Community Notes: Happy Birthday Dan E!
Nutrition Notes: Day 35/40. We briefly mentioned grass-fed beef in two previous notes (181001 and 180913), so you already know it’s a preferred/healthier option than conventional (grain fed) beef. But what’s the difference? For the first 6 months or so, all cows consume their mother’s milk. Once they’re weaned off milk, grass-fed cows roam in fields, eating plants and occasional bugs. The result is more nutritious beef that contains higher amounts of two key fatty acids – conjugated linolenic acid (CLA) and omega 3 – and vitamins including vitamin E, vitamin B, magnesium, potassium, and beta carotene. Grain-fed cows are fed grains, corn, and soy, which fattens them up and allows for a higher yield. These cows are confined in tight spaces, and hormones are often used to further boost growth. The cows tend to have more illnesses, resulting in increased antibiotic use. The overall result is a much less nutritious beef that is higher in fat (4x more fat per serving).
One thing to watch out for – the term “grass-fed” is unregulated, so as long as the animal was pasture raised for part of its adult life, it can be labeled grass-fed. The term grass-finished means the cow was grass-fed for the duration of its life. Look for the grass-finished label whenever possible!
