Wagyu Japanese Beef
Types of Wagyu and Their Unique Characteristics
Cattle that are recognized as Wagyu are four breeds including “Japanese Black,” “Japanese Brown,” “Japanese Shorthorn,” and “Japanese Polled” and interbred hybrids of those four breeds. Among these breeds, 90% or more are “Japanese Black” which is raised across the country. Japanese Black Beef has the characteristic of elaborate “marbling” (the fat is entwined in the meat in an irregular mesh pattern).
The characteristic of Wagyu is the marbled fat distributed through the muscle fibers known as ‘ Shimofuri’ in Japan. The marbled meat of Wagyu gives an extremely tender, melt-in-the-mouth quality.
Certified Omi Beef cattle are raised in the rich, natural environment of Shiga prefecture, and on the pristine waters that spring from the mountains surrounding the “mother lake”, Lake Biwa. The Omi Beef brand is the oldest in Japan.
Hida beef is an appellation given only to Japanese Black beef produced in Gifu Prefecture that is especially outstanding.
Delicately textured and tender, Hida beef is acclaimed for tastiness that seems to melt in your mouth.
