Our meat TESTS great !
Recent tests carried out by ALS Laboratories Ltd on 21st January 2021 show our beef has a ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 of 1.16 to 1 and our lamb has a ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 of 1.13 to 1
Simply incredible ratios!
Evidence suggests a healthy diet should aim for a Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio no higher than 4 to 1 and a lower ratio is Simply amazing.
In recent years there has been increasing scientific evidence of the benefits of eating pasture-raised and grass-fed meat. These are not just limited to animal welfare and the environment, but also include health benefits for humans.
Meat from animals fed only on a grass diet tends to be lower in total fat and have a higher level of ‘good fats’ such as Omega-3 fatty acids.
The fat from grass-finished beef may have a yellowish appearance from the elevated carotenoid content (precursor to Vitamin A).
Several studies suggest that grass-based diets elevate precursors for Vitamin A and E, as well as cancer fighting antioxidants. In all cases, in these studies the grass-fed ratio was better than the recommended level of 4 to 1, while most of the grain-fed were well above this level.
At the onset of the industrial revolution 140 years ago, there was a marked shift in the ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 fatty acids in human diets. Consumption of Omega 6 fats increased at the expense of Omega 3 fats.
