Among the most flavorful and sought-after meat products at delis and restaurants across America, roast beef is low in fat, rich in protein, and loaded with beneficial nutrients. A typical one-ounce serving delivers seven grams of complete, high-quality protein and only two grams of fat. Consuming roast beef is a satisfying and convenient way to boost your intake of iron and zinc, as well as B vitamins, which play an essential role in developing and maintaining cognitive function in children and adults.

Tasty and lean, roast beef can be enjoyed hot or cold, and can be prepared at home or purchased fresh or pre-packaged.
