this parasite will form cysts in tissue if ingested and was once a major concern in pork
this is often used in the producction of fermented meats and is known as good bacteria
this pathogen is a major concern in beef and can cause hemolytic uremic syndrome
this bacteria forms spores that arent killed at cooking temps and are anerobic
a large concern in the poultry industry found inside eggs and was number one cause of food related deaths in 2011
what is HACCP and what does it stand for?
- hazard analysis critical control points
- it is a system used to help in food safety
name the three types of hazards and give an example of each.
- Chemical-->bleach/ pesticides
- physical-->glass, metal, wood, bone
name a benifit and a downfall of hormone use
- increase growth efficiency
- less marbling
would you expect loin or limb muscles to be more tender why?
loin, less collagen
name a positive and a negative of bos indicus cattle
- very hardy
- poor quality meats
what are common names for fat deposits and in what order do they begin developing
- visceral: 1 KPH kidney pelvic heart
- intramuscular: 4 marbling
- intermuscular: 2/3 seamfat
- subcutaneous: 2/3 backfat
identify wheter red or white muscle fibers are associated with each
4: rapid contraction
5:use oxidative energy metabolism
__ is the color of meat with cure added but not yet cooked.
__ is the fresh meat pigment that is brown in color.
__ is the state of fresh meat pigment in cooked uncured product.
__, __, and __, are all products of irreversible reactions.
- denatured metmyoglobin
__ is the pigment in cured cooked meat.
__is the fresh meat color related to bloom or exposure to oxygen that causes a bright red color
what are the nutrients that meat is a great source of?
protein, B-vitamins, riboflavin, iron
what is true of clostridium botulinum?
- produces a toxin that is injected into human faces during cosmetic surgery
- it is a problem in canning (anerobic)
tell wheather each increases or decreases dressing percentage:
1: manure stuck to hide
2: animals off feed for 8 hours before slaughter
3: animal is fat
4: animal is heavily muscled
- 1: decrease
- 2: increase
- 3: decrease
- 4: increase
when meat pH is high having a lot of negative charges, will it hold more water or less at its isoelectric point?
what chain of events occurs when the animal is exanguinated
- no oxygen delivered
- anerobic metabolism begins
- lactic acid production
- waste/heat not able to be removed
- pH drops
explain DFD and PSE.
- Dark firm dry: long term stress depletes glycogen stores less lactic acid keeps pH higher so it can hold more water
- Pale soft exudative: short term stress leads to lactic acid build up just before death to decrease pH and water holding capacity
what 6 factors influence bacterial growth and why are each a concern in meat?
- Food--> meat has supply of nutrients for bacterial growth
- acidity--> meat is at a pH of around 5.8 which is good for bacterial growth as they like 4.6-7.5
- temperature--> if not chilled or cooked properly meat is a good temp for bacteria to grow 40-140 0F for 4 hours
- time--> if held in danger zone for 4 hours bacterial growth is optimized
- oxygen-->ground meats have been exposed to oxygen for an aerobic environment and most bacteria are aerobes
- moisture--> bacteria need >.85 water activity most meats are about .99 so they have water for growth

- fat from lean
- high value from low value
