Frozen meat

Piece of frozen meat

 

In Halal guidelines, meat that is chilled or frozen should be stored in separate cold stores other than those in which pork or other Non-Halal meat is stored

 

Meat consists of skeletal muscle tissue, including fatty, connective and bone tissue, originating from slaughtered, skinned and gutted animals

 

Frequently transported types of meat are: Cattle (quarters of beef), calves, sheep and lambs (whole or portioned)

 

Freezing very largely suppresses the activity of microorganisms and enzymes, so ensuring longer preservation than for chilled meat

 

Meat on the carcass is rapidly frozen in a freezing tunnel in which the meat is exposed to a blast of cold air and sometimes completely frozen in less than 24 hours
