The red juice in raw red meat is not blood.
Nearly all blood is removed from meat during slaughter, which is also why you don’t see blood in raw “white meat”;
only an extremely small amount of blood remains within the muscle tissue when you get it from the store.
So what is that red liquid you are seeing in red meat?
Red meats, such as beef, are composed of quite a bit of water. This water, mixed with a protein called myoglobin, ends up comprising most of that red liquid.
