Minimization of Oxidative Flavor Deterioration in Refrigerated, Batter‐Breaded Restructured Pork Nuggets by Glandless Cottonseed Flour in the Meat or Coating Academic Article uri icon


  • Pork shoulders were restructured into nuggets with 0.5% NaCl, 0.25% polyphosphate and 3.0% water or with the three additives plus 1.5% defatted glandless cottonseed flour (GCF). Restructured nuggets were batter‐breaded with either commercial coating ingredients or commercial ingredients plus GCF. The coated nuggets were prefried in vegetable oil and stored at 4°C for 0 or 9 days before reheating when needed. Thiobarbituric acid values and sensory warmed‐over flavor scores of products showed that oxidative flavor deterioration in batter‐breaded pork nuggets can be minimized by incorporating GCF into either the meat or the coating system. The GCF additions did not have adverse effects on coating pick‐up and palatability. Copyright © 1988, Wiley Blackwell. All rights reserved
