Nutritional values

The daily requirement of zinc and vitamin B12 is taken care of here: the beef fillet steaks are an ideal source of it. Zinc is involved in cell division and is therefore important for growth and cell renewal, while vitamin B12 is involved in the formation of red blood cells and the myelin layer that protectively envelopes our nerve fibers.

If you choose meat from organic production, you can be sure that chemical synthetic medicines and feed additives have not been used, which are common in conventional farming and intensive animal fattening. This guarantees environmentally friendly meat production and greatly reduces the risk of undesirable residues and harmful substances.
