HOW RED MEAT FITS IN A WEEK OF MEALS
New Zealand grass-fed beef and lamb provide a sustainable and valuable source of nutrients, in particular protein, iron, zinc and vitamin B12. The Ministry of Health recommends eating from a variety of animal and plant proteins every day, which includes lean red meat.
The global recommendation is to enjoy three to four portions of lean red meat per week within a total range of 350-500g cooked weight (700-750g raw weight). In other words, a portion the size of about a deck of cards every second day.
