The Joy of Yak

High in Omega 3 
Very low in fat and cholesterol

Grass-fed yak is 95% fat-free and lower in cholesterol than traditional beef. In independent tests done by the Texas A&M University Department of Animal Science, yak samples were found to have a very high concentration of stearic acid and low concentrations of palmitic acid. "This is a favorable composition," said Dr. Stephen Smith, professor of animal science at the university's Kleberg Center in College Station. "Stearic acid does not increase plasma cholesterol in humans, whereas palmitic acid does."

Sweet, delicately flavored and juicier than buffalo and elk, and never gamey.

In blind taste tests using organic beef, buffalo and yak,
 yak was repeatedly voted the favorite for taste, texture and tenderness.
 Yak was voted the juiciest.
