Fat Measurement Meat Inspection

Eagle’s fat measurement meat inspection equipment checks 100% of fresh and frozen meat, packaged or unpackaged, in real-time while simultaneously performing weight measurement and detecting contaminants. Fat measurement of meat provides precise chemical lean values (better than +/- 1 CL), ensuring the ‘specification you buy, is the specification you get’ while enabling vastly improved fat management.

  • For slaughterhouses, fat management focuses on reducing lean giveaway and costs associated with fat claims and shipping out-of-specification product resulting in higher yields and operating margins.
  • For grinders and other meat processors, it’s all about yield: ensuring on-specification purchased trim, precise recipe management and formulation, and elimination of rework resulting in consistent high quality meat products.
