QBind Pork OP80 is a high functional porcine protein, with excellent emulsifying properties, and a strong gel forming capacity after heating and cooling. QBind Pork OP80 is low on hydroxyproline, similar to the content of meat. QBind Pork OP80 is the preferred solution for the meat industry to improve overall product quality and to improve yield of meat products. In particular cooked sausages.
QBind Pork OP80 is perfectly suitable for cooked sausages to improve product quality and yield.
Due to the strong gel forming capacity and good emulsifying properties of QBind Pork OP80, it provides excellent water binding of the meat matrix in cooked sausages. This results in a firmer texture and has a positive effect on the slice ability of the product. (Left figure)
QBind Pork OP80 provides stabilization of the water/protein/fat matrix. It reduces the risk that jelly and fat separation occur during cooking and therefore leads to less dripping/cooking loss and a higher yield. (Figure middle left)
A sausage with QBind Pork OP80 has a high quality in terms of texture. Competitor Y texture remains stable from 1%. QBind Pork OP80 texture increase further at 1.5%. (Figure middle right)
QBind Pork OP80 compensated the drip loss more compared to the competitors.The drip loss improvement of QBind Pork OP80 is already visible at lower concentration compare to competitor Y. 0.5% QBind Pork OP80 addition gives already a significant reduction in drip loss. (Right figure)
QBind Pork OP80 results in very stable product characteristics. It is able to buffer variable qualities of raw materials, eliminating the risk of jelly and fat separation as result of Fluctiation in raw material quality. It therefore ensures constant quality of the cooked sausage even better than other proteins on the market. This is particular visible when varying QBind Pork OP80 concentrations compared to competitor Y.
