Did you know that some cuts of beef are as lean as a 3-oz. chicken thigh? Here are some other great bits about beef:
- Beef contains 10 essential nutrients, including protein to build strong muscles, iron, which helps your body use oxygen, and zinc to help maintain your immune system.
- A 3-oz. serving of lean beef provides 25 g (about half) of the Daily Value for protein.
- When included as part of a healthy diet, lean beef—such as Top Sirloin— can help reduce the risk of heart disease.
