A Few Facts About Beef You May Not Know:
- Beef has 8 times more vitamin B12, 6 times more zinc and 2.5 times more iron than a skinless chicken breast.
- A 3 oz. serving of beef provides more than 10 essential nutrients and half of your daily value of protein. Generally from 150 to 170 calories!
- Beef is a nutrient powerhouse in many ways. Aside from being a great source of protein, beef provides essential nutrients in a smaller package than many other proteins. For example, you would need to eat 8 oz. of chicken breast to get the same amount of iron that is in 3 oz. of beef. You would need about 20 oz. of chicken breasts to get the same amount of zinc that is in one serving of beef.
- There are 29 lean cuts of beef with fat content that falls between a skinless chicken breast and a skinless chicken thigh. These cuts include sirloin steak, roast, ground beef, T-bone steaks and brisket, to name a few.
