How Does Beef Compare?

How Does Beef Compare?

When it comes to fat, lean beef compares favourably to chicken and fish. About half of the total fat in beef is in the form of monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA). And about 30% of the saturated fatty acids (SFA) in beef are in the form of stearic acid which does not raise LDL blood cholesterol.
