Many people chose to purchase marbled beef simply because it tastes better. Marbled beef retains its juiciness and its tenderness. Meat without a good deal of marbling (or fat) is less flavorful. In recent years, many people have begun to think that animal fat is the reason for the rise in obesity and disease and they are only buying lean cuts of beef. However, we should remember that throughout history people have eaten meat and they did not suffer with weight issues or disease like we do today. So, what has changed?
The answer is in how cattle are being raised today. Commercial beef is fed unnatural diets and they are pumped full of growth hormones and antibiotics. These products are stored in the animal's fat. When you eat these animals, you are getting the chemicals the animal ingested, too.
If you want to eat a quality piece of marbled meat that is good for you and which has the “good fat” you need, you should stick with free range, grass fed or organic beef. This is the type of meat our ancestors consumed. These meats are full of CLA which can help you lose weight, boost your immune system and keep your heart healthy.
