    Connective tissue, from the outside of three major chuck muscles, was evaluated for binding properties when incorporated either raw or following preheating into precooked, restructured beef. Food-grade gelatin was ...
  • Kenney, P.B.; Kropf, Donald H.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    Five percent fish surimi, unwashed or washed ground beef, and washed or unwashed beef hearts were evaluated in precooked, chunked and formed, restructured beef roasts to determine if they would increase bind in ...
  • Hutchinson, Stacy L.; Daniel, M.J.; Higgins, James J.; Unruh, John A.; Hunt, Melvin C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2008)
    Cow meat is tougher than meat from young steers and heifers and typically has a less desirable, darker color. It is generally assumed that cow meat will need to be ground or have some form of post-mortem tenderization ...
  • Warren, K.E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Marksberry, C.L.; Sorheim, O.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    Modified atmosphere packaging with 100% carbon dioxide was used to investigate changes in daily gas composition, as well as the influence of fat trim level and location of loin in the box on shelf life characteristics. ...
  • Haub, Mark D.; Simons, Tammy R.; Cook, Chad M.; Remig, Valentina M.; Al-Tamimi, Enas K.; Holcomb, Carol Ann (2005)
    Background: We investigated the effects of a calcium-fortified beverage supplemented over 12 months on body composition in postmenopausal women (n = 37, age = 48–75 y). Methods: Body composition (total-body percent fat, ...
  • Carmack, C.F.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H.; Schwenke, J.R.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Natural flavorings were evaluated for use in low-fat ground beef, which frequently lacks flavor intensity. Three lean sources, A-maturity (young), E-maturity (mature cow), and imported (cow) beef round muscles, were used ...
  • ckastner; lerick; jkastner; anutsch; phebus (National Agricultural Biosecurity Center, Kansas State University, 2004)
    Whether at the hand of accidental disease entry, the weather, or an act of bioterrorism, widespread livestock deaths pose daunting carcass-disposal challenges that, if not met quickly and effectively, can spiral into major ...
  • Taylor, Ethel; Kastner, Justin; Renter, David G. (2010)
    A 2008 multistate foodborne outbreak of Salmonella Saintpaul caused more than 1,400 illnesses in the United States (U.S.). Although initial investigations suggested tomatoes as the potential vehicle, jalapeño and serrano ...
  • Herald, T. J.; Schmidt, Karen A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    The change in textural quality of cheese during frozen storage is of concern to the frozen food industry. Many food products such as frozen pizza and dinner entrees are stored at !0.5EF or below for extended periods ...
  • Allen, Dell M.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H.; Gutowski, G.; Harrison, A.; Smith, M.E.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Thirty-eight crossbred steers of known background were randomly assigned to four feeding regimes. All initially were fed on a brome and bluestem pasture supplemented during winter with alfalfa and protein. Ten grass-fed ...
  • Kastner, Curtis L.; Choi, Y.I.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Five pork carcasses were used to determine the effects of hot boning and various combinations of salt (0, 1.5, or 3.0%) and a phosphate mixture (0 or 0.5%) on functional, processing, and storage characteristics of preblended ...
  • Kastner, Curtis L.; Henrickson, R.L.; Morrison, R.D. (American Society of Animal Science, 1973)
    Six Hereford steer carcasses were assigned tDto each of three holding periods (either 2-, 5- or 8-hr. postmortem). Each carcass was split and one side was "hot" boned into muscles and muscle systems after being held ...
  • Kastner, Curtis L.; Choi, Y.I.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Five pork carcasses were used to determine the effects of hot boning and various combinations of salt (0, 1.5, or 3.0%) and a phosphate mixture (0 or 0.5%) on bacteria, TBA (measure of fat rancidity), and pH values of ...
