Abstract

The quality of Indian Barbari chevon, cara-beef and indigenous chicken like Kadaknath is unique in nature. So a comparative study was conducted to find out the quality characteristics of meat in terms of nutritional composition, mineral profile and fatty acid status. In nutritional composition, amount of protein (26.20%) was observed significantly (P<0.05) higher in Kadaknath meat than chevon and carabeef. The values observed for fat content was significantly (P<0.05) higher in chevon than Kadaknath meat and cara-beef. On mineral analysis it was evident that sodium was significantly (P<0.05) higher in chevon, potassium and zinc in carabeef and iron in Kadaknath meat. Fatty acid profile revealed significantly (P<0.05) different ratio of saturated fatty acids (SFA) and unsaturated fatty acids (USFA). In chevon SFA and USFA was almost same in ratio while kadaknath meat showed that ratio of SFA and USFA as 1:19. It is then concluded that Kadaknath meat is rich in unsaturated fatty acids. Organ wise kidneys of Kadaknath and heart of carabeef showed higher protein content than other organs. However, chevon organs were showed overall higher minerals contents.
