NEW TO WAGYU
What is Wagyu?
Wagyu is a bovine breed originating from Japan. In Japanese, ‘Wa’ means our, and ‘gyu’ means cattle. Wagyu cattle are known for their ability to produce highly marbled beef. Tenderness, flavor, and juiciness are enhanced due to the marbling present in wagyu beef.
Wagyu is superior when it comes to taste and tenderness, and it also consists of beneficial fatty acids that differ from the fatty compositions in other cattle breeds. Wagyu is known for the fine intra-muscular fat called marbling, an important element for meat taste and tenderness. The consistent and subtle marbling has numerous advantages when prepared correctly and consumed in moderation as part of a healthy and balanced lifestyle. The juiciness and flavor profile of Wagyu beef is prominent when cooked correctly, as the marbling bastes the meat from the inside. The low melting point of Wagyu fat pronounces its flavour, juiciness, and tenderness – creating a melt-in-the-mouth experience.
It is important to understand the structural differences between Wagyu and an ordinary carcass. This allows you to enjoy lesser-known cuts from the overdeveloped forequarter that Wagyu presents. Try these cuts, you and your wallet will be pleasantly surprised: flat iron, denver, tri-tip, flank, bavette, and chuck eye.
Every carcass sold as Wagyu must be certified by the South African Certified Wagyu Board which upholds all associates to stringent regulations. The most important of which is traceability.

WHAT ARE THE HEALTH BENEFITS?
It is important to understand which type of dietary fat is necessary to lead a healthy life. Marbled Wagyu beef contains higher levels of mono-unsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) than other beef as a result of high levels of oleic acid. The MUFAs increases the shelf life of the beef with a long-lasting flavour. The MUFAs are also heart-healthy and studies have shown that Wagyu beef can decrease LDL-cholesterol and increase HDL-cholesterol, which is the good cholesterol. The high oleic acid in Wagyu beef reportedly also lowers risk factors for cardiovascular diseases. MUFAs found in high-quality Wagyu beef helps to improve the body’s ability to fight infection, inflammation, and cardio diseases while boosting the immune system.
