Egg meat

Egg meat

Meat contains protein that cannot be fully replaced by plant proteins , albeit with a similar amino acid composition; vitamin B12 (plays an important role in digestion), a lot of iron (red meat), which is well absorbed.

It is recommended to eat meat no more than 4-5 times a week, per day for an adult up to 150-180 g, for children under 100 g. Because an excess of protein is sometimes worse than a lack of it.

  • if after pressing on the meat the fossa quickly recovers - it is fresh,

  • crust with fresh meat of a pale pink-red tone (excluding lamb),
  • when the meat is cut, the meat on the cut should not be shiny and without a green tint,

  • if there is a crunch during cutting (without touching the bone ) or small round formations - the presence of worms is likely

  • products such as liver and kidneys should also be bought carefully (traces of possible usesantibiotic manufacturers there),

  • if the chicken has too soft bones - it was raised with the addition of hormones (and during its growth calcium was washed out of them),

  • spontaneous markets are not the best place to buy meat
