EFFECTS OF ELECTRICAL STIMULATION ON MEAT TISSUE AND MUSCLE PROPERTIES‐A REVIEW Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Electrical stimulation of‐pre‐rigor muscle has received considerable attention recently as a means to increase tenderness or alleviate the effects of cold shortening. The process is being used commercially in New Zealand for accelerated conditioning of lambs. Research in the U.S. has involved varied methods of electrical stimulation on different types of slaughter animals. Electrical stimulation is also being investigated as a means to accelerate hot processing. This paper will background the research on electrical stimulation and discuss future research needs.
