Beef: A Wholesome, Nutritious Option

A healthy diet requires protein, iron, healthy fats, complex carbohydrates, and a host of essential vitamins and minerals. Beef is a powerful and healthy way to fuel your body.

Is beef nutritious?
Absolutely. In addition to protein, which keeps you energized and regulates body processes, beef is an excellent source of B vitamins, including riboflavin and thiamin, which promote growth and maintain health. Beef is also a great source of Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA), a fatty acid that may play a role in cancer prevention and heart health.

Why should I choose beef?
Serving for serving, there are few foods that match the protein, iron and zinc offered by a serving of beef. Protein is involved in virtually all of the body’s cell functions. Iron helps carry oxygen to your cells, and aids in brain development. Zinc is an essential mineral that helps your immune system and metabolism function.

Is beef safe to eat?
Safety begins with healthy animals, and no one cares more than farmers and ranchers. The beef they raise and sell to restaurants and grocery stores is the same beef they feed their own families. Food safety regulations and stringent inspections ensure beef safety from start to the finished steak on your plate. Learn more.
