Research developments in pale, soft, and exudative turkey meat in North America



Research developments in pale, soft, and exudative turkey meat in North America



Poultry Science 88(7): 1513-1517



Pale, soft, and exudative (PSE) refers to meat that is pale in color, forms soft gels, and has poor water-holding ability. Most frequently used in reference to pork, this defective meat is being seen with increasing frequency in turkey and broiler processing plants. It has been estimated that this PSE-type meat represents 5 to 40% of meat that is produced in the poultry industry. With the increased production of further-processed products, this PSE problem has become more apparent in the turkey industry. It has been estimated that due to the high incidence, a single turkey processing plant could be losing $2 to 4 million per year, resulting in a loss in excess of $200 million dollars by the turkey industry alone.
