Effect of electrical stimulation and age of animals on the quality of beef hams produced from semitendinosus muscle



Effect of electrical stimulation and age of animals on the quality of beef hams produced from semitendinosus muscle



Polish Journal of Food and Nutrition Sciences 13(4): 373-378



The paper presents results of a research aimed at determining the effect of high-voltage electrical stimulation and age of animals on the major quality attributes of beef hams. The experimental material consisted of beef meat (semitendinosus muscle) originated from heifers aged ca. 18 months and from cows aged ca. 10 years. Slaughter was performed ca. 12 h after resting of animals in lairage.
