How do ratite meats compare with beef?: Implications for the ratite industry

Emu and ostrich meats were compared with beef to identify and quantify their sensory attributes. A sensory panel was used to compare US Department of Agriculture choice top sirloin beef with emu and ostrich meat, both ground and intact forms. Comparisons of sensory quality and acceptability were made after zero, two, four and six months of frozen storage. Differences in flavour, juiciness and texture were detected between ratite meats and beef (the control).
