The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of pre-slaughter fasting time, sex and feeding regime on water-holding capacity (WHC), colour and sensory properties and their relationship with pH in M. longissimusdorsi (LD) in pigs. 270 pigs of the commercial Norwegian crossbreed Noroc (Norwegian Landrace×Yorkshire sow and Norwegian Landrace×Duroc boar) were used involving two sexes (gilts and castrates), two feeding regimes (restricted and ad libitum) and four fasting treatments: (F4) 4h… CONTINUE READING
