Is Quality Taste Of Beef Same

Yes. Consumers like you sampled and enjoyed steaks from cattle fed Zilmax in the largest grilled steak taste-test study ever. This research showed consumers rated beef from cattle fed the supplement as flavorful, tender and juicy2 – the same when compared to cattle that were not fed the supplement.

As thousands of consumers tasted steak samples in this blind study, they detected no difference in the overall acceptability. They based their response on the key attributes of beef quality, including tenderness, juiciness and flavor.2

In addition to consumer panels, university meat scientists evaluated the beef from cattle fed Zilmax against USDA objective parameters for beef quality. They, too, concluded that beef from cattle fed Zilmax is consistently within the desirable range for quality beef.
