How Can I Measure The Leanness of Ground Beef?

Labels Show Lean Percentages of Ground Beef

Labels are important factors in choosing ground beef. Lean ground beef must have a 25% reduction in fat over the standard of 30% in regular ground beef. Ground beef labels on the market usually include information on the fat and lean percentage to give consumers a clear idea of the leanness of the beef. If there is no label or information on how lean the ground beef is, remember that the brighter the red, the leaner the meat.
