Using NMR to Forecast the Aptness for Freezing of Pork
NMR was used to investigate the chemical shift graphs of fresh pork at different time postmortem, and at the same time the ice crystals of meat freezing at different time postmortem were researched with SEM. The results showed there were significant (P＜0.05）correlation between distribution and size of ice crytals freezing at different time postmortem and the chemical shift graphs of fresh pork at different time postmortem different. Using chemical shift graphs of meat could forecast whether the meat was suitable for frozen processing, and also could forecast the water holding capacity of it.
