Instrumental evaluation of fat quality in heavy pigs. Experimental findings

Instrumental evaluation of fat quality in heavy pigs. Experimental findings

Annali della Facolta di Medicina Veterinaria, Universita di Parma 12: 171-182

The possibility of developing an objective method of assessing fat firmness in heavy pigs was studied. To induce different levels of saturation in depot fat 58 pigs, in 2 groups, were given a standard diet based on maize or a diet with wheat replacing maize. Pigs were slaughtered at about 175 kg and fat firmness estimated using a Carcass Fat Hardness meter. Fat was also assessed sensorially and iodine number estimated.
