)
  • Higher in CLA (cis-9 trans-11), a potential cancer fighter
  • Higher in vaccenic acid (which can be transformed into CLA)
  • Lower in the saturated fats linked with heart disease
