MYOFIBRIL FRAGMENTATION AND SHEAR RESISTANCE OF THREE BOVINE MUSCLES DURING POSTMORTEM STORAGE

MYOFIBRIL FRAGMENTATION AND SHEAR RESISTANCE OF THREE BOVINE MUSCLES DURING POSTMORTEM STORAGE ABSTRACT Samples were removed from bovine longissimus (L), semitendinosus (ST) and psoas major (PM) muscles at 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 10 or 13 days postmortem stored at 2°C or 25°C. Myofibril fragmentation index (MFI) and Warner‐Bratzler (W‐B) shear‐force values were determined on steaks from each muscle. Myofibril fragmentation index (MFI) was determined quantitatively by measuring the absorbance of a myofibril suspension. It was observed that MFI increased during postmortem storage for L and ST, but increased only slightly for PM. These results paralleled those changes in myofibrils observed with phase and polarized light microscopy. Both MFI and W‐B shear‐force values changed greatly from 1 to 3 days postmortem with a lesser change occurring after 3 days in L and ST muscles. In PM muscle, however, only a slight change in MFI and W‐B shear‐force occurred during postmortem storage. Elevated storage temperature (25°C) caused an accelerated change in both MFI and W‐B shear‐force in L and ST muscles; however, storage temperature had little effect on PM muscle. L and ST muscles responded similarly to postmortem storage, but PM muscle was characteristically different from the L and ST muscles. These findings demonstrate the differences and similarities of muscles to postmortem storage and further elucidate the role of myofibrillar proteins in meat tenderness. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Food Science Wiley

Abstract

ABSTRACT Samples were removed from bovine longissimus (L), semitendinosus (ST) and psoas major (PM) muscles at 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 10 or 13 days postmortem stored at 2°C or 25°C. Myofibril fragmentation index (MFI) and Warner‐Bratzler (W‐B) shear‐force values were determined on steaks from each muscle. Myofibril fragmentation index (MFI) was determined quantitatively by measuring the absorbance of a myofibril suspension. It was observed that MFI increased during postmortem storage for L and ST, but increased only slightly for PM. These results paralleled those changes in myofibrils observed with phase and polarized light microscopy. Both MFI and W‐B shear‐force values changed greatly from 1 to 3 days postmortem with a lesser change occurring after 3 days in L and ST muscles. In PM muscle, however, only a slight change in MFI and W‐B shear‐force occurred during postmortem storage. Elevated storage temperature (25°C) caused an accelerated change in both MFI and W‐B shear‐force in L and ST muscles; however, storage temperature had little effect on PM muscle. L and ST muscles responded similarly to postmortem storage, but PM muscle was characteristically different from the L and ST muscles. These findings demonstrate the differences and similarities of muscles to postmortem storage and further elucidate the role of myofibrillar proteins in meat tenderness.
