Why Akaushi?

Certified Akaushi Beef Difference

In the rolling hills of Texas, a revolution is afoot. Something so extraordinary it could change the way you eat.

Akaushi Japanese Red Cattle

Origination from Kumamoto, Japan

Japanese Red Cattle were developed to withstand the challenging climate and terrain of Kumamoto as well as the discriminating taste of Japanese consumers.

HeartBrand’s Akaushi Beef is both tender and delicious as well one of the healthiest sources of protein you can eat. The great taste and health benefits are unique to Akaushi cattle, so the Beemans have worked diligently to maintain and protect the Akaushi breed. HeartBrand produces source-verified Akaushi beef under rigorous quality guidelines and certified product testing.

Nutritional Facts

“To shed belly fat, it’s good to eat fat–specifically monosaturated fatty acids (MUFAs). When researchers in one study asked women to switch to a 1,600-calorie, high MUFA diet, they lost a third of their belly fat in a month. MUFAs are satiating, so they help you eat fewer poor-quality foods.”

–Dr. David Katz, Director of the Yale Prevention Research Center
