A note on consumer acceptability of liver from pigs fed a sugar solution immediately prior to slaughter

  • T. H. Fernandes (a1) and W. C. Smith (a1)

Abstract

In a consumer test involving 108 households, liver from pigs fed a sucrose solution in lairage overnight prior to slaughter was preferred on its appearance to that from pigs which had received water only during the resting period. Highly significant preferences were shown for fried and casseroled sugar-fed liver in relation to tenderness and juiciness but not flavour. When all eating characteristics were taken into consideration participants were equally divided in their preferences for ‘sugar-fed’ and normal liver.
