Is Grass Fed Beef Healthier than Chicken?

When people think of red meat, many automatically associate it with saturated fats and categorise it as being “unhealthy”. As you may have read in our other blogs, grass fed beef is actually super healthy and contains lots of vitamins and minerals which are essential to a balanced diet. (Check out our recent blog on the nutrients in grass fed beef if you want to know more). But let’s compare these nutrients to that of one of the most popular meats out there- Chicken. Many people use chicken to bulk up their meals and it is an easy way to increase your protein intake while keeping calories low. This calorific difference is probably one of the main reasons why people may choose chicken over beef and can be a huge benefit to people looking to lose weight. However, if you are just looking to maintain a healthy, balanced diet, let us explain to you why we believe our grass fed beef is actually healthier than chicken. 

Is Grass Fed Beef Healthier than Chicken?

Beef is a good source of protein, iron, zinc and vitamin b-12, as is chicken. However, what differentiates the two are the amounts of vitamins. In just one portion of beef you get roughly half of your daily protein target and up to 10 essential nutrients. If you are health conscious, then sirloin steak is one of the leanest cuts of beef and therefore is the healthiest. Although, what makes our beef so special here at TX Bar is that our cattle are fed a natural diet of grass, which means the cows have less overall body fat and each cut of beef produced, not just sirloin, have significantly less fat than that of a grain fed cow.  

Another thing that differentiates our grass fed beef and makes it more nutritious than chicken is the presence of CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) in beef. CLA is considered to be one of the best anti-carcinogenic nutrients, which can actually lower the risk of cancer and other illnesses. It also regulates blood sugar and improves insulin function. Chicken contains significantly less CLA, making our grass fed beef a smart choice! 

To summarize- Grass fed beef has more of the following nutrients, making it a healthy choice. 

  • Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA).
  • Omega-3 fatty acids.
  • B-Vitamins.
