Grass-fed foods benefits?


Grass-fed foods, particularly from ruminants like cows, provide specific nutritional benefits. These foods are notable for containing healthy trans fats, namely certain omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in a trans isomer form. These healthy trans fats are a result of the ruminants' unique digestive processes and are beneficial for human health. Furthermore, consuming products from grass-fed animals, such as butter, cheese, milk, and meat, can help maintain a healthy ratio of important hormones like testosterone and estrogen, due to the omega content and overall nutrient profile of these foods 1.

In addition to their health benefits, grass-fed meat products are often produced in a way that benefits the environment. Practices like regenerative agriculture used in grass-fed farming can make meat production climate positive and carbon negative, adding an environmental incentive to choose these products 2.
