Effect of sex class on nutrient content of meat from young goat

Effect of sex class on nutrient content of meat from young goat

Journal of Animal Science 73(1): 296-301

The effect of sex class on proximate composition and cholesterol, vitamin, mineral, and fatty acid content was determined for carcass composite samples of cooked goat meat. Soft tissues (fat and lean) from dissection of one side of seven carcasses each for female, castrate, and intact male Florida native or F1 crosses of Florida natives with Nubian or Spanish goats were ground, formed into patties, and then broiled. Also, a leg slice was removed from the side not used for dissection, broiled, and then sampled for fatty acid determination. Broiled samples from female goats had lower (P = .04) moisture and higher (P = .03) fat and total calories than did samples from castrates and intact males. Sex class had no effect on cholesterol, vitamin, or mineral content of cooked goat meat. Broiled goat leg slices from intact males were lower (P = .006) in percentage of total saturated fatty acids and had a higher (P = .01 ) unsaturated to saturated fatty acid ratio than samples of broiled leg slices from females or castrates. Broiled goat meat had higher values for calcium, potassium, thiamin, and cholesterol than that reported in USDA Handbook 8 for cooked composite samples of beef or chicken. Also, broiled goat meat had lower total lipid, phosphorus, and vitamin B12 than composite values reported for beef. Other nutrients were similar to those reported for cooked composite samples of beef and chicken.
