Australian Red Meat    

How much red meat do Australians eat?

  • The Australian Dietary Guidelines recommend 65g cooked lean red meat per day (equivalent to 455g per week).
  • An average serving (150g raw weight) consumed 3-4 times a week is consistent with how red meat is typically consumed and in line with recommended amounts. 
    • Australians typically eat red meat served with three or more vegetables.
    • Popular meals include meat and veg-style meals, stir-fries, roasts, casseroles, and salads.

  • Average per capita consumption of red meat is consistent with recommendations (Sui et al., 2017).
