Thanks to Texas Longhorn beef, today’s health-conscious consumer doesn’t have to avoid tender, juicy burgers. Not only is Longhorn beef leaner than that of other breeds, it is also lower in saturated fats. The flavorful Longhorn beef has less cholesterol and calories than chicken. Good news for healthy eating!
Including lean beef in a heart-healthy diet can positively impact blood cholesterol levels. Studies have shown that eating lean beef can help increase “good” cholesterol and reduce “bad” cholesterol in people with elevated cholesterol levels.

Beef is the number-one source of protein, zinc, and vitamin B12, and the third-best source of iron in the food supply. You’d have to eat almost 12 cans of tuna to get the equivalent amount of zinc in one 3-oz. serving of beef. It takes seven chicken breasts to equal the vitamin B12 in one 3-oz. serving of beef. Beef is also a good source of selenium, providing 23% to 30% of the recommended daily allowance for men and women. Recent research has found that selenium may reduce the risk of heart disease and certain types of cancer (such as prostate) as well as enhance the body’s ability to fight infections.
Lean beef is good for you—and the key word is ‘lean.’ A heart patient can eat steak at every meal if it is in the right proportions. Longhorn meat on the average contains 10% less saturated fat than that of other cattle. That puts lean Longhorn beef on par with skinned boneless white meat of chicken and that may come as a surprise to many dieticians.”
