The food we eat and how it has been treated can make a big difference in our diets and our ecosystems. Humanely raised, free roaming animals tend to have higher amounts of Vitamin A and E precursors, as well as antioxidants. Plus, they are more nutritious. For instance, grass-fed cows have 50% more vitamins and higher levels of cancer-fighting conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) as compared to confinement cows, which are grain fed and given hormones to increase their weight to yield more meat. Often, these measures are used to increase profit. In many cases, animals are often overweight and have difficulty breathing. This can be incredibly stressful for the animal and can result in aggressive behavior.
When confined, animals don’t have access to sunlight or sufficient fresh air, resulting in higher bacterial contamination and poor health. And it doesn’t just affect animals – many of the bacteria are dangerous to humans as well.
Can you imagine providing your family with this kind of meat?
Thus, it is critical to find out where your food comes from. It is important to research and make sure the food you provide to your family, is of the best quality. At Crescent Foods, we pride on ourselves to provide:
