      The aim of this thesis was to elucidate role of small heat shock proteins (sHSPs) in the development of tenderness in beef. Data in this thesis were predominantly obtained from bull M. longissimus dorsi aged at -1.5°C for ...
    • Rapid on-line Glycogen measurement and prediction of ultimate pH in slaughter beef

      Lomiwes, Dominic (Auckland University of Technology, 2008)
      The rapid determination of glycogen on indicator muscle immediately after slaughter is advantageous as it permits the prediction of a muscle’s ultimate pH (pHu) and allows the identification of high pHu meat carcasses by ...
