Abstract: Kundi is an intermediate moisture meat (IMM) product conventionally prepared from camel meat (CM). There is a dearth of information on the production as well as*the nutritional and eating qualities of kundi from other meat types. An experiment was conducted in a completely randomized design to evaluate yield, nutrient composition and sensory characteristic of kundi prepared from CM, beef and chevon. The protein content of fresh CM (22.58%) was higher (p < 0.05) than the values of 19.57 and 20.83% obtained for beef and chevon respectively. The result showed that fresh beef has at least (p < 0.05) drip loss value of (2.46%) as against 4.03 and 3.53% obtained for CM and chevon respectively. Cooking loss values were 19.30, 21.26 and 20.36% for beef, CM and chevon respectively. Beef gave the least shear force value (6.68 kg/cm3) as compared to 8.39 kg/cm3 for CM and 7.06 kg/cm3 for chevon. The product yield ranged from 33.61 to 38.93%. Kundi from each of the 3 meat types contained about three times the protein in their respective raw meat. The ash content increased from 1.50, 1.05 and 1.31% in raw beef, CM and chevon to 5.80, 4.37 and 4.40% in kundi from corresponding meat type. Kundi from chevon was rated highest (p < 0.05) for flavour juiciness and tenderness while beef kundi (BK) was rated highest (p < 0.05) for colour. Camel kundi (CK) was rated least by the panelist in virtually all parameters scored. . The possibility of producing Kundi from beef and chevon will increase the consumption of the product especially by majority of consumers with aversion to camel meat.
