Meat: nutrition, facts & information

Meat nutrition facts & informationResearch shows that protein helps maintain healthy weight, build muscle and fuel physical activity – all of which play an important role for a healthy lifestyle and disease prevention. It is recommended to consume high quality protein, thereby acquiring all the essential nutrients that your body needs. In fact, lean protein makes it easier to enjoy and incorporate more fruits, vegetables and whole grains in your diet.

Calorie for calorie, beef is one of the most nutrient rich foods for an active and healthy lifestyle. A three-ounce serving of lean beef accounts for less than ten percent of calories to a 2,000 calorie diet. Yet, it is an excellent source of protein, zinc, Vitamin B, iron, selenium and phosphorus.

Iron, zinc and Vitamin B play an essential role in developing and maintaining cognitive ability across the lifecycle. Iron helps deliver oxygen to working muscles, and is required for energy metabolism. Vitamin B helps convert the food that you eat, into energy to fuel activity.

Lamb approximately contains 160 calories per 100 grams and is a good source of protein, iron, zinc, Vitamin B and selenium, all of which facilitate an active and healthy lifestyle. Lamb offers about 25% protein and seven percent fat (which does not include carbohydrates).

Vitamin B and minerals play an essential role in developing and maintaining cognitive ability. While zinc affects the immune function, Vitamin B12 supports the production of red blood cells, niacin provides protection against Alzheimer’s disease and age-related cognitive decline, and selenium helps in the working of thyroid hormone metabolism.
Nutrient Rich Chicken
Chicken meat contains approximately 150 calories per 100 grams. It is an excellent source of protein and Vitamin B, especially B3. Chicken is low in carbohydrates and fats, with moderate protein content. It is high in selenium and very high in niacin. However, keep in mind that its skin is high in saturated fat and should be removed before eating, if required.

Research shows that protein protects against bone loss in older people, and Vitamin B against cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and age-related cognitive decline. Selenium is of fundamental importance to human health in the working of thyroid hormone metabolism, antioxidant defence systems and immune functions.
Facts about Free Range Beef
Most nutritional studies around the world about beef have been about American and European beef, which is raised very differently from most Pakistani beef. Unlike the natural process of raising cattle in Pakistan, beef in developed countries comes from feed-lots, where cattle is kept cramped, fed an unnatural diet of grains and pumped full of hormones and antibiotics. The disadvantages of grain-fed, feed-lot bred beef have led distinguishing consumers in the West to prefer “free-range, grass-fed” beef.

Our selection process for our animals ensured that we get nothing but the finest free-range, grass-fed meat. We do this because there are stark differences between grain-fed and grass-fed animals as highlighted below.

Free range animals are used to produce the world’s finest all-natural beef. They are free from antibiotics and growth hormones and other artificial impurities. Free-range grass-fed animals have 50% less saturated fat than their farm-fed counterparts. Likewise, beef from grass-fed animal is not greasy or laden with fat. Nutritional scientists report that by switching to grass-fed beef you will lose weight, have a healthier heart, reduce your risk of cancer, diabetes, arthritis, and allergies, improve mental clarity, and more.
