Abstract

Hereford x Angus carcasses were infused with a solution of either sugar/phosphate or calcium chloride immediately after exsanguination to determine effects on color stability during retail display. A calcium chloride solution darkened the cuts and reduced color stability. A sugar/phosphate blend made steaks appear lighter red (more desirable), and their color stability was equal to that of the noninfused control.
