This study was carried out to investigate the physicochemical and sensory properties of branded pork by feeding probiotics and crossbred between Korean native and wild pigs. Crude protein contents showed in order of Brand A>Brand B>control (P<0.05), while crude fat contents showed Brand A to be lower (P<0.05) than control and Brand B. The pH of Brand B was significantly higher (P<0.05) than control and Brand A. Cooking loss (%) showed Brand A to be lower (P<0.05) than control, but there was not different between Brand A and Brand B. Lightness value showed Brand B to be lower (P<0.05) than control and Brand A. Brand A had the highest (P<0.05) springiness value. For fatty acid profile among branded pork loins, the saturated fatty acid (SFA) content was highest (P<0.05) for Brand A, but lowest (P<0.05) for Brand B. Brand B had the highest (P<0.05) unsaturated fatty acid (USFA) and essential fatty acid (EFA), USFA : SFA ratio, EFA : SFA ratio, and EFA : USFA ratio. Essential amino acid contents of Brand B was higher (P<0.05) than control and Brand A.
