From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    The various forms of uncleanness according to the Mosaic law are
    enumerated in Lev. 11-15; Num. 19. The division of animals into
    clean and unclean was probably founded on the practice of
    sacrifice. It existed before the Flood (Gen. 7:2). The
    regulations regarding such animals are recorded in Lev. 11 and
    Deut. 14:1-21.
      The Hebrews were prohibited from using as food certain animal
    substances, such as (1) blood; (2) the fat covering the
    intestines, termed the caul; (3) the fat on the intestines,
    called the mesentery; (4) the fat of the kidneys; and (5) the
    fat tail of certain sheep (Ex. 29:13, 22; Lev. 3:4-9; 9:19;
    17:10; 19:26).
      The chief design of these regulations seems to have been to
    establish a system of regimen which would distinguish the Jews
    from all other nations. Regarding the design and the abolition
    of these regulations the reader will find all the details in
    Lev. 20:24-26; Acts 10:9-16; 11:1-10; Heb. 9:9-14.
