In This video Allison Aubrey, who is a correspondent for NPR News, explores the reasons for the rapid rise in demand for Grass fed beef.
She starts out by examining what cows eat.
Grass fed cows eat grass which is high in Omega 3 fatty acid, which is the same heart healthy fat found in fish.
She references a study that found that meat from Grass fed cattle have about twice the Omega 3 as corn fed cattle.
Ms Aubrey also pointed out at Grass fed cattle tend to get more exercise than Corn fed and are leaner and weigh a couple hundred pounds less at slaughter.
This means less fat for the consumer.
Then the test, using a recipe from America’s Test Kitchen for Pan-Seared Sirloin Allison prepared two cuts of beef, one grass fed and on corn fed.
Both were cooked and served up for tasting by two additional members of NPR.
