Iron carries oxygen to the brain and muscles. Our Pure South beef has 2 times as much iron as a chicken breast, and 6 times more than spinach. Iron in beef is also in the haem form, so the body can absorb it easier than the iron found in grains.
Zinc is essential for the structure and function of over 50 enzymes in our bodies, and helps fight infections and heal wounds. Pure South beef contains iron that is easily absorbed by our bodies.
Pure South beef is high in vitamins B and D. B12 specifically is found only in animal foods and has many helpful roles in our bodies - including the maintenance of our nervous systems.
Our beef contains as little as 5% fat. Half of this fat is mono-unsaturated, which is more commonly associated with olive oil. The small amount of fat left comprises of essential fatty acids and fat soluble vitamins.
The small amount of polyunsaturated fat in Pure South beef includes omega 3s. These are the same healthy oils as those found in some fish and fish oil supplements. The levels of omega 3 come from the grass-fed nature of our beef.
