Halal is Arabic for permissible. Halal food is that which adheres to Islamic law, as defined in the Quran. The Islamic form of slaughtering animals or poultry, “Zibah” involves killing through a cut to the jugular vein, carotid artery, and windpipe. Meat is animal flesh that is eaten as food. Humans have hunted and killed animals for meat since pre-historic times. The advent of civilization allowed the domestication of animals such as chickens, sheep, rabbits, and cattle. This eventually led to their use in meat production. Meat is mainly composed of water, protein, and fat. It is edible normally after it has been cooked and seasoned or processed in a variety of ways. Meat and poultry are good sources of protein. They also provide lots of nutrients for your body's needs, like zinc, iron, iodine, vitamins (especially B12), and essential fatty acids. So, it's a good idea to eat meat and poultry every week as part of your balanced diet. Having enough protein in the diet has been shown to enhance learning and intellectual development. Not only that, the zinc found in chicken and beef is beneficial to a healthy immune system. Another component of meat, linoleic acid, may help prevent certain chronic diseases, such as arthritis, breast cancer, and eczema. When compared with its major export partners, Australia's meat consumption closely matches the United States. In both countries, poultry is the most consumed meat at over 40 kg per person. Beef and veal and meat each account for between 20 and 30 kg per person. Fish accounts for around 15 kg per person and sheep meat for less than 10 kg per person. In contrast, in Australia's major Asian markets, fish accounts for a much larger share of consumption.
