Hearty and Heart Healthy

Well marbeled cut of beef steak on a butcher block cutting board with seasonings and utensils

Have you ever heard the phrase, “Good, but not good for you”? What a frustrating concept! We don’t know about you, but we like to enjoy great-tasting food without the worry of negative health effects later on. Why compromise your health for something as juicy and decadent as a wonderfully marbled, responsibly raised, Angus-Akaushi steak?

Good and Good for You

Well, my friends, now you don’t have to! We at Bar C Meat Company pride ourselves on bringing our customers the highest quality, responsibly raised, Angus-Akaushi beef, custom butchered to your liking. What makes our beef stand out from the rest of the pack is our superior Angus genetics mixed with the Akaushi bloodline. Akaushi cattle are known for their high percentage of intramuscular fat (IMF) that creates intense, beautiful marbling in their steaks. This IMF is what gives the beef its juiciness and flavor. In most other breeds of cattle, the IMF is known to have a high concentration of unhealthy saturated fat. However, not so with Akaushi cattle. Through genetics and a carefully managed diet, Akaushi cattle produce an IMF with a higher content of monounsaturated fat relative to saturated fat. These monounsaturated fats are touted as “Heart Healthy” and can help lower the risk for heart disease and other cardiovascular ailments. Another added benefit of Akaushi beef is its high concentration of oleic acid. Oleic acid is another heart-healthy compound mostly found in olive oil and is credited with promoting healthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Bar C Meat Company has combined over 25 years of Angus genetics with Akaushi cattle to produce a superior product that you can feel good about enjoying. As you can see, “good” and “good for you” don’t have to be mutually exclusive. Bar C Meat Company is excited to bring this product to customers all over Missouri and beyond.
