What does the natural meat label mean?

Margaret Floyd
Nutrition & Dietetics
In my mind, the label, "natural," is the most ridiculous of all labels on meat. Technically speaking, any and all fresh meat is "natural." In the industry, it simply means that the meat contains no artificial colors, it has been "minimally processed," and there are no additional, artificial ingredients.
