Effects of Feeding Regimes on Lamb Meat Flavour - Sample Collection and Processing
To collect samples of loin and topside from 108 lambs, and arrange sampling, cut-up and storage of muscles for future analysis. The samples collected will be for:
MSA consumer panel analysis,
trained sensory analysis and
chemical analysis of BCFAs (4-methyloctanoic, 4-ethyloctanoic and 4-methylnonanoic acids), volatile components ( aldehydes and ketones) and pastoral flavours (para-cresol and 3-methylindole).
Success in Achieving Milestone
The samples were successfully collected for the MSA consumer panel and trained sensory analysis, and chemical analysis of BCFAs, p-cresol and 3-methylindole. There was some problems with number of animals, misallocation of animals for slaughter and an insufficient number of samples from each carcass. It is believed that this will not impact detrimentally on the outcomes of the study.
