Signs of spoilage of sacrificial meat

Muslims are preparing to celebrate Eid al-Adha, where meat prominently features as a staple food due to its popularity and diverse nutritional benefits, including proteins and minerals. However, there are important guidelines to follow to avoid health issues.

During Eid al-Adha, some people may make mistakes leading to health problems such as consuming large amounts of meat in a short period, choosing unhealthy cooking methods, or opting for inappropriate meat types. These practices should be avoided to prevent food poisoning, high cholesterol, and digestive issues.

Dr. Amir Al-Qadi, a consultant in internal medicine and gastroenterology, emphasizes the importance of consuming meat in moderation during this period. He also advises against leaving fresh meat unrefrigerated after preparation to prevent spoilage, highlighting the need for proper storage guidelines.

General practitioner Wassim Abu Dawood points out common mistakes during Eid, including food poisoning, bloating, and digestion difficulties. He recommends following a healthy diet that includes lean, boiled meats and avoiding fried ones.

To prevent health problems, nutritionist Maisa Abu Maria recommends avoiding fried meats, opting instead for boiled options, drinking plenty of water, avoiding internal organs like liver, and maintaining regular physical activity.

Regarding meat storage, it is advisable to refrigerate prepared meat promptly at a suitable temperature for no longer than two hours, or freeze it if not cooking immediately, following recommended health conditions.

By adhering to these guidelines, one can enjoy Eid al-Adha in a healthy and safe manner, without compromising on health risks.
