Will be used Pectoralis major samples from birds with different, reared and slaughtered in south and southeastern Brazil. Will be used Pectoralis major samples from broilers affected by white striping in different severity degrees. Will be evaluated color, pH, water holding capacity, cooking weight loss, shear force, collagen, sarcomere length, chemical composition and cholesterol concentration. (AU)
