Abstract

Summary In recent years, the consumer expects from the food specific characteristics such as nutritional value, health, genuineness. Therefore, livestock production must be made taking into account environmental protection, animal welfare and human health. In farming techniques should be used to reduce air pollution, water and soil, while, on the strategies adopted, particularly foodstuffs, are aimed at tracing, security and quality of products of animal origin. Between those products, the meat is a major animal husbandry production and it plays an important role as food. The consumption of red meat, however, fell because of its high content in saturated fatty acids that are considered harmful to human health. In light of the recent development of the market for so-called "functional food" or functional foods, rich or "enriched" by biologically active components that are able to optimize the physical and mental well-being and to reduce the risk of contracting diseases, were conducted several studies in order to change the composition of acid intramuscular fat meat and then make that product a food "functional".
