Application of temperature and ultrasound as corrective measures to decrease the adhesiveness in dry-cured ham. Influence on free amino acid and volatile compound profile
The impact of low temperature treatment and its combination with ultrasound has been evaluated in order to correct texture defects in dry-cured hams. A total of 26 dry-cured hams, classified as high ...
Influence of high-pressure processing at different temperatures on free amino acid and volatile compound profiles of dry-cured ham
The effect of high pressure processing (HPP) (600 MPa during 6 min) at different temperatures (0, 20 and 35 °C) in dry-cured ham has been studied in order to optimize the technique and reduce its impact ...
Emulsion gels containing n-3 fatty acids and condensed tannins designed as functional fat replacers
(Food Research International, 2018-07-30)
The purpose of this study was to ascertain the potential of several food-grade emulsion (O/W) gels (GEs) for use as healthier fat replacers. The emulsions, formulated with a lipid phase rich in n-3 fatty ...
New insights on Listeria monocytogenes growth in pressurised cooked ham: A piezo-stimulation effect enhanced by organic acids during storage
(International Journal of Food Microbiology, 2018-10-06)
The aim of the present study was to understand growth and survival responses of Listeria monocytogenes during the storage of high pressure processed (HPP) cooked ham formulated with organic acids to ...
Feasibility study of smartphone-based Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) for salted minced meat composition diagnostics at different temperatures
(Food Chemistry, 2018-11-10)
This research work evaluates the feasibility of a smartphone-based spectrometer (740–1070 nm) for salted minced meat composition diagnostics at industrial scale. A commercially available smartphone-based ...
Texture characterization of dry-cured ham using multi energy X-ray analysis
Multi energy X-ray sensors are able to differentiate and quantify X-rays of different energies. In contrast to conventional sensors, which simply record the overall energy of the ...
Effect of sex and RYR1 gene mutation on the muscle proteomic profile and main physiological biomarkers in pigs at slaughter
(Meat Science, 2018-03-27)
Gender and RYR1 gene mutation might have an effect on the muscle metabolic characteristics and on the animal's stress at slaughter, which could influence the process of muscle-to-meat conversion. ...
Fermented meats (and the symptomatic case of the Flemish food pyramid): Are we heading towards the vilification of a valuable food group?
(International Journal of Food Microbiology, 2018-02-05)
Antimicrobial and antioxidant effects of combined high pressure processingand sage in beef burgers during prolonged chilled storage
(Innovative Food Science and Emerging Technologies, 2018-04-17)
The combined effect of sage (0.3 and 0.6%) and high pressure processing (HPP) [300 MPa (10 min, 9.9 °C) and 600 MPa (10 min, 10.2 °C)] on the antimicrobial and antioxidant characteristics of beef burgers ...
Effect of proteolysis index level on instrumental adhesiveness, free amino acids content and volatile compounds profile of dry-cured ham
(Food Research International, 2018-03-02)
Defective textures in dry-cured ham are a common problem that causes important economic losses in the ham industry. An increase of proteolysis during the dry-cured ham processing may lead to high ...
