Fun with English



Fun with English

Haha. My lunch today. Do you know what I was eating?

Yes. Beef tendon with flat rice noodles. Yummy!

And, I have a question for you. Do you know the health benefits of beef tendon?

Let’s check it out!  :)

——

Beef tendon is primarily composed of collagen, a connective tissue that helps connect muscle to the bone. It is rare to find beef tendon in the North American diet; however, Asian cuisines make frequent use of it in soup, stew or broths. So what kind of nutrition does beef tendon provide and how can it be cooked?

The main ingredients of the beef tendon are hydrolysed collagen and elastin. These connective tissues play an important role in bone health. Studies have shown that a diet rich in hydrolysed collagen can help improve overall bone density. Including hydrolysed collagen in diet a month before surgery helps prevent bone mineral density loss.
