Buying Tips

Milk-fed veal should be cream-white in color with just a tinge of pink, and have a smooth, firm texture. The bones are white and soft. Check the “Sell By” date on the package. This date indicates the last day the veal should be offered for sale. Meat and poultry should be prepared as soon as possible after the date of purchase, and used beyond the “Sell By” date only occasionally, if at all.


Milk-fed veal comes from not yet weaned calves up to three months old. Formula-fed calves may be up to four months old. Bob veal comes from calves only one month old.

Veal is available as scallops, cutlets, chops, roasts, stew meat, breast, shank, and veal burger.
