Quality Assessment Of Meat Patties Cooked By Commercial Preparation Methods, Chill Stored, And Microwave Reheated, Anne Looney Cook

Doctoral Dissertations

Food quality assessments based on yield, cooking losses, and palatability factors were applied to a model food cooked by commercial preparation methods in a simulated chill/serve food service system. Frozen, soy-extended meat patties of a standard formulation represented a common food material flowing through a food service system. Batch sizes of 24 patties were prepared by (1) grilling, (2) baking by natural convection, and (3) baking by forced-air convection. Refrigerating of bulk packed samples and microwave reheating of plated samples concluded the input effects.

Cooked, whole meat patties were portioned with a specially designed cutting tool and recombined into ...
