Abstract

  • The meanings of words matter!

  • Many terms used in the meat science field were never systematically ascribed but came about over many years of time and usage

  • The American Meat Science Association (AMSA) Lexicon is an attempt to define some of the “loaded” words being bantered about in the popular press and the scientific research and to offer alternative words where better choices exist.

  • This document can be used as a starting place to begin discussions to include these more precise terms.
