The unique characteristics of Japanese Wagyu cattle (better known as Kobe Beef cattle) are what makes it the finest beef in the world. Wagyu are known for intense marbling and a buttery taste; of course marbling is fat and fat is bad right? Well some fats are, but we actually need good fats in our diet plus fat makes everything taste better. Wagyu cattle, specifically the Tajima Bloodline Wagyu Cattle, are the only bloodline used in Japan to produce Kobe Beef have been studied by Texas A and M University and the results were astounding; this Wagyu bloodline is 30% higher in mono unsaturated fats and the remaining fat is high in stearic acid, which is a healthy type of fat. So not only do you get the juiciest, most buttery steak known to man you also get a reasonably healthy meal out of it.

There are some journalists who have been trying to slander the Wagyu cattle in America, saying that Americans can't possibly raise the same Wagyu cattle they do in Japan to make Kobe beef and get a similar product. Well this is ridiculous. They have obviously never tried high quality American Wagyu beef or researched the facts or they could not possibly say that. Either the journalists did not thoroughly research both sides of the issue or possibly they have another agenda against American Wagyu.

Of course there may be a few ranchers selling Wagyu that is not up to par (as with anything), but for the most part what I have found is that 98% of Wagyu ranchers produce high quality Wagyu beef. It is easy to spot a inferior Wagyu steak, as you will see a noticeable difference in marbling. I have tried a lot of American Wagyu and all the steaks are crazy good and even the Wagyu ground beef is like eating a fine steak burger. It's not like normal ground beef at the store; it has a juicy buttery taste and melts in your mouth you almost can't explain it unless you have tried it.

I hope everyone will try this stuff because if you do you will see why Kobe Beef has become so famous. The cattle are different than typical breeds and it takes many years to raise Wagyu correctly; they are known for their slow growth rates and most are not even butchered until around 36 months of age. Angus cattle grow very quickly and can be butchered around 18 months old but to get this kind of high quality fine beef takes time, like anything good time seems to play a part. I could go on and on about this breed, as its being raised by our American farmers & ranchers here at home. I am totally blown away by the meat and the health benefits that come with it. Check out the site below- they have more info on the breed.

Clarence Birdseye was the first person to invent, develop and commercialize the method of quick freezing food products in convenient packages without changing the original taste. In the year 1923, he invested $7 to acquire an electric fan, a bucket of brine and cakes of ice. With this, he wished to invent and perfect a system through which fresh food packed in waxed cardboard boxes could be flash frozen under high pressure. He later sold his patents and trademarks for $22 million in the year 1929. A year later in 1930 the world saw the arrival of the first quick-frozen vegetables, fruits, sea-food and meat in Springfield, Massachusetts. What Clarence Birdseye started way back in 1923 is now a global multi-billion dollar industry.

Over the decades among the variety of frozen food available in the markets, there has been a considerable increase in the demand for frozen sea-food as fish food consumption has increased globally. According to a report by the World Watch Institute, the global fish production reached an all time high of 154 million tons in 2011. From the total harvest, human consumption is estimate at 130.8 million ton in 2011 which is an increase of 14.4 percent over the last five years. The major reason in such an increasing demand is the growing awareness among consumers of the many health benefits that are associate with sea-food consumption. As is the case of any other perishable food, there is food safety risks associated with sea-food that needs consideration as well. As a consumer, let us take a balanced look at the benefits and risks associated with sea-food consumption.

Sea food is a healthy choice for people of all age groups. It is a rich source of a key nutrient which is essential for the overall growth of infants and children. It is also a rich source of proteins for adults and is low in saturated fats. Seafood is also a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA. These are essential nutrients which promote healthy brain and eye development in children and cut the risk of heart attacks in adults. Oily fish like salmon, sardines etc. are rich sources of DHA and EPA which are essential for pregnant and breastfeeding women.

The most common food safety risk associated with frozen seafood is a food borne illness caused due to microorganisms or naturally occurring toxins. This is caused mainly due to improper methods used in harvesting, handling, storage or preparation of seafood. Apart from this, the growing pollution of our seas is another reason that makes seafood consumption risky, especially if it's a wild-caught fish and not a farm fish. Buying seafood from reputed dealers should considerably cut these risks. Apart from that, make sure that you handle your seafood well after your purchase. You can find a lot of helpful tips online in regards to handling, storing and cooking seafood. Freezing sea-food contributes largely in eliminating the risks of decay and build up of toxins.

The many health benefits associated with seafood outweighs the risks associated with them. Excluding seafood in your diet can have a negative effect on your health and deprive you of the many health benefits associated with it. If proper care is taken, then you can considerably cut the risks associate with seafood. So, albeit requiring a few precautions, find your way to good health with seafood.
