In 32 years after the accident at the Chernobyl NPP, the radiological situation has changed both due to natural processes (physical decay of radionuclides, their redistribution in various environmental components) and measures taken after the accident to assess the state of radioactive pollution of the environment and control of radionuclide content in products that were produced at contaminated areas. However, the situation remains extremely difficult, food and animal feed are contaminated with radionuclides. As a result, they cause a threat to human health. The article presents data on the comparative assessment of the nutritional value of rabbit meat depending on the season, the breed and the accumulation of radionuclides, in particular cesium-137, in the feed and meat of these animals in clean and second zone of radioactive contamination. Rabbit meat is considered all over the world as the most dietary meat, besides rabbit breeding is a unique industry due to its inherent biologically and economically beneficial features. These benefits are unpretentious to the conditions of animals, their feeding and care, high fecundity, polycyclic, early maturity and product quality. Rabbit meat contains a large amount of protein, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium compared with other types of meat. In addition, the fat content is only 0.8-3.6%, cholesterol content is 45-55 mg%, which is significantly less than in other dietary meats. The polyunsaturated fatty acids (60%) prevail in the composition of fat. Rabbit meat dominates among other types of meat by the content of vitamins and minerals.

Keywords: radioactive contamination, cesium-137, rabbit, breed, seasonality, quality
