A little background information... Gras double is made up of the thickest parts of the rumen, one of the four compartments of the bovine stomach. And contrary to what has often been written, gras double is not doubly fat. Etymologically, double fat means "thick part of the rumen", since "fat" comes from the Latin "crassus" meaning big, thick.
