Advantages of Organic Meat:

Lower Fat:

There are many nutritional differences between commercial meat and pasture raised meat. To start with, pasture raised meat from cattle, lamb, sheep is much lower in fat.

The meat is much leaner and has one third the amount of fat as that from a grain fed animal. It is also studied that grass fed beef has almost the same percentage of fat as that of a skinless chicken breast, wild elk or deer meat.

Grass fed beef is actually said to reduce your "bad" LDL cholesterol levels. As this meat is lower in fat it is also low in calories. Because the fat content is so low producers are looking to increase the amount of marbling in the meat so that consumers can easily be familiar with the products, also the fatter parts of the grass fed meat is leaner than that of the grain fed meat.

Higher Omega 3:

Grass fed meat has two to four times the amount of Omega 3 fatty acids than the meat from grain fed animals. Omega 3 are called "good" fatty acids as they play an important role in every cell of the body.

Omega 3 fatty acids are the most heart friendly and so people who have ample amounts of these fats in their diet are less likely to have high blood pressure or irregular heart beat. It is also studied that they are almost 50% less likely to get a heart attack.
