1 Ag Science Meat Product Quality

2 Nutritional values of meat products  The physical composition of meat is what can be measured  The muscle (lean), fat, bone, and tendons are the physical features  Chemical composition and nutritional values are directly related

3  A. The chemical composition of a muscle determines its nutritive value as meat. Muscles are made of water, protein, fat, and minerals. Vitamins like A, D, E, and K are in the fat, and B vitamins in the muscle.

4  B. The nutritive value of meat provides a balance of vitamins and minerals and is known as nutrient-dense. Nutrient density is a measurement of the food value. This compares the number of calories in food to the amount of essential nutrients available.

5 Vitamins  1. Iron helps to build and maintain blood hemoglobin.  2. Zinc helps with tissue development and growth.  3. B vitamins (e.g., niacin, riboflavin, B6, B12, and thiamine) and are an excellent source of protein.

20 Beef Grading System  Beef carcasses are graded for yield and quality grades, based on maturity and marbling

21 Beef Grading System  Yield grade is an estimate of the percent yield for the four primal cuts of beef: chuck, rib, loin, and round. Yield grade = cutability.  A. Quality grading is important for consumer satisfaction. The color and texture affect meat palatability, flavor, and juiciness.

22 Beef Grading System  1. Maturity Maturity refers to the physiological age Maturity indicators are bone characteristics, ossification of cartilage, and color/texture of the rib eye muscle.

23 Quality Grading  2. Marbling (the intramuscular fat in muscle) This can be evaluated between the 12th and 13th ribs. The amount and distribution of the marbling in the rib eye is evaluated at the cut surface

24 Yield Grade  B. USDA yield grades for beef carcasses are rated from 1 to 5.  Yield Grade 1 is the highest yielding carcass, and Yield Grade 5 lowest.  To find yield grades, a carcass is evaluated on the following factors:  1. Amount of external fat—The external fat is measured at the 12th rib

25 Yield Grade  2. Hot carcass weight— Taken at the harvesting facility before the carcass is chilled

26 Yield Grade  3. Kidney/pelvic/heart (KPH) fat—The KPH is shown as a percentage of the carcass weight.  4. Rib eye —The area of the rib eye muscle is graded by using a 12 th rib  Yield grade = [(2.50 x adjusted fat thickness, inches) percent of kidney, pelvic, and heart + ( x hot carcass weight, pounds) - (0.32 x area rib eye, square inches)]

28 Quality Grade

29 How are quality and yield grades of live animals estimated?  The ability to estimate quality and yield grades of live animals helps livestock producers and breeders evaluate livestock and determine the correct time to market animals.  Buyers and packers also evaluate correctness of condition and estimate yields  Ultrasound technology helps with this process but visual evaluation is faster and less expensive.

30 How are quality and yield grades of live animals estimated? Conformation describes the animal’s external form and shape.  Visual evaluation of the different stages can be used to predict carcass composition.

31 How are quality and yield grades of live animals estimated?  D. Major factors to consider when evaluating livestock and estimating quality and yield grades: 1. Age/maturity of the animal—Evaluate bone structure, teeth, and evidence of the chine bone. 2. Marbling potential—Reference points on an animal (loin, ham, leg of a lamb) 3. Hide color—  Beef animals with black hides typically perform higher on quality tests 4. External fat—The loin, tail-head, and dock

32 What is the swine grading system? What are the factors that affect quality and yield grades of swine carcasses?  The swine grading system varies slightly, depending on the class of carcass.  Various factors can affect the quality and yield grades.

33 What is the swine grading system? What are the factors that affect quality and yield grades of swine carcasses?  A. The swine grading system uses muscling scores and back fat thickness to determine USDA Grades. Barrow, gilt, sow, boar, and stag are the harvest swine carcass classes. Barrows and gilts are classed together with grade standards. Sows have different grade standards. Boars and stags are not commonly used in major swine carcass production because the boar flavor is unacceptable for grading; therefore, no official grade standards exist for boars or stags.

34 What is the swine grading system? What are the factors that affect quality and yield grades of swine carcasses?  B. Grades for barrows and gilts are based on the quality characteristics of the lean and expected combined yields of the four lean cuts: ham, loin, Boston shoulder, and picnic shoulder.  1. The degree of muscling of a swine carcass is categorized as: a. Muscle Score #1—thin/inferior muscling b. Muscle Score #2—average c. Muscle Score #3—thick/superior muscling

35

36 What is the swine grading system? What are the factors that affect quality and yield grades of swine carcasses?  2. The whole carcass and the loin eye area are used to determine the muscling score. The area between the 10th and 11th rib is used to measure carcass muscle. The levels of quality are “acceptable” and “unacceptable.” The quality is determined by viewing the cut surface of the loin at the 10th rib.

37 What is the swine grading system? What are the factors that affect quality and yield grades of swine carcasses? a. Quality characteristics (e.g., gray-pink in color, fine muscle fibers, and good marbling) are indicators of an acceptable lean/meat.

38 What is the swine grading system? What are the factors that affect quality and yield grades of swine carcasses? b. Yields of the lean cuts (ham, loin, Boston shoulder, and picnic shoulder) will differ due to the amount of fatness, muscling, and skeletal size.  USDA Grade for swine carcasses is determined by using the following formula:  (4.0 × last rib back fat thickness (in inches) – 1.0 × muscle score).  The muscle score is determined by using the following: thin = 1.0, average = 2.0, and thick = 3.0.

39 What is the lamb grading system? What are the factors that affect quality and yield grades of lamb carcasses?  Sheep are classified by sex and maturity.  Sheep are graded for quality and yield grades. Young lamb carcasses (2 to 14 months of age) have a characteristic break joint on one of their shanks after the front legs are removed. On mutton carcasses, the break joints have ossified. Yearling mutton carcasses range in age from 12 to 15 months. The yearling mutton differs from a traditional mutton carcass by the color of the lean (pinkish red to a dark red) and shape of the rib bones.

40 What is the lamb grading system? What are the factors that affect quality and yield grades of lamb carcasses?  A. The quality grade in a lamb carcass is determined by the maturity, conformation, and flank streaking.  1. Maturity is determined by bone color/shape and lean color.

41 What is the lamb grading system? What are the factors that affect quality and yield grades of lamb carcasses?  2. Conformation of a carcass is the overall thickness of the muscling. Lamb carcasses are not ribbed; therefore, the rib- eye areas are not exposed and cannot be used for an overall evaluation of marbling.

42 What is the lamb grading system? What are the factors that affect quality and yield grades of lamb carcasses?  3. Flank streaking is used to predict marbling in a lamb carcass. The streaks of fat in the flank muscle are used to determine marbling.

43 What is the lamb grading system? What are the factors that affect quality and yield grades of lamb carcasses?  The grades for lambs are: a. Prime (highest) b. Choice (most lambs fall into this category) c. Good d. Utility

44 What is the lamb grading system? What are the factors that affect quality and yield grades of lamb carcasses?  B. Yield grades are an estimate of the retail cuts from the leg, loin, rack, and shoulder. The yield grade of a lamb carcass can be found by using the following equation: (Back fat × 10) For example, if a lamb carcass had 0.20 inches of back fat, the yield grade would equal (0.20 × 10 = 2.0) = yield grade of 2.4.

45 What is the lamb grading system? What are the factors that affect quality and yield grades of lamb carcasses? The yield grades of lamb carcasses range from USDA 1 to 5. USDA 1 is the most desirable, showing minimum fat and heavy muscle.  USDA 3 grade is average.  USDA 5 grade is the least desirable, showing light muscle and heavy fat.
