Grain-fed beef vs. grass-fed beef
The champ: grass-fed beef
Indeed, the grass is greener on the other side. A recent study by California State University researchers determined that grass-fed beef has significantly higher levels of heart-healthy omega-3 fats but lower amounts of saturated fatty acids and inflammation-promoting omega-6 fats. Other perks include more disease-fighting antioxidants such as vitamin E and glutathione. A growing chorus of experts also agrees that animals that nibble on turf have better flavor and texture, and are generally raised more humanely.
