this might be a really stupid question lol

many people say that red meat is healthier than pigs/chickens (of which i still have to ask why in another thread), so is "red meat" a category for the animal type, like cow and sheeps, the grass-eating type OR "red meat" as in their muscle meats r red when raw?? what about organs from pigs and chickens, they r red :)

Quilt, if you don't understand the humor then go back and read the question again and then read your answer. Your answer is very cryptic and also incorrect. The diet of an animal or how many nutrients you digest does not change whether the meat counts as red meat or not.

Olivia, Quilt's answer is +1 to me; all of us may have known or unknown problems absorbing various nutrients and so you are what you can absorb not the exact total of what you ate. And, I must say, your response was rude and unnecessarily sharp.

Nutritionally "red meat" includes all commonly eaten farmed mammals such as cows, pigs and sheep with ducks and geese sometimes added to this group. It is defined by the level of myoglobin in the muscle tissue.

White meat includes chicken and turkey. These terms are not absolute and often the definition is used differently depending on the situation.

Red and white meat refers to the muscle meat of the animal.

Many people around here recommend eating grass-fed ruminant animals rather than chicken or pork. This is due to chicken and pork containing higher levels of omega-6 fat. Ruminants include: cattle, goats, sheep, bison, moose, elk etc.

Organ meats are usually put in their own category whatever animal they are from and the red or white does not apply. Organs are nutritionally similar across catagories.

When people refer to meat as "red" they are referring to ruminants(cows, goats, sheep, deer, elk, buffalo).

And there are no stupid questions!

Just for fun and to confuse you more.

From wikipedia:

Red meat in traditional culinary terminology is meat which is red when raw and not white when cooked. In the nutritional sciences, red meat includes all mammal meat. Red meat includes the meat of most adult mammals and some fowl (e.g. ducks).

In gastronomy, red meat is darker-colored meat, as contrasted with white meat. The exact definition varies by time, place, and culture, but the meat of adult mammals such as cows, sheep, and horses is invariably considered red, while chicken and rabbit are invariably considered white. The meat of young mammals such as milk-fed veal calves and sheep, and pigs is traditionally considered white; while the meat of duck and goose is considered red.[1] Game is sometimes put in a separate category altogether (French viandes noires 'black meats').

The answer lies in what you eat eats......and the quotient is you are only what you absorb and not all that you eat.

I think people tend to recommend red meat because it usually comes from ruminant animals so it will have lower omega 6 and polyunsaturated fats in general. Organs from pigs and chicken are usually pretty low in polyunsaturated fat and are suitable alternatives to ruminant organs depending on the source.

Clever marketing campaign notwithstanding, pork is red meat.
