  • 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.
