Use of edible coating for extending shelf life of vacuum-packaged lamb meat, at different temperatures


Lamb meat consumption has been increasing in Brazil and product quality, related to food safety, sensory characteristics and convenience are important factors for consumers. Traditional packaging for meat show short shelf life and/or undesirable modifications in its physico-chemical and sensory characteristics. The use of edible coatings is an alternative for extending the shelf life of this product. The aim of this project is to study the effect of utilization of chitosan edible coating in the physico-chemical and sensory characteristics of vacuum packaged lamb meat under different temperatures, as well as the consumers´ attitude beyond this new product. With the results of this study, it will be possible to obtain a new alternative for lamb meat packaging which can satisfy the consumers' needs. (AU)
