Abstract:

Emphasizing the properties of meat proteins, this volume has a broad-based examination of the factors that affect the process of converting muscle to meat. Unlike some books dealing with this subject, Muscle as Food provides two complete chapters on the unique properties of poultry and fish muscle. Among the topics covered are: properties of the contractile proteins biochemical and physical changes during the conversion process changes occuring during storage and preservation functional properties of the myofibrillar system sensory and nutritional composition. This volume is a valuable teaching tool and reference source for students and researchers in the food, meat, and animal sciences.
