The objective of this research was to investigate the effect of dietary cottonseed meal (CSM) supplementation on carcass and meat quality characteristics of Hanwoo (Korean cattle) bulls. Twenty two months-old-Hanwoo bulls of eight heads (4 heads per treatments) were fed for 5 months on a diet with or without (control) CSM (500 g/head/day). The samples of M. longissimus dorsi from carcasses were used for the quality measurement. Dietary CSM supplementation did not affect the carcass traits of bulls and pH value, drip loss, water-holding capacity and fatty acid composition of beef loin. Crude protein and crude ash content of beef loin were significantly (p<0.05) higher in beef loin from bulls fed CSM than in the control. During storage of 5 days at 4℃, CIE a*, b*, C* and total color values were significantly (p<0.05) higher in beef loin from bulls fed CSM than in the control. Overall, the present results indicate that dietary CSM supplementation may improve the oxidation stability of Hanwoo beef loin.
This study was carried out to investigate the effect of amino acids complex and choline supplementation on the antioxidant enzyme activities and oxidative stability of Hanwoo (Korean cattle) beef. Fifteen months-old-Hanwoo steers were assigned into two groups and fed on a basal diets with or without amino acids complex (≥25% L-lysine monohydrochloride+≥8% DL- methionine)+choline (≥25% choline chloride) for 12 months. After slaughter, the M. longissimus from carcasses were stored at 4℃ for 7 days. Catalase, glutathione peroxidase and total superoxide dismutase activities were found to be unaffected by supplementation of amino acids+choline. After 2 days of storage, significant decline (p<0.05) in lipid oxidation (2-thiobarbituric acid reactive substances, TBARS) was observed when supplemented with amino acids+choline. However, supplementation of amino acids+choline maintained meat color as indicated by higher CIE L* (Lightness), a* (Redness), b* (Yellowness) and C* (Chroma) values during storage. It was therefore concluded that supplemental amino acids+choline could stabilize the lipid oxidation stability and meat color in Hanwoo beef.
The current study was carried out to investigate the effect of addition of Rhus veniciflua Stokes oil (RVSO) and black garlic extract (BGE) on the lipid oxidation in Hanwoo (Korean cattle) beef model systems. The RVSO at 0.2% inhibited the TBARS (2-thiobarbituric acid reactive substances) formation when tested in liposome model system. The antioxidant effect of RVSO was further found to be similar to 0.2% butylated hydroxy toluene (BHT) and 0.01% vitamin E. On the other hand, BGE at 0.1% also showed the inhibition of TBARS formation in 4% NaCl-added Hanwoo beef patty and found to have slightly lower (p<0.05) effect than 0.1% vitamin E but higher (p<0.05) effect than 0.1% BHT. Results of this study indicated that both RVSO and BGE possess strong antioxidant effects and help to increase the oxidative stability in Hanwoo beef products.
The present study investigated the dealing mode and the quality of Chuncheon Dakgalbi on marketing. Distribution of chicken as raw material for Dakgalbi at 100 restaurants in Chuncheon was studied. Boneless chicken was sold at 89, bone-in chicken was sold at 9 and both of them were sold at 2 restaurants, respectively. Consumer's taste for Dakgalbi was surveyed at different area such as apartment (A), university (B) and downtown area (C) in Chuncheon. The redness and taste score of Dakgalbi was found to be significantly higher (p<0.05) among the members of family (A) as compared to others. Saccharinity and salinity of Dakgalbi were rated significant (p<0.05) among university student (B) than other consumers. In conclusion, quality characteristics of Dakgalbi differs with marketing area or consumer group in Chuncheon.
