Meat products have great importance in daily diet. The physical and functional properties of meat products provide consumer appreciation. In addition to these features, an evaluation has been made in terms of their impact on human health. In this study, the formulation of meat products according to the functional properties, processing, storage and consumption modifications and functional meat products are discussed. Meat and meat products have great potential with some important nutrients to the diet, such as fatty acids, minerals, dietary fiber, antioxidants and bioactive peptides. In addition, new technologies have been developed to produce successful products, increase their stability and be tasteful. It is important that the components used are natural in order to ensure that the existing health beneficial components in their structures are taken up by diet. In vitro studies performed due to the participation of food products in metabolism by digestion are also an important evaluation criterion for meat products developed with natural ingredients.
