Effects of rate of pH fall, time of deboning, aging period, and their interaction on veal quality characteristics.


Three groups of veal carcasses were selected on the basis of their pH in the longissimus lumborum muscle at 3 h postmortem (pH3) to study the effects and interaction with time of deboning on quality characteristics of veal. The following groups of 10 calves each were selected: 1) fast pH fall, pH3 < 6.2; 2) intermediate pH fall, 6.2 < pH3 < 6.7; and 3) slow… (More)
