Wagyu is meat for which "teeth are not needed". This is the most refined variety of marbled beef, which is less common than others.

To get this unique meat with uniform layers of fat, calves are fed natural milk from birth to six months, and then grazed in meadows. When the bulls grow up, they are placed in separate soundproof rooms and restricted in movement. They are suspended on the reins, so that when their muscles are stationary, they nevertheless remain in tension. This position contributes to the uniform distribution of fat layers in the meat. For ten months, the animals are fed with selected grain, given expensive beer, they are massaged and classical music is played.

Surprisingly, the fat in this meat does not contain harmful acids, but, on the contrary, is considered useful. The fatter the meat, the more expensive it is.
