What do we call any form of food from animals living in the land?
As known widely, any form of food from marine animals is called "seafood". but What do we call any form of food originating from land animals (such as beef, chicken, and lamb)?? How do we call it??

No, actually Susan is correct. There is no single word covering all products of land animals though "meat" is used generically. "Livestock" is sometimes used to refer to the animals while they are still on the farm, though that also applies to animals that might be used for wool, fur or milk rather than meat as well. There are also specific words that relate to particular types of land animal meat such as beef, veal, lamb, mutton, pork, chicken etc, but no one single word that is used in the way seafood is.

I would say it is most commonly just called ¨meat.¨
