Abstract

Buffalo meat is generally perceived as poor and inferior to beef. Conversely, there is strong advocacy in favor of the nutritional properties of Buffalo meat.

Most studies have not compared the quality of meats from water buffalo and cattle produced under the same experimental conditions.

This review discusses results from 24 selected experiments reporting eating and(or) nutritional qualities of meats from both species reared under similar feeding and environmental conditions.

The evidence reveals the potential of young buffaloes to produce comparable or higher-quality meat than cattle counterparts.

Under the same production conditions these species are similar in meat nutrient composition.
