Usage notes[edit]

In Finnish jauheliha may refer to any variety of meat. If it is necessary to be more specific, the name of animal (or sometimes animals, see sika-nautajauheliha) needs to be added as an attribute, e.g. naudan (of cattle) jauheliha = "ground beef". Another commonly used attribute is vähärasvainen (low-fat, lean) which refers to "lean ground beef" if not otherwise specified.
