The effect of modified atmosphere packaging (70% O(2)/30% CO(2)) and skin packaging (no oxygen) on protein oxidation and texture of longissimus dorsi was investigated during storage for 14 days at 4°C. High oxygen atmosphere resulted in reduced tenderness and juiciness and SDS-PAGE revealed cross-linking of myosin heavy chain through disulfide bonding, and(More)
Effect of rosemary extract and ascorbate/citrate (1:1) in combination with modified atmosphere packaging (100% N(2), 80% O(2)/20% N(2)) on protein and lipid oxidation in minced beef patties during storage in the dark for up to 6 days at 4°C was investigated. A high level of oxygen in the packaging atmosphere was found to increase both lipid and protein(More)
The objective of this study was to investigate the response of sarcoplasmic proteins in bovine LM to low-voltage electrical stimulation (ES; 80 V, 35 s) after dressing and its contribution to meat tenderization at an early postmortem time. Proteome analysis showed that ES resulted in decreased (P < 0.05) phosphorylation of creatine kinase M chain, fructose(More)
The aim of this paper is to present an approach for an integrated evaluation of the sustainability of pig farming systems, taking into account the three classical pillars: economy, environment and society. Eight sustainability themes were considered: Animal Welfare (AW), Animal Health (AH), Breeding Programmes (BP), Environment (EN), Meat Safety (MS),(More)
The aim of this paper is to present an efficient tool for evaluating the economy part of the sustainability of pig farming systems. The selected tool IDEA was tested on a sample of farms from 15 contrasted systems in Europe. A statistical analysis was carried out to check the capacity of the indicators to illustrate the variability of the population and to(More)
The effect of dietary soybean oil on lipid and protein oxidation in low and high fat pork patties made from quadriceps femoris during chill storage in a high oxygen atmosphere packaging (80% O(2)/20% CO(2)) in the dark for 7 days was investigated. Pigs were fed either a standard diet or a diet added 2% soybean oil. After slaughter high fat pork patties were(More)
This study investigates how Partial Least Squares regression models for predicting individual fatty acids (FAs) and total FA parameters depend on Raman spectral variation associated with the iodine value in pork backfat. The backfat was sampled from pigs, which were fed with different dietary fat sources and levels. Good correlations between the Raman(More)
A market conformity tool, based on technological meat quality parameters, was developed within the Q-PorkChains project, to be included in a global sustainability evaluation of pig farming systems. The specific objective of the market conformity tool was to define a scoring system based on the suitability of meat to elaborate the main pork products,(More)
This paper proposes the use of computed tomography (CT) as a reference method for estimating the lean meat percentage (LMP) of pig carcasses. The current reference is manual dissection which has a limited accuracy due to variability between butchers. A contextual Bayesian classification scheme is applied to classify volume elements of full body CT-scans of(More)
Meat traceability is important for linking process and quality parameters from the individual meat cuts back to the production data from the farmer that produced the animal. Current tracking systems rely on physical tagging, which is too intrusive for individual meat cuts in a slaughterhouse environment. In this article, we demonstrate a computer vision(More)
