There are chapters on fat, protein and other components in meat, changes in meat pre- and post-slaughter, and additives such as phosphates, salts, hydrocolloids, proteins, carbohydrates and fillers. Part two reviews raw materials, additives, manufacturing processes and representative recipes from around the world for a range of particular meat products. It includes chapters on cooked ham and bacon, cooked, fresh and raw fermented sausages, raw fermented and non-fermented salami, cured air-dried products, burgers and patties, brawn and meat jelly, canned and marinated meat. The final part of the book discusses quality and safety issues, particularly meat microbiology.Meat products handbook is a standard reference for R&D, quality and production managers in meat processing.
