extremely fuzzy categorization for meat products[edit]

Meat products are understood as muscle tissue plus fat tissue, not including bone material. In the context of fat distribution, it would be of extreme importance to distinguish how much of the fat is derived from pure muscle tissue, and from pure fat tissue, to make sense at all. Just listing "beef" or "pork" doesn't tell much of anything. Also I looked at the data source and it seems that it isn't even clear further processed meats, e.g. marinated meats, are included in this category. A quick look at http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/pork-products/10293/2 and http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/pork-products/10301/2 reveals that the difference here is quite large. Another comparison of muscle vs muscle + fat:http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/pork-products/2119/2 vs. http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/pork-products/2123/2 .109.91.32.80 (talk) 15:53, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
