WHAT IS AKAUSHI BEEF?
Akaushi is one of the four breeds of Japanese cattle that originated from Kumamoto, Japan, and introduced in the United States in 1994. Akaushi cattle, over time, proved to be tolerant in challenging climates and various physiographic locations of Japan. La Fortaleza Beef is committed to preserving Akaushi bloodlines by raising only full-blood, registered Akaushi cattle.
OUR MISSION
With a mission to provide the world the best tasting and nutritional Texas beef through ingenuity, premium genetics, and compassion, our Akaushi cattle are compassionately raised on Fortaleza de Zavala Ranch in La Pryor, Texas. Grass-fed and raised naturally without the use of growth-promoting drugs or hormones. La Fortaleza Beef steers are finished in a feeding program in Hondo, Texas, that utilizes Texas grain to optimize marbling potential. As a result, La Fortaleza Beef has a rich buttery flavor that is guaranteed to stand out against all other beef.
HEALTH BENEFITS
Our cattle accumulate tissue with higher ratios of monounsaturated to saturated fatty acids. Various studies have shown that consumption of higher levels of monounsaturated fats, can aid in decreased risk of coronary heart disease, lower cholesterol, and weight loss. Akaushi beef is also a significant source of oleic acid, which, according to the USDA, is “good for the heart.”
