“The profile of Wagyu marbled beef is very beneficial to human health.”
"The mono-unsaturated to saturated fat ratio is higher in wagyu than in other beef, but even the saturated fat contained in Wagyu is different. 40% of it is in a version called stearic acid, which is regarded as having a minimal impact in raising cholesterol levels. It can be described as a healthier type of meat”.
