- ... Intramuscular fat (IMF) content is critical in the determination of eating quality. At present the Australian lamb industry has no ability to measure IMF as carcases are not split and processing speeds of up to 15 animals per minute prohibit the use of traditional methods. Consequently, the potential for a hand-held Near- Infrared (NIR) device to predict the IMF content of lamb topside in-situ was ...

- ... Beef is an animal food sensitive to deterioration due to its rich nutrient content. Therefore, some preservation techniques are applied. These include vacuum packaging, a modified atmosphere, a controlled atmosphere and an edible film coating. In this study, it was aimed to extend the shelf life of beef using vacuum packaging (VP) and chitosan coating with vacuum packaging (CC + VP). For this purp ...
