With regard to biology, flesh is the soft substance of a human or other animal body that consists of muscle and fat; for vertebrate, this especially includes muscle tissue (skeletal muscle), as opposed to bones and viscera. Flesh may be used as food, in which case it is commonly called meat.

In the food context, flesh refers to the edible muscle tissue of animals that are used for food. This includes beef, pork, poultry, and fish, among others.

  • Poultry: The meat of domesticated birds such as chicken, turkey, and duck, commonly used for chicken breasts, wings, and whole roasted turkey.
  • Fish and seafood: The flesh of various types of fish and other aquatic creatures such as salmon, shrimp, crab, and lobster, commonly used for sushi, seafood chowder, and fish and chips.
