the wagyu difference

About the breed

'WAGYU' refers to all Japanese beef cattle, where 'Wa' means Japanese and 'gyu' means cow.

Wagyu were originally draft animals used in agriculture, and were selected for their physical endurance. This selection favored animals with more intra-muscular fat cells – ‘marbling.'

Due to the selective breeding  to store more intramuscular fats, the Wagyu breed produces a superior cut of beef compared to other breeds.  When it comes to beef quality, more intramuscular fat means more marbling - resulting in higher carcass grading.  The majority of Wagyu carcasses grade as prime.  And, in fact, they often times grade above prime - meaning the USDA scale doesn't formally account for such highly marbled beef.

With one bite of Wagyu beef, you will be hooked!  It will be the most tender, flavorful, and rich yet balanced cut of beef you have ever tasted!

Wagyu: the avocado of beef!

Wagyu beef may not be a "healthy fat," but the fat contained within the highly marbled beef is considered to be a "healthier fat." 

Health experts have discovered the mono-unsaturated to saturated fat ratio is higher in Wagyu than in other beef, and the saturated fat contained in Wagyu is different. Forty percent is in a version called stearic acid, which is regarded as having a minimal impact in raising cholesterol levels. The profile of marbled Wagyu beef is more beneficial and healthier to human health.

Wagyu is also higher in a type of fatty acid called conjugated linoleic acid (CLA).  Wagyu beef contain the highest amount of CLA per gram of any foodstuff – about 30% more than other beef breeds – due to higher linoleic acid levels. Foods that are naturally high in CLA have fewer negative health effects.
