Non-Hormone Treated Cattle (NHTC)
Washugyu is certified by the USDA as all natural and all the beef must be produced by the cattle which have never been treated with growth hormones.
High Quality Beef (HQB)
The greatest feature of Washugyu is the “Natural Umami” flavor. Needless to say, Washugyu has the great marbling much better than U.S. Beef. The prolonged fattening period brings out the natural flavor of the meat. People in Japan say, Japanese Wagyu has the marbling = has plenty of cross fat, which adds to the tenderness = can enjoy the flavor of the fat.
