Wagyu Marbling

Marbling is the distribution of soft white intramuscular fats within the red meat. Generations of careful breeding and management of diet and exercise contribute to the unique marbling of Wagyu Beef. Wagyu is graded for its marbling on a scale of 1-12, with 12 being the highest achievable quality. At this level, the beef is considered a work of art! To be designated as "A5 Wagyu," the beef must be raised in Japan and achieve the highest possible rating by the Japanese Meat Grading Association. For reference, USDA Prime beef, the highest designation of quality in the U.S., is equivalent to a 4 or 5 marbling score.
