  • Bala, Soumya; Schmidt, Karen A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013)
    Within cells, cysteine can be synthesized from methionine by the enzyme γ-cystathionase. Cysteine is then utilized to synthesize glutathione, which has many functions in cells that contribute to good health. Certain ...
  • Luchsinger, S.E.; Garcia Zepeda, C.M.; Chambers, Edgar, IV; Hollingsworth, M.E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Marsden, James L.; Stroda, Sally L.; Rubio Canas, E.J.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Kuecker, W.G.; Mata, T.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Acceptance of irradiated, chilled, boneless, pork chops and nonirradiated controls by consumers was not different. Coupled with consumer concerns about food safety and well-documented improvement in consumer attitudes about ...
  • Waldner, D.N.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Stroda, Sally L.; Campbell, R.E.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    Consumers evaluated hams from the four minimum protein-fat-free categories labeled 1) ham (H), 2) ham with natural juices (HNJ), 3) ham-water added (HWA) and 4) ham and water product (HWP) for juiciness, flavor, and overall ...
  • Legako, J. F.; Brooks, J. C.; O'Quinn, Travis G.; Hagan, T. D. J.; Polkinghorne, R.; Farmer, L. J.; Miller, M. F. (2015)
    Proximate data, consumer palatability scores and volatile compounds were investigated for four beef muscles (Longissimus lumborum, Psoas major, Semimembranosus and Gluteus medius) and five USDA quality grades (Prime, Upper ...
  • Pelton, C.D.; Allen, Dell M.; Corah, L.R.; Milliken, George A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Our research showed that implanting bulls from birth to slaughter made steaks from bulls as acceptable as steers to consumer panels. Implanting bulls from weaning to slaughter resulted in the least desirable consumer panel ...
  • Schroeder, Ted C.; Tonsor, Glynn T.; Mintert, James; Pennings, Joost M.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    Recent concerns about food safety have been the most disruptive and costly events the Canadian beef industry has ever experienced. At best, food safety scares reduce consumer confidence in beef products. At worst, ...
  • Lim, Wansang; Miller, Rebecca; Park, Jung-Eun K.; Park, Sunghun (2014)
    Tomatoes have ameliorative effects on cardiovascular disease and cancer (Agarwal and Rao 2000; Rao 2002). In this study, metabolic engineering of flavonoids was utilized to improve the nutritional value of tomatoes by ...
  • Tonsor, Glynn T.; Schroeder, Ted. C.; Lusk, Jayson L. (2013)
    Results from a split-sample survey of the U.S. population reveal consumers prefer meat products carrying origin information to unlabeled alternatives. Consumers are largely unaware of origin labeling laws and are indifferent ...
  • Feldkamp, T.; Lusk, J.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    Determining needs and wants of consumers is important for the beef industry to reverse the downward trend in beef demand during the last two decades. This study used experimental auctions in conjunction with a survey ...
  • Melton, N. T.; Oleen, Brandon E.; Vahl, Christopher I.; Montgomery, Sean P.; Schlegel, Ethan R.; Blasi, Dale A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2014)
    Optimizing cattle performance and maintaining pasture health are important considerations when striving to maximize profitability and sustainability on a Flint Hills pasture yearling grazing operation. The two growing ...
  • Schmidt, C.; Smith, J.F.; Harner, Joseph P.; Brouk, Michael J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    Consumptive water usage by evaporative pads was measured during 7 days of a 3-week period at a Kansas (KS) dairy and a 2-day pe-riod at a North Dakota (ND) dairy. Water me-ters were installed between the water hydrants, ...
  • Bowles, J.E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kendall, J.L.A.; Lyon, M.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    Short bursts of electricity (intermittent electrical stimulation) to beef carcasses accelerated pH decline and the onset of rigor mortis more than continuous stimulation did.
  • Vanzant, E.S.; Cochran, R.C.; Stafford, S.; St Jean, G.; Olson, K. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Ruminal degradation of organic matter and protein in alfalfa and prairie hay were evaluated in vivo, using cannulated cows, and in vitro, using a continuous-culture fermenter to simulate ruminal fermentation. Estimates of ...
  • Karr, K.J.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Marsden, James L.; Phebus, Randall K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Lebanon bologna raw batter was mixed with a five-strain mixture of Escherichia coli O157:H7 to achieve average inoculum levels of 7.79, 7.77, and 7.92 log CFU/g as deter mined on MSA, 202, and PRSA media, respectively. ...
  • Parks, J.C.; Lusby, K.S.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1971)
    Since the requirement of animals for net energy for maintenance (NEm) is influenced largely by weight of the animal, feed efficiency and animal performance improve rapidly as feed intake surpasses maintenance requirements. ...
  • Singh, M.; Thippareddi, H.; Phebus, Randall K.; Marsden, James L.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    Cetyl Pyridinium Chloride (CPC) spray using variable application temperatures, pressures, and times was evaluated for its effectiveness in reducing Listeria monocytogenes inoculated on the surfaces of commercial frankfurters ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Lucy, M.C.; Call, Edward P. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1985)
