Veal is a calf (usually male) that is raised on milk and is intended to be used for meat at a young age. Veal meat is served at many restaurants and is very popular in cultural cuisine. It is known for its delicate taste and tender texture compared to other meats. However, the method of raising livestock for veal is controversial, as many consider it overly cruel.[1] This has lead to recent changes in the industry.[2]
