You may be wondering why we always mention our beef is sourced from New Zealand.
The reason might surprise you. Virtually ALL beef in Thailand is supplemented one way or another with grains, corn and soy.
New Zealand is one of the last remaining places on earth where the beef is grass-fed and grass finished without the use of growth hormones and antibiotics.
Canterbury, New Zealand
Cows have 4 stomachs to digest grass, their digestion process is long and involves a lot of burping. By adding grains into their diet it throws a spanner in the works and may lead the cow to get obese, sick and changes their nutritional profile.
For example, a grain-fed cow has 3 to 10 times more omega 6 fatty acids but 3 times less omega 3, which makes the meat more inflammatory to eat compared to pasture-raised beef (link below).
Also we know antibiotic resistance can cross cell barriers. What that means is eating a cow that has these resistant bacteria, can carry over to you. And the next time you need antibiotics they may not work as well as you'd like.
That is why we mention our beef is pasture-raised and sourced from New Zealand.
We have several cuts available at our Primal Grocery and only use New Zealand beef in our all Meal Plans. You never have to worry about
