What is Japanese Wagyu Beef?
If you’ve never had Wagyu before, you will never taste beef the same way after experiencing true luxury from the first to the last bite. Discover its signature marbling and melt-in-your-mouth tenderness.
Why is Japanese Wagyu So Special?
The Japanese government holds Wagyu cattle to the strictest standards in the world. Each head of cattle has their nose print taken after birth to keep track of its lineage. These types of cattle started as beasts of burden. Once it was discovered that their meat had such amazing fat that allowed it to braise from the inside out, the cows were no longer prized just for their physical endurance.
For 600 days, the cows are fed a specialized diet that includes fresh grass, alfalfa and rice straw to ensure consistency and flavor.
Health Benefits of Japanese Wagyu Beef
One of the biggest health myths out there is that all fat is bad. On the contrary, monounsaturated fat can actually lower cholesterol. The intricate and decadent marbling of Japanese Wagyu has a lower cholesterol count than chicken, turkey or Atlantic salmon.
