Joffer Family Ranch in Oregon has developed burgers with extremely low fat content and with a lot less calories, launching them under its Skinny Beef brand name. The ranch uses small, naturally lean sport cattle breeds that are grass-fed and get exercise, and consequently produce the super-lean beef. The ranch says its Skinny Beef averages only 1.01 grams per 100 gram serving, as tested by an accredited food lab. When compared with regular beef burgers, Skinny Beef has approximately half the calories and 50% more protein from a quarter-pound patty of traditional 75% lean ground beef. The products are currently only sold online from the Joffer Family Ranch. www.skinnybeef.com
