Cattle

In the context of the triangle trade

Cattle were traded in the triangle trade, but unlike most similar goods, it was traded from the old world to the new world. I chose, you guessed it, Encyclopedia Britannica, for my source for the Safavid. Cattle were used as work animals in the sugar fields and mines. They also became a staple food of pirates, who smoked the meat. Cattle not only helped helped with exploration by providing a source of food, but provided a more efficient way to harvest and collect resources.
