WHAT IS NATURAL BEEF?
Here at Masami, we go beyond what
the government requirements and
definitions are for beef labeled as “Natural”.
By definition, the United States
Department of Agriculture (USDA) defines
natural as: any meat raised for human consumption
that does not contain additives,
and is minimally processed. Masami Foods
believes consumers want and deserve
more when it comes to “natural” labeled
So what makes Masami beef so
savory, sweet and delicate?
We begin with specific bloodlines that
produce unique muscle fibers and distinct,
flavorful marbling, and then grain feed
them to exacting standards with a special
100% vegetarian diet over 365 days. The
cattle are closely monitored every step
of the way throughout our finishing and
production process to make sure our beef
meets our exacting quality standards.
We take pride and care in producing
the finest beef available to our customers.
