When using a bomb calorimeter to combust meat, do I need to work out the sulphur content for meat?

Will the amount of sulphur in waste meat greatly affect the amount of energy produced from combusting waste meat?

I have been working on a graduate project of the combustion of waste meat using a bomb calorimeter.
I'm aware that I may need to compensate for the amount of sulphur that's in the meat due to its affect on the energy; but is it enough to make a difference or can I just class it as a negligible amount?
