Muscle fat from Longhorn cattle was less saturated(41.8%) than from British crosses ... due primarily to greater levels of polyunsaturated fatty acids with a smaller increase in monounsaturated fatty acids. Long horn cattle had less fat in the longissimus muscle and the fat present was unsaturated.It is unknown the degree to which this difference in fatty acid composition is due to cattle type or to the level of fat present. What can be concluded is that at a similar marbling endpoint, Longhorn cattle had less longissimus muscle fat and it was less saturated. Sensory rating were similar across cattle types and all groups produced acceptable beef based on rating for sensory traits."

"Leaner beef products with less fat than provided in traditional beef will assist in reducing caloric intake. Reflecting fitness-diet-health concerns, consumers are interested in reducing fat consumption especially saturated fat and are concerned about cholesterol levels..."

Source: "Texas Longhorns Equal Lean Beef"Texas Longhorn Breeders Association of America

"Lean beef is good for you and the key word is lean. A heart patient can eat steak every meal if it is in the right proportions. Longhorn meat on the average, contains 10 percent less saturated fat than that of other cattle. That puts lean Longhorn beef on par with skinned boneless white meat of chicken and that fact may come as a surprise to many dieticians."

-Dr. Joseph Graham, Cardiovascular Surgeon at St. John's Medical Center in Joplin, Missouri,and a Longhorn breeder himself
