Frozen Meat Patties, Nuggets and Other Plant-based Analogues

Can your factory frozen meat patty make it?

“they just taste nicer normally, homemade patties done in your own kitchen.

Food technologists and meat producers have all along battled with challenges in maintaining meat batter product texture and color during storage and large temperature fluctuations. This is due to rapid oxidation of the lipid and protein content.

Why are some meats so fragrant?

Preventing oil separation in liver pastes and bolognas will help you lock the fragrance in!

For plant-based meat alternatives, protein and oil oxidation are similar. In addition to that, the differences in meat muscle lengthy structure of meat versus rigid crisp cell walls of plant fibers, also present additional challenge for texture simulation.

Emulsifiers are used in meat batters, sausages, burger patties and frozen meats to stabilize emulsions formed amongst protein, fats, water and other ingredients.

What happens when minced meat patties are prepared without emulsifiers and texturizers?

Meat prepared without emulsifiers is softer in texture due to insufficient binding and by varying the amounts of emulsifier used, the hardness or chewiness texture can be modified accordingly. (Fidel, 2010).

Fat globules are not as well dispersed and oil-in-water emulsions are unstable, affecting the cooked taste and texture profile.

Pre-cooked meat use emulsifiers of sucrose esters, items like meat patties, sausages benefit from the enhanced binding effects and stable micro oil in water droplets which will help to maintain mouthfeel and texture. (EFEMA, 2015).

Texturizers in the form of transglutaminase enzymes, also known as meat glue, are often used in food processing to bind different pieces of meat together into a single larger piece.

Without the use of transglutaminase enzymes, meat may not have the same uniform appearance or texture as it would if it were bound together using this method. Additionally, without the use of meat glue, it may be more difficult to create complex, layered dishes that require multiple types of meat to be combined.
