Fat - meat and sausages

Basically, the fat content in the meat depends largely on the quality of the product. In general, the higher the quality of the meat, the lower the fat content. For example, a fillet contains much less fat than roast or goulash. Naturally, the quality also increases the purchase price. For some pieces, however, fat is desired. Especially when grilling, fat prevents the meat from getting too dry.

High fat content in sausages

When making sausages, pay particular attention to hidden fat. Here, the fat content varies between 13 and almost 50 percent. The difference is not palpable in taste, as in body weight. A good alternative is dried meat and lean ham. They are tasty, rich in high quality protein and contain only a fraction of the fat contained in sausages.

Animal fats contain saturated fat. They are particularly responsible for the harmful effects on the cardiovascular system caused by excessive consumption.
