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 X-rays whatever ...
Evaluation of the safety and efficacy of the organic acids lactic and acetic acids to reduce microbiological surface contamination on pork carcasses and pork cuts
(EFSA Journal, 2018-12-12)
Studies evaluating the safety and efficacy of lactic and acetic acids to reduce microbiological surface contamination on pork carcasses pre-chill and pork meat cuts post-chill were assessed. Lactic acid treatments consisted ...
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. Forty-eight pigs were ...
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)
Hazard analysis approaches for certain small retail establishments and food donations: second scientific opinion
(EFSA Journal, 2018-11-07)
In 2017, EFSA published a ‘simplified’ food safety management system (FSMS) for certain small retail establishments (butcher, grocer, baker, fish and ice cream shop) based on the application of prerequisite programme (PRP) ...
Public health risks associated with food‐borne parasites
Parasites are important food‐borne pathogens. Their complex lifecycles, varied transmission routes, and prolonged periods between infection and symptoms mean that the public health burden and relative importance of different ...
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 during prolonged ...
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 acids and different ...
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 proteolysis index ...
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 inhibit growth of the ...
