As well as being one of the good things in life and a major source of pleasure, meat is also one of our most important sources of nutrition. The body needs a range of different nutrients for good health. The best way of getting them is to eat a well-balanced and varied diet. Meat contains many of the nutrients essential to humans, such as high-quality protein, iron, zinc, selenium and B vitamins. We are convinced that meat that has been produced as naturally as possible is also the best choice for health: if the animals are healthy, then we will be too. This is supported by a number of recent scientific studies. Animals that are able to graze freely and that only eat grass produce meat with a low fat content and a high proportion of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids, which are also found in oily fish, have a number of documented health benefits such as lowering lipids, having a positive impact on cardiovascular disease, having an anti-inflammatory effect, and supporting good mental health and the development of the brain and nervous system in children. Iron Meat is rich in iron, and iron in this form that is more readily absorbed by the body than iron in other products. Protein Protein is needed to enable the body to build and replace worn-out cells and to produce a large number of important substances in the body. Animal products such as meat, fish, eggs and milk contain plentiful quantities of protein. Protein from meat makes you feel full for a long time and contains few calories, which is the secret behind the Atkins Diet. Meat is lean Meat is a lean food, particularly lamb and beef. Meat also has the advantage that most of the fat is visible so it is easy to cut away. Meat with the fat cut off contains only 2-3% fat. The fat content is further reduced by approx. 15% when the meat is cooked. The fat composition in meat is much better than many people think: roughly half the fat in beef, pork and lamb is unsaturated fat (i.e. polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat). A large number of Naturkött® products now display the Swedish keyhole symbol. Meat and allergies It is rare for meat to trigger allergic reactions.
