Default Brisket is not only good but it is good for you!

This just in from our friends as the meatingplace.com:
I wonder if this will have an impact on brisket prices.

Healthy 'depots' offer new option for marketing beef brisket: studyBy Tom Johnston on 4/29/2008 for Meatingplace.comA Texas A&M study has found that beef brisket contains "depots," or tiny reservoirs, of healthy monounsaturated fatty acids.

Those found in beef brisket may not be quite as rich a resource of monounsaturated fatty acids as oils like olive or canola, which contain 70 percent to 80 percent oleic acid.

"However, the fat in beef brisket from corn-fed steers contains nearly 50 percent oleic acid, and oleic acid increases the longer cattle are fed a corn-based diet," Stephen Smith, a Texas AgriLife Research meat scientist and a professor in A&M's department of animal science, said in a college news service report.

Smith chaired a thesis study conducted by Stacey Turk, an A&M animal science graduate student, who said the findings could change how meat processors market brisket by offering a more nutritious ground product than others currently sold in retail grocery outlets.

"We found the brisket to be the most healthful area of the carcass," Turk said. "The brisket in the southern parts of the United States is a well-known product. However, in the midwestern and eastern parts, briskets might be used for corned beef products and the rest shipped to the southern states. Processors could use this idea to utilize the brisket for a healthier ground product."

Turk noted that this would give processors an opportunity to place a premium on ground brisket.

That right there is my definition of hell.

I knew, deep in my bones, that brisket was good for you.

That is the biggest crock of crap I have ever read. Why would ONLY the brisket be healthier if the cow eats corn? That makes NO SENSE. I would bet a million dollars this is just a load of BS so they can raise the prices of brisket.

I'll have to agree with Bigabyte. Remember the stir fry craze? Skirt steaks for fajita went up 200% or more.
