Rare Breed Beef Nutrition

Red meat, such as beef, is an important part of a balanced diet and contains many of the nutrients essential for good health and well-being, as well as for healthy growth and development in children. Red meat and to a lesser extent chicken and fish are the best sources of easily absorbed haem iron. We all need a healthy, balanced, nutritious diet, but certain groups of people may be more at risk of becoming deficient of some of the important nutrients found in lean red meat.
