1. What is Wagyu Beef?

What is Wagyu
Wa (Japanese) Gyu (Cattle) means "Japanese Cattle."

Wagyu is an Asian breed of cattle prized for its intensely marbled beef, unsaturated fats, and low cholesterol levels.

The unique taste, umami flavor, and tenderness of highly marbled Wagyu beef make for an unrivaled tasting experience. Nowadays, Wagyu beef is growing in popularity amongst gourmet chefs and the restaurants they service. At One-Stop Halal, we’re helping further this trend by making this high-class meat accessible to every family.

2. What is the difference between Fullblood, Purebred, American & Australian Wagyu?

Difference between Full blood wagyu, Crossbred, American and Australian Wagyu
At One Stop Halal, we only sell full-blood Wagyu. Our cattle are direct descendants of Japanese Wagyu with unmixed ancestry. They have never been crossbred with other cattle breeds, such as Angus. But this doesn’t tell you much if you don’t understand how these cattle are categorized:

Fullblood Wagyu: Fullblood Wagyu is the purest form of Wagyu cattle. Fullbloods are descended from 100% Japanese Wagyu cattle. They have pure lineage – meaning both parents are certified full-blood Wagyu. This is the rarest designation with only a few thousand cattle qualified for it. Experts believe that the best, most succulent meat comes from these carefully cultivated bloodlines.

Purebred Wagyu: Purebred Wagyu results when you crossbreed a full-blood Wagyu with another breed of cattle (usually Angus). To be certified as purebred, the meat must be at least 93.75% Wagyu. Anything that is more than 1/16th of another breed is not eligible for this designation.

American Wagyu: American Wagyu is mostly a marketing term. It’s used to refer to any crossbreed of Wagyu with another breed. For example, 50% Wagyu and 50% Angus. Some are considered Purebred Wagyu (as mentioned above), which means they are 15/16 Wagyu and 1/16 Angus (or another similar breed). Of the 30,000+ Wagyu-influenced cattle in the USA, about 85% are crossbred.

Australian Wagyu: Australian Wagyu is again a crossbred between the original Fullblood Wagyu and another breed. Australian Wagyu cattle are bred, fed, grown, and processed in Australia.

3. What is Marbling and why it is so important?

Fullblood Wagyu Beef Marbling Score
Just as regular beef follows a standard USDA grading system (Choice, Prime, Select), Wagyu beef is evaluated based on its level of intramuscular fat, also known as “marbling.” The higher the marbling, the more tender and succulent the meat. This Beef Marbling Score (BMS) ranges from 1 to 12, with higher numbers equating to better quality. For reference, USDA Prime beef, the highest designation of quality in the U.S.A., is equivalent to a 4 or 5 marbling score. That means the most tender Angus steak is around twice as tough as our Wagyu products.

At One Stop Halal, we only sell Wagyu that scores between 9 and 10 on BMS testing.

4. Is Wagyu beef healthy?

Wagyu is Healthy
Not all fat is bad for you! Without some healthy fats, your body wouldn’t be able to function.

Wagyu beef contains more Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids than conventional beef. Studies have shown a higher concentration of monounsaturated fatty acids (good fat)—which is what you’ll find in Wagyu--is associated with a lower risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Nutrition experts have also found this sought-after meat to be much lower in cholesterol than the grain-fed beef you’ll find at the grocery store.

So, when it comes to premium beef, full-blood Wagyu is THE healthy choice!

5. Is Kobe beef the same as Wagyu Beef?

Difference between Wagyu and Kobe
Kobe is a term used to describe Full Blood Wagyu cattle that were raised in Kobe, Japan. Since our cows are not raised in Japan, they do not qualify for that title.

Most of the Kobe beef available in the USA is an American Kobe, made from cross-breeding of Wagyu with Angus. There are very few restaurants in the USA, which serve authentic Kobe beef.

6. Do you import your Wagyu’s from Japan?

Fullblood Wagyu is not imported from Japan
No, we do not import our cattle directly from Japan. Our cattle are direct descendants of Japanese cattle with unmixed ancestry.

In the late 1990s, less than 200 full-blooded Wagyu cows were brought into the USA from Japan. After that, there was a ban placed on further importation—one that persists to this day. Our cattle are the direct descendants of those that original group.

We work with a select number of Wagyu farms in the United States. Our Wagyu cattle are raised in a high-tech breeding facility, with a special emphasis on a research-based diet, and the recommendations of Wagyu nutrition experts.

7. Do you serve Alcohol or give Massage to the Wagyu?

Do you massage Wagyu or Serve alcohol to Wagyu
At, One Stop Halal, we never give our animals any alcohol (beer,sake). We only sell pure products (Tayyeb) without any adulteration.

In Japan, though, some farmers may give alcohol (beer) to stimulate their appetite. Some also massage their Wagyu since the cattle are confined to a smaller space. Massaging helps in reducing cramping and helps in the distribution of softness across the muscles. This is not needed in the United States as the grazing lands of our cattle are much larger than what is available overseas.

8. Why is Wagyu so expensive?

Why Wagyu is expensive
As the adage goes: you get what you pay for. Wagyu cattle are raised with individualized care and attention—something not often found in modern factory farms. And, this added oversight must be paid for. When it comes to softness and succulency, these sought-after meats approach stick-of-butter levels. One taste of this meat and you’ll know the price tag is worth it.

It’s something everyone should experience at least once.

8. Is your Wagyu Zabiha Halal?

HFSAA Halal Certified
All our meat products are certified by the HFSAA (Halal Food Standards Alliance of America), one of the leading Halal certification body in the USA. Because we believe in following traditional Islam, we only sell Handcut Zabiha meat. We also adhere to the 13-Point Inspection Checks in our Halal meat production process as per the guidelines here.

To our knowledge, we are the only company in the US harvesting full-blood Wagyu in a zabiha halal manner. So, for the faithful, there is no better choice for Wagyu steaks than One-Stop Halal.
