Because Grass-Fed beef actually tastes like beef is supposed to taste. The flavor, look, smell, and texture of Grass-Fed beef differs slightly from grain-fed beef, it is less bland. Most enjoy it immediately because of its fuller, richer flavour. Those who grew up in Europe may delight in rediscovering the flavour they remember.
A big bonus is that for four pounds of cooked ground beef only about six ounces of fat drain off. The fat is a completely different color than grain-fed beef. It is nearly clear and much thinner. This is an interesting physical confirmation of the huge difference there is in the fat between these two types of food.
Besides the great flavour, a lot of research supports this recommendation in various ways. In summary: The natural diet for ruminant animals, such as cattle, is grass. When left to feed on grass-only diets, levels of conjugated linoleic acid, or CLA are three to five times more than those fed grain-based diets. And that's just for starters. A joint effort between the USDA and Clemson University researchers in 2009 determined a total of 10 key areas where Grass-Fed beef is better than grain-fed for human health:
Grass-fed beef compared with other types of meat.

A new website helps consumers understand natural trans fats. As a result of new research, the site presents fresh thinking on trans fats – from health recommendations, to food choices to nutrition labeling. While a growing amount of evidence continues to suggest that industrial trans fats are a major threat and should be avoided, new research has uncovered that not all trans fats are created equal. A separate family of "natural trans fats" has been identified and is found in meat and milk from ruminant animals. Natural trans fats are not harmful and may in fact have health-enhancing potential.
