The aim of the research was to study the impact of white striping and wooden breast myopathies on the technological quality, mineral, and sensory profile of poultry meat. With this purpose, a total of 138 breasts were selected for a control group with normal breasts (N), a group of breasts characterised by white striping (WS) myopathy, and a group of breasts having both white striping and wooden breast myopathies (WSWB). Data revealed that the simultaneous presence of the two myopathies, with respect to the WS lesion individually considered, had a further detrimental effect on pH (6.04 vs. 5.96; P < 0.05), yellowness (11.4 vs. 10.3; P < 0.01), cooking losses (30.4 vs. 27.6%; P < 0.05), toughness instrumental values (22.8 vs. 20.0 N; P < 0.01), and perception (6.22 vs. 5.56; P < 0.01). In addition, mineral contents suggest that a defective ions regulation is also present in white striping and wooden breast myopathies.

Abstract

The aim of the research was to study the impact of white striping and wooden breast myopathies on the technological quality, mineral, and sensory profile of poultry meat. With this purpose, a total of 138 breasts were selected for a control group with normal breasts (N), a group of breasts characterised by white striping (WS) myopathy, and a group of breasts having both white striping and wooden breast myopathies (WSWB). Data revealed that the simultaneous presence of the two myopathies, with respect to the WS lesion individually considered, had a further detrimental effect on pH (6.04 vs. 5.96; P < 0.05), yellowness (11.4 vs. 10.3; P < 0.01), cooking losses (30.4 vs. 27.6%; P < 0.05), toughness instrumental values (22.8 vs. 20.0 N; P < 0.01), and perception (6.22 vs. 5.56; P < 0.01). In addition, mineral contents suggest that a defective ions regulation is also present in white striping and wooden breast myopathies.
