Ever have the experience of making your own beautiful hamburgers by hand then placing them on the grill only to watch them shrink dramatically. We have, and that’s why we did a shrink test of supermarket lean ground beef against our Nimitz Beef deluxe lean ground.
Shrink can be expected in all beef, because there is always a moisture component. But these results were shocking!
The supermarket lean ground went from 200 grams to 136 grams which is a 32% shrink. While the Nimitz Beef lean ground went from 200 grams to157 grams which is a 21.5% shrink. A difference of 10.5% which is quite a lot if you think say in terms of kilograms, a kilogram of Nimitz Beef contains essentially 105 grams more meat after cooking than the store bought lean ground.
Next time you are buying beef in the supermarket or grocery store it is important to ask yourself just how much water are you willing to pay for.
In combination with the results from experiment 2 that visually depicted the fat content as well as the results of experiment 1 that depicted the possible conditions the animal was raised in and its overall health, maybe it is time to go with the beef that is conclusively better than your supermarkets lean ground beef. All you have to do now is taste the flavour of our ranch raised natural and healthy beef to truly experience why it is a superior product.
