What Is GreenFed™?
Beyond Organic cattle are not grassfed-they’re greenfed!
GreenFed™ is a more technically correct term. In fact, Beyond Organic cattle eat only what comes out of the ground, including grasses, legumes,
forbs and herbs, which are known collectively as forage.
Beyond Organic cattle do not eat grains. Additionally, Beyond Organic cattle are fed
sustainably, which is good for them, for you and for the environment.
What are the advantages of GreenFed?
Green fed animals consume their natural diet—the diet they were created for. As compared to grain fed, conventional feedlot beef or conventional
dairy, Green fed products have been shown to be higher in beta carotene (Vitamin A) and other antioxidant vitamins, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA)
and omega-3 fatty acids. Green fed products also tend to be lower in fat, cholesterol and calories.
Additionally, you are supporting a way of life for the animals that is more natural and humane, and as we like to say—better for them, better
for you, and better for the planet.
Lower in Fat and Calories.
Meat from green fed cattle is lower in total fat and can have one third the fat as a similar cut from a grain-fed animal. (Note: Fats from
grain-fed animals can also contain the residues of the chemicals they have ingested.) Green fed beef can have the same amount of fat—good, healthy
fat—as skinless chicken breast.
