February 13, 2009, Newsletter Issue #408: Liquid In Beef Packaging Is Not Blood

Tip of the Week

Many people think the liquid found in beef packaging is blood from the steer because of the color of the liquid and the color of the meat. However, it is important to note that blood is removed from beef during the slaughtering process. There is a minute amount remaining and it is contained within the muscle of the beef. Beef is about three-quarters water, so that natural moisture, combined with protein, is what is found in packages of beef.
