Discover the health benefits of premium red meat
Meat is a fantastic source of protein that offers the human body a number of advantages and health benefits, but do you know what to look for when evaluating the meat quality offered by your local supermarkets and butcher shops?
Meat varies in quality depending on where it is produced, how it was grown and how it was treated throughout its life.
Silver Fern Farms, a well-known and reputable company that sells red meat in the UAE, has established itself as New Zealand’s leading supplier of top-quality beef and lamb for export to more than 60 nations. It is a business made up of proud, committed farmers and food industry professionals who produce goodness from the farms the world needs.
In New Zealand, the year-round growth of lush, green pastures is fuelled by the temperature, clean air and ample supply of fresh water. The animals are reared all year round with the freedom to roam and graze as nature intended and eat and behave as they would naturally, which significantly lowers stress, improves animal welfare, and eventually produces meat that is more delicate and of higher quality.
Animals that are fed a diet high in grass, as opposed to grain as so many are now, grow robust and well. The outcome is meat that is consistently tasty, has a unique flavour, is leaner, has a finer texture, and is more nutrient-dense for human consumption. Grass-fed meat has less saturated fat and more vitamins A and E, conjugated linoleic acid, and omega-3 fatty acids than meat raised on grains.
In everything Silver Fern Farms does, sustainability is ingrained. To ensure that they do the right thing for their customers, who are becoming more and more concerned with the sustainability of their red meat, their commitment and follow-through are crucial. The company has committed to a number of audacious projects to advance its vision, make it a reality, and establish Silver Fern Farms as a pioneer in environmentally friendly food production.
Some of the benefits of grass-fed animals include:
- Leaner meat.
- Lower in total fat, saturated fats and has fewer calories than grain-fed meat.
- Higher in antioxidants including vitamin A and E.
- Endorsed by Keto, Paleo, and clean eating diets as a more nutrient dense and natural protein source.
- Animals are free to roam and graze as they like, all year round, as nature intended.
- Farmers optimize livestock to match the natural grass growth curve.
Silver Fern Farms meats are currently available at Carrefour, Lulu Hypermarket, Prime Gourmet and La Carne in Abu Dhabi.
