Estonian Agriculture ministry wants a label on meat content on sausages

Juhan Tere, BC, Tallinn, 28.11.2012.Print version
The Estonian agriculture ministry made a proposal at yesterday’s meat forum to create a label that would indicate that a sausage product has at least 60% of meat content, LETA/Public Broadcasting reports.

The ministry wants to create a label that could be used on different types of sausages if they contain at least 60% of meat and no mechanically recovered meat.


Using the label would be voluntary for entrepreneurs.


The initial idea about creating a classification for sausage products was proposed to the ministry by Tallinn Technical University food institute researchers who noted that the differences in meat content in different sausages in Estonia are very big and these cause confusion for consumers.
