Storage Stability of Meat Products as Affected by Organic and Inorganic Additives and Functional Ingredients

  • Ki Soon Rhee


Numerous nonmeat additives have been evaluated for enhancement of the quality of meat products or for product development/modification. Some nonmeat additives function primarily as preservatives, as antimicrobials and/or antioxidants, while others mainly modify product attributes such as sensory, nutritional and processing properties. Such additives often have secondary effects (desirable or undesirable) on the quality of products involved. This paper examines the effects of various chloride salts, phosphates, salts of organic acids, and some fat substitutes on storage properties of meat products. Additionally, potential effects of microbial growth in test samples on lipid oxidation measurements and assessment of additive effects are discussed
