The North American Meat Institute Foundation released an updated version of its popular Yellow Pages, a meat and poultry resource guide that provides important consumer information and answers to commonly asked questions about the meat supply, preparation and cooking and nutrition. The latest edition discusses the process by which livestock and poultry are raised, and describes aspects of the inspection system that ensure the safety and wholesomeness of the meat and poultry supply.

The guide also provides details about meat consumption and highlights a glossary of common meat terms to help consumers choose among the variety of products available at retail. The guide includes an extensive section devoted to meat's nutrition, underscoring the numerous vitamins and minerals meat offers, and reviews the calorie counts and preparation methods of various cuts of meat. Cooking and storage techniques, such as suggested oven and internal temperatures, and safe food handling practices are explained in-depth. To order a copy of Yellow Pages, visit the NAMI online store . The print edition is $25 for members and $50 for non-members. The digital edition is free for members and $99 for non-members.

The store on www.MeatInstitute.org contains numerous education resources, including the recently published Power of Meat study, which examines consumer perceptions, attitudes and behaviors regarding fresh and processed meat and poultry.
