USE OF MECHANICALLY DEBONED MEAT IN GROUND BEEF PATTIES Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Palatability of cooked patties from seven formulations of ground beef patties containing 0 −30% of added mechanically deboned beef was characterized. Frozen patties were broiled 9 min on an electric grill at 230°C to a “medium” degree of doneness and served to a 7‐member trained panel. Mean panel ratings for overall acceptability were greater for patties containing 5, 10, 15 and 20% MDB than for the control (0% MDB). Patties containing 25 and 30% MDB had significantly lower flavor and acceptability ratings than control. As the percentages of added MDB increased, panel ratings for tenderness and juiciness increased. The amount of detectable connective tissue decreased significantly as the percentage of added MDB increased. Copyright © 1977, Wiley Blackwell. All rights reserved
