  • Meat Preservation                              
  • Meat Putrefication
    • Meat is putrefied due to the action of bacteria , moulds , yeasts.
    • To grow and proliferate the organisms temperature is necessary. Due to this classify the organisms,
    • 1-Pschyrophiles: have optimum temperature range of -2 to 7*c.
    • 2-Mesophiles: have 10 to 40*c.
    • 3-Thermophiles: have 43 to 66*c .
    • Organisms also need water for growth.
  • Why Preserve Meat???
    • Delays product spoilage
    • Extends life of the product
    • Improves product quality
  • Preserve Meat
    • To preserve the meat temperature must be
    • 1- : -2*c by chilling or freezing.
    • 2- : 66*c by pasteurization , cooking or sterilization.
    • To preserve the meat , remove the water by dehydration , freezing , curing.
  • Types of Preservation Techniques
    • Freezing
    • Cooking
    • Dehydration
    • Chemical
    • Fermentation
    • Irradiation
  • Types of Meat Preservation
    • Drying-
      • Removal of water from meat.
    • Heating-
      • Kills bacteria if temperatures reaches 160 degrees.
    • Refrigeration-
      • Slows the growth of bacteria
    • Freezing-
      • 20 degrees below zero eliminates bacterial growth
    • Acidification-
      • Low pH retards bacterial growth
  • Types of Meat Preservation
    • 6. Irradiation -
      • Low levels kill bacteria in fresh meat products
    • Canning-
      • Packaging meat into sealed containers and heating meat to kill bacteria
    • Curing-
      • Compounds make meats inhospitable to microbial growth.
    • Salting and Sugaring-
      • Prevents microbial growth
    • Smoking-
      • Forms antibacterial chemicals to the meats surface
  • Typical Methods of Food Preservation :
    • High temperature
      • Pasteurization kills spoilage and pathogenic organisms (1864 – Pasteur)
      • Longer temperatures and times can sterilize foods
    • Low temperature
      • Refrigeration or freezing inhibits microbial growth
  • Typical Methods of Food Preservation :
    • Dehydration
      • Air drying
    • Chemical preservatives
      • Inhibitors of organism growth such as salt, sodium nitrite, and propionates
    • Bactofugation
      • Removing bacteria from liquids by centrifugation
  • Freezing
    • Optimum temperature (0 °F or lower)
    • Meat freeze at -1.4*C
    • Works by completely stopping enzyme activity & inhibiting spoilage microorganisms
          • Bacteria
          • Yeasts
          • Molds
  • Freezing
    • REMEMBER: Thaw meat at refrigeration temps or in the microwave
  • How long with frozen meat last?
    • Beef – 12 months
            • Pork - 6 months
    • Lamb – 6-9
    • months
    • Poultry – 3-6 months
  • Disadvantages of freezing
    • Frozen meat stored too long become dry , less palatable and rancid.
    • After thawing it is less durable than fresh-killed or chilled meat.
    • When frozen meat is thawed it weeps or drips which consist mainly of water, salt, protein and demaged blood corpuscles.
    • Loss of weight due to drip in beef is up to 3% while in mutton , lamb or pork loss is less than beef.
    • Yellowish –brown or whitish areas seen on the surface of frozen meats.
    • It is due to excessive drying of the surface.
    • Phenomenon involves the formation of a
    • condensed layer of the muscular tissue just under the surface. this prevents moisture coming to the surface from the depth of the meat.
  • Chilling of meat
    • It is useful when meat is stored for short time up to 35 days.
    • It is kept at b/w -1.4*c and 1*c preferably in the dark as light has the effect of oxidizing fats.
    • Atmosphere keep dry to prevent the mould formation
    • 5-10%CO2 helps to prevent the growth of mould and bacteria.
    • It is important that temperature does not reach -1.4*c otherwise meat is frozen..
  • Cold shortening
    • Toughness develops in lamb carcasses, if they are exposed to low temperature within about 16 hours after slaughtering
    • pH is about 6.3 and ATP levels are high ,lowering of the temperature causes the muscle to contract. It starts normally at 15*c and become greater down to 0*c.
    • Beef carcass do not chilled quickly b/c of the thickness of the muscles.
    • Due to rapid fall in the pH there is no problem of cold shortening in the pig carcass.
  • Cooking
    • Works by heating products to high temperatures to kill microorganisms
    • 2 types of cooking
      • Pasteurization
      • Sterilization
  • Pasteurized Cooking
    • Products are cooked to 150-170 °F
    • Kills most (but not all) microorganisms
    • Product must be REFRIGERATED
    • Example: “Hotdogs”
  • Sterilized Cooking
    • Products cooked under pressure to 250 °F
    • All microorganisms killed
    • Products are shelf stable
    • Example: Canned Hams
  • Smoking
    • - Meat, fish and some other foods may be both preserved and flavored through the use of smoke, typically in a smoke house . The combination of heat to dry the food without cooking it, and the addition of the aromatic (phenolic)hydrocarbons from the smoke preserves the food.
  • Vacuum packing
    • Vacuum-packing stores food in a vacuum environment, usually in an air-tight bag or bottle. The vacuum environment strips bacteria of oxygen needed for survival, slowing spoiling.
  • Canning
    • Canning : food is sealed in a container such as a can or glass jar and heated to kill all living organisms, or at least to ensure that there will be no growth of residual organisms.
    • Acidic foods should be heated to 100 °C, whereas nonacidic foods should be heated to 121°C. Properly canned foods may not be sterile b/c heating them for the time required might alter the foods’ taste and nutritional value.
    • Since some of the anaerobic organisms that can grow in cans are from the genus Clostridium , food from a can that is visibly altered, ex. bulged can, should not be eaten .
  • Dehydration
    • Oldest forms of preserving meat
    • Works by removing water from the product
      • water is required by all microorganisms to grow NO WATER = NO GROWTH
  • Dehydration
    • Dehydrate by air drying, heating, or freezing
    • Example: “Beef Jerky”
  • Chemical
    • Chemicals inhibit microorganism growth
          • Salting or curing draws moisture from the meat through a process of osmosis.
    • Examples
      • Salt
      • Sodium Nitrite
      • Sodium Lactate
  • Chemical Preservatives
    • Sodium Benzoate
    • Sorbate
    • Proprionates
  • Chemical Preservatives
    • Sulfur Dioxide
    • Nitrates and Nitrites
    • BHA/BHT
  • Chemical
    • Other benefits:
      • Add flavor to the product
      • Improve product shelf life
      • Develop a pink cured-meat color
    • All Chemicals added to meat are FDA approved
  • Fermentation
    • Works by changing sugar into acid
    • Acid prevents microorganisms from growing
    • Tangy flavor and special texture developed
    • Example: “Pepperoni”
  • Modified Atmosphere Preservation
    • MAP – Modified Atmosphere Packaging
    • Carbon Dioxide
    • Types
      • Hypobaric
      • Vacuum Packaging
      • MAP
      • Equilibrium Modified Atmosphere
      • Controlled Atmosphere Packaging
  • MAP Equipment
  • Irradiation
    • A new process to make food SAFER!!!!
    • Works by exposing meat to radiant energy
    • Destroys most (but not all) microorganisms
    “ Radura” sign on labels
  • Irradiation
    • Reduces spoilage
    • Irradiated meat is still nutritious
    • Irradiated meat needs to be COOKED
  • Irradiation unit
  • The 5 Factors in the Curing Process
    • Flavor
    • Color
    • Tenderness
    • Preservation
    • Yield
  • Preservation
    • 3 main ingredients to preservation process
    • Salt
    • Sugar
    • Nitrite
  • Flavor
    • Flavor is the primary reason consumers purchase meat more than once
    • Salt- Predominant flavor in most processed meats
    • Sugar- Used to reduce the harshness of the salt flavor
    • Nitrite- Provide a characteristic flavor you recognize as a ham flavor
    • Smoked- Contains a smoke flavoring rather than being traditionally smoked
  • Color and Tenderness
    • Color- If nitrate is used the meat will take on a distinctive red color.
    • Tenderness- The type of process will affect the tenderness of the meat.
    • Examples: Jerky the meat is dry and tough
    • Ham usually fairly tender
  • Yield
    • When meat products are cooked and smoked, some water and juices are lost, making the product weigh less, thus reducing the product’s value.
    • Moisture- Helps prevent moisture loss during cooking and smoking
    • Increased Profits- Adds weight to products increasing the price of the product.
    • Curing- Used to deliver cure ingredients into the fresh meat prior to curing.
  • The Curing Process
    • Non-Meat Ingredients
    • Not meat!!!
    • Ingredients
    • Increase product yield
    • Aid in color, texture or flavor development
    • Increase product shelf-life
    • Increase process efficiency
