Low Fat Meats:
Design Strategies
and Human Implications

edited by Harold Hafs
and R. G. Zimbelman


This treatise embraces all of the various efforts to reduce fat in meat. Establishing methods such as breeding and feeding to control fatness are covered, but emphasis is on emerging technologies including meat processing and partitioning agents to reduce fat. Human implications, such as health, social, ethical, and economic factors, are given special attention. Sensory characteristics of low-fat meat, animal well being, and two new directions for the future are also discussed.

Low-Fat Meats: Design Strategies and Human Implications provides an up-to-date overview of the technologies to produce low-fat meat, with a balanced discussion of the issues.Paying special attention to health, social, ethical, and economic implications inherent in developing low-fat meats, this volume also discusses sensory characteristics of low-fat meat, animal well-being, and new directions for the future.
