What is Wagyu
What is Wagyu? The "Wa or ε’Œ" in Wagyu means Japanese and "Gyu or 牛" means Cattle, but in most cases is also read as Beef. Just as the name implies, Wagyu refers to the four breeds (Kuroge Washu, Akage Washu, Mukaku Washu, Tankakushu), which are originated from Japan - hence called Japanese Cattle, or Beef. The majority of exported Wagyu is Kuroge Washu, which compared to other breeds, offers a differentiated level of marbling or intramuscular fat, flavor, texture, and color.
