Abstract

Male lambs, male yearlings and ewes (6 of each) were sacrificed and thigh muscles (semimembranosus, SM and semitendinosus, ST) were used within 1 h post-mortem for studies on age-related changes. For studies on post-mortem carcass conditioning treatments, ewe carcasses were subjected to either Achilles tendon suspension at 2-3C for 24 h (direct chilling, C1) or pelvic suspension at room temp. (26 2C) for 7 h followed by chilling at 2-3C for 17 h (delayed chilling, C2) or left untreated (unconditioned, fresh, F). SM and ST muscles were dissected out within 1 h post-mortem from F-carcasses and after 24 h post-mortem from conditioned (C1 or C2) carcasses. The effect of age of the animal was marginal (P > 0.05) on collagen content and very significant (P < 0.001) on its solubility on heating, solubility decreasing with age. The stretching/contraction of muscles due to post-mortem conditioning of ewe carcasses had marginal (P > 0.05) influence on both content and solubility of collagen. Cooking under pressure resulted in significantly (P < 0.001) greater solubility than cooking without pressure. The interaction age x cooking was highly significant (P < 0.001) whereas conditioning x cooking was not significant (P > 0.05).
