jauhe- (ground) +‎ liha (meat)



  1. ground meat, minced meat (of any animal)
  2. hamburger, hamburger meat, ground beef (of cattle)

Usage notesEdit

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.
