In a process similar to separating milk from cream, we use low heat on the beef trimmings to separate the 100% pure beef from the fat. A USDA-approved food grade antibacterial solution is used to prevent the growth of bacteria.

We mix the 95% lean Finely Textured Beef with beef trim to give you a choice in flavor and leanness, creating 73% to 96% lean ground beef.
