French term or phrase: grain de viande
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Salut!

Does anybody know the meaning of the above in a culinary context? It is taken from the following sentence:

Une sélection rigoureuse de la matière (morceaux, taux de matière grasse) et un nouveau process de fabrication confèrent à ce produit un grain de viande généreux et une texture incomparable même après cuisson.

higher meat content


Explanation:
Presumably the meat is leaner with a lower fat percentage hence...more meat content.

  -> I was thinking the 80%/20%, etc. meat to fat content since we're talking about minced meat.

neutral  Layla de Chabot: I don"t think it has anything to do with meat content either

a hint of meat


Explanation:
or a touch of meat? The recipe is not overloaded with meat........normally refers to addition of spices etc, but it might be possible here

disagree  Tony M: I don't think they'd be vaunting the fact even if it were the case; but since this is a beef manufacturer, and I assume we're still talking about 99% beef burgers, I really don't think this could be the case.

(well-marbled) fine-grained meat


Explanation:
can't believe no one put in meat grain as option. Never would have considered minced meat! I thought meat grain was quite common knowledge as in "cut across/with the grain".

I'd go with fine-textured grain for good meat which this seems to be (tender after cooking). The marbling is from the fat content as marbled meat is much better tasting than completely lean meat. Marbling is used with beef, in particular.

what type of meat is this by the way?

neutral  Sandra& Kenneth: "Marbled" means with lots of pieces of fat in it - this is definitely not the case here, especially not after cooking.

  -> marbled means a BIT of fat running through meat BEFORE cooking
