BENEFITS OF HALAL MEAT
Conscientious consumers believe that Halal food offers many health and ethical benefits.
1. Fresher and Safer Meat
The halal method of preparing an animal for food allows maximum drainage of blood from the animal's body as blood in meat makes it more susceptible to putrefaction. Since the blood is completely drained the meat is healthier and fresher and free from contamination caused by bacterial growth.
2. Hygienic Preparation of Meat
In Halal food, a lot of importance is placed on food safety and hygiene. This decreases the risk of food contamination. The butchers who prepare the meat are also bound by the same Halal regulations and deliver meat that meet the highest standards of hygiene and cleanliness.
3. Rearing Healthy Animals
Halal rules and regulations emphasise that it is not permissible to slaughter an animal that is sick, so animals for Halal meat are kept in natural and clean conditions to support disease-free growth. They are treated well and raised in happy and secure conditions with less stress and pain compared to modern farming techniques.
4. Humane Methods of Slaughter
Methods of slaughter like stunning can cause an animal to secrete lactic acid which hastens the onset of putrefaction because lactic acid makes the meat less resistant to bacteria. Halal rules and regulations call for humane methods of slaughter that are swift and painless ensure that the animals are spared from fear toxins, which can cause anxiety and fear.
5. Better Tasting Meat
Since Halal meat is prepared with less stress to the animal and complete blood drainage, Halal meat tastes better and is juicier and healthier.
6. More Economical
Halal meat is also more economical as the draining of blood means that every pound has more meat.
7. More Ethical
The halal method of preparing animals is not only the most hygienic, but it is also the most humane for the animal.
