Nutritive Value of Meat or Chemical Composition of Meat

Chemical Composition of Meat.

Description : 

We all know that meat is a very nutritious food which meets our daily need of various important nutrients like protein, fat, minerals and vitamins. We have studied in the previous Meat Science (LPT) note that muscles are converted into meat through some post mortem changes. Thus, the composition of muscle is reflected in the composition of meat. The proximate composition in meat includes moisture, protein, fat, carbohydrate, mineral and vitamin. We must know the chemical composition of any food to assess its nutritive value. Different species meats differ in their caloric value due to the difference in their chemical composition. Beside this factor (i.e. species of meat animal), breed, age, sex, plane of nutrition, exercises etc. also influence the composition of meat.
