Abstract: Sixteen numbers of Black Bengal goats were purchased from local goat market residing at east canal Road, Ultadanga, Kolkata to assess the nutritive value, physic-chemical as well as sensory qualities of different muscles of Black Bengal goats. A day before the slaughter, the animals were starved for 12 to 16 hours with adlibitum water and after Halal method of slaughter weight were recorded. The study revealed that moisture, total ash, water holding capacity, sarcomere length and cholesterol did not differ significantly but fat %, total pigment, mineral content (Cu & Mg) and fatty acid content of four different muscles wear significantly differ (p<0.05). On the other hand, the mineral content (Zn & Mn) of Deltoid and Longissimus dorsi both muscles are significantly differ from Biceps femoris and Trapezius muscles (p<0.05). The result of the study also revealed that the total protein content in Deltoid and Trapezius muscles both are significantly differ from Biceps femoris and Longissimus dorsi muscles (p<0.05). The pH and fibre diameter of Biceps femoris and Trapizius both muscles are significantly differ from Longissimus dorsi and Deltoid muscles (p<0.05).
