Tired Of Oat Bran? How About A Nice, Low Fat Steak?

TIRED OF OAT BRAN? HOW ABOUT A NICE, LOW-FAT STEAK?

For people who have to watch their fat--the fat content of what they eat, that is--Houston's Granada Foods Corp. has a welcome treat: beef. The company is marketing 96% fat-free beef cuts that are just as effective in reducing cholesterol as fish or chicken. That benefit was demonstrated in a recent study of almost-fat-free beef conducted jointly by health and nutrition experts at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston and at Texas A&M University.

Granada's aged, vacuum-packed beef can now be found in many California supermarket meat cases, and the company will be expanding distribution to other states in the months ahead. To meet demand until then, Granada will soon start selling premium cuts of extra-lean red meat by mail to diet-conscious consumers outside California.EDITED BY OTIS PORT
