  • Dry-cured pork neck samples were stored at $10^{\circ}C$ for 90 days under vacuum packaging (VP) or modified atmosphere packaging (MAP; 25% $CO_2$+75% $N_2$) conditions. The pH, moisture, water activity, total aerobic bacteria, and Enterobacteriaceae counts of dry-cured pork neck products with MAP were significantly lower than those with VP (p<0.05) after 90 days of storage. However, CIE $b^*$ and 2-thiobarbituric acid reacted substance (TBARS) values of the pork product with MAP were significantly higher (p<0.05) than those with VP. Total aerobic bacterial counts and Enterobacteriaceae counts of samples with MAP were lower than those with VP after 30 days of storage. Sensory results indicated that aroma, flavor and tenderness scores of the samples with both VP and MAP decreased during storage and the scores after >60 days of storage were lower than those at Day 1. In conclusion, despite presenting higher lipid oxidation, the samples stored in packages containing 25% $CO_2$ for 90 days at $10^{\circ}C$ have lower bacterial counts than vacuum-packed samples. Therefore, further studies should be performed on the packaging of dry-cured meat at adjusted concentrations of $CO_2$.

  • This study was carried out to investigate quality characteristics of dry-cured hams in the domestic market. Two kinds of dry-cured hams were processed with pork leg (T1) and pork neck (T2). Five 24-month dry-cured legs (T1, 5.3-6.1 kg) and twenty 4-month dry-cured pork necks (T2, 1.5-1.9 kg) were used in this experiment. They were stored at $4^{\circ}C$ chilling room and quality characteristics were investigated. Moisture content, water activity, cholesterol content, CIE $L^*$, VBN, total plate counts and lactic acid bacteria of T1 were significantly higher (p<0.05) than those of T2, whereas fat content, ${NO_2}^-$, CIE $a^*$, TBARS and Warner-Bratzler shear force values of T2 were significantly higher (p<0.05) than those of T1. In fatty acid compositions, palmitoleic acid and stearic acid in T2 were significantly higher (p<0.05) than T1, however, oleic and linoleic acid in T2 was significantly lower (p<0.05) than T1. In free amino acids, the total content and individual content of asparagin, leucine and phenylalanine in T1 were higher than those of T2 (p<0.05). The aroma score of T2 was higher than that of T1 in sensory evaluation (p<0.05). In conclusion, two kinds of dry-cured hams were different in their final characteristics and could enhance the consumer's appeal of pork meat in Korean market.
