The meat from "Vadehavsstude" comes from young cattle that graze on Denmark's west coast and has a distinct flavour due to the meadows' salt content. The grasses are rich in nutrients and particularly wholesome, and give ‘Vadehavsstude’ its special quality. Blind taste tests of the Wadden Sea beef prove that the meat is more tender, juicier and more fragrant than conventional beef.
