Import home cooked food

Hi all.

I know that the 1kg limit for the meat that one can import for free through customs only applies to "food preparations with a sausage, meat or blood content of over 20 percent by weight". I guess that this means that if a food preparation contains less than 20% meat, I can bring as much of it as I want (maybe as long as the total meat is less than 1 kg - but this is not clear)

I want to bring some home-cooked food. It is going to be frozen. Does anybody have an idea how on earth can they measure the meat content per weight of a frozen home-cooked food? For example, if I bring Lasagna, how will they be able to tell if it has more or less than 20% meat?
