So, what is meat?

Meat is a highly nutritious food ingredient that is derived from the muscle tissue of animals like cows, pigs, and chickens. It is an excellent source of protein, iron, zinc, and vitamin B12. Depending on the type of animal and cut of meat, the flavor, texture, and nutritional content can vary greatly. Meat can be prepared in a variety of ways, such as grilling, roasting, stewing, or frying, making it a versatile ingredient in many different dishes. While it provides numerous health benefits, it's important to consume meat in moderation and choose leaner cuts to maintain a well-balanced diet.

How to quickly find the source of ingredients like meat?

We've built a database of 49359 ingredients (and growing), classified as "vegan", "non-vegan", or "maybe vegan".
