Meat has always been one of the most consumed and appreciated foods by humans, not only for its taste but also and especially for its many nutritious properties, which are essential for the growth and development of our bodies. Meat, despite its high nutritional value, should still be included in a varied and balanced diet, to avoid arising in food problems and deficiencies due to the lack of other foods important to the body or, conversely, problems due to too much consumption of meat itself.

Due to the presence of iron also, meat helps prevent and treat any anemia due to its possible deficiency, and it stimulates the body’s immune system by helping it effectively fight infections.

The basic elements of the Mediterranean diet, besides meat of course (in not excessive amounts), are: vegetables, legumes, fresh and dried fruits, olive oil , cereals and fish, and sweets in more moderate amounts.

Returning to meat, Italian meats are among the most controlled in the world, thanks to strict regulations and one of the most structured health systems in the world, with continuous inspections and controls throughout the processing phase.
