Traditionally, meat, poultry, seafood and egg have been distinguished in the food industry. Historically, meat has been described as the animals ' edible flesh. It generally concerned only the red meats, i.e. beef, lamb, pork and veal, including both fresh and refined items and variety of glandular meats.
More recently, it has been recognized that in physical and chemical properties all foods derived from muscle or muscle foods have basically the same or similar characteristics. This is the reason, examination is logical and all muscle foods are considered under one cover.
In order to enhance the knowledge in the area of Meat and Seafood, FFSQ, IGMPI has designed this programme of Meat and Seafood Technology. This is undertaken through theoretical knowledge and practical skill as both are essential to master the field of meat industry.
The objective of this course is to give knowledge about structure, composition and nutritive value of meat, fish, egg and poultry; scientific slaughtering of animals, post mortem changes in them; handling, storage, and transportation of fish, and processing of meat, fish and poultry products. On completion of this course student will be able to explain the advanced processing of meat, fish and poultry products. You can apply the various concepts of meat science in meat preservation and processing; also analyze the effect of various processing techniques on the quality of meat and meat products discuss and plan the by-product utilization in meat industry.
