Unformatted text preview: 1 Beef facts:- U.S. beef production in 2003 was 27.09 billion pounds, valued at about $27 billion. - U.S. beef exports in 2002 totaled more than $3.2 billion. - American consumer demand for beef each year is more than 60 pounds per person. Consumption peaked at 89 pounds in 1976 when beef surpluses were at record levels. 2 Top Ten concepts to understand 1. meat composition 2. muscle fibers and connective tissue 3. meat color characteristics 4. dark vs white meat 5. differences in fish meat 6. fat in meat 7. methods for meat preservation 8. factors affecting texture/tenderness 9. methods for tenderizing meat 10. mad cow disease 3 4 5 Nutrition of Meat Excellent source of: protein Iron vitamin A B vitamins- especially vitamin B 12 6 1.)

Muscle Fibers (50% meat protein = contractile filaments) Long, thin cells (fibers) that contract. Contraction caused by actin and myosin (both are contractile proteins) These fibers form bundles that make up muscles Muscle bundles are connected to 9 Quick Anatomy Lesson: 10 2. Connective Tissue (20% of meat protein) Proteins that surround muscle bundles and anchors muscle to bones Types: Collagen Elastin 11 3. Pigments (30% of meat protein) Two primary pigments: 1. Hemoglobin- oxygen transport pigment in blood 2. Myoglobin- oxygen storage pigment in muscle 12 Myoglobin Meat color depends on the state myoglobin is in. Purple- freshly cut meat; deprived of oxygen deoxymyoglobin Red- meat in contact with oxygen oxymyoglobin Brown- change caused by bacteria, extreme temperatures, salt and low oxygen metmyoglobin 13 14 15 Why do chickens have dark (thigh) and white (breast) meat?...
