KOBE BEEF vs WAGYU
What's the difference?
Wagyu simply means Japanese cow or cattle. It has no relation to quality.
Kobe beef comes only from Tajima-gyu cattle, that belong to the Japanese Black breed.
ONLY 3,000 HEADS OF KOBE BEEF CATTLE ARE PRODUCED PER YEAR
SO ALL JAPANESE BEEF IS WAGYU
REGARDLESS OF QUALITY
BUT ONLY SOME VERY HIGH-QUALITY WAGYU IS KOBE
Just what is this strict Kobe beef criteria?
