Beef is part of a satisfying heart-healthy lifestyle. All beef is a natural source of 10 essential nutrients such as protein, iron, zinc and B vitamins. Research shows that lean beef enjoyed as part of a heart-healthy diet and exercises, can help lower cholesterol, lose weight and lower blood pressure. 

What does lean mean?

To be considered lean, a 3-oz serving of cooked beef must have less than 10 grams of total fat, 4.5 grams or less of saturated fat, and less than 95 mg of cholesterol.


"Lean or extra lean beef can be one of the proteins you enjoy in a heart-healthy diet. A recent study1 showed that up to 4-5.5 ounces of lean beef, eaten daily as part of a heart-healthy diet and an active lifestyle, can help lower cholesterol"- Kevin Campbell, MD, Cardiologist
