More than just meat – The qualities of beef

Beef contains varying amounts of fat, including CLA.

Including a balanced diet in your daily routine is essential for a healthy lifestyle and immune system, but do you really understand the role beef plays in your diet? Read on to learn about the important nutritional qualities of beef.

– Protein
Quality beef is the best source of protein – with all the essential amino acids to promote muscle maintenance and growth. Beef contains varying amounts of fat, including CLA, which has been linked to health benefits.

– Source of CLA
Quality beef is one of the best dietary sources of CLA (conjugated linoleic acid). This acid can fight against cancer, asthma, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and triglycerides, osteoporosis, inflammation, and can even alter body composition.

– Omega 3
Quality means higher Omega 3 and lower Omega 6. Omega 3 and Omega 6 are antagonistic, competing for storage space in cell membranes. Omega 3s signal anti-inflammatory or neutral messengers, while Omega 6s signal inflammatory messengers.

The above mentioned qualities are all needed to keep your body in good health, together with the right mix of carbohydrates, fruits and vegetables. At Sparta we care about the quality of meat that we deliver to our customers, as we understand our responsibility to ensure that our products contain all the aforementioned nutrients to keep our community healthy. This is why we adhere to all these rigorous quality standards, apart from delivering great-tasting beef.
