Together with the Handbook of Poultry Processing: Husbandry, Slaughter, Preservation and Safety, this title provides a comprehensive reference for the poultry industry.
This book, which brings together an editorial and author team with US and international members and a broad range of topics, includes the scientific, technical, and engineering principles of poultry processing, methods and product categories, product manufacturing, and attributes, sanitation and safety. The text also details safety requirements and regulatory enforcement in the US, EU, and Asia.
The Handbook of Poultry Science and Technology provides an up–to–date and comprehensive reference on poultry processing. Volume 1 describes husbandry, slaughter, preservation, and safety. It presents all the details professionals need to know beginning with live poultry through to the freezing of whole poultry and predetermined cut parts. Throughout, the coverage focuses on one paramount objective: an acceptable quality and a safe product for consumer purchase and use. The text includes safety requirements and regulatory enforcement in the US, the EU, and Asia.
Volume 1: Primary Processing is divided into seven parts:
• Poultry: biology to pre–mortem status — includes such topics as classification and biology, competitive exclusion, transportation to the slaughterhouse, etc.
• Slaughtering and cutting — includes the slaughterhouse building and required facilities, equipment, and operations; carcass evaluation and cutting; kosher and halal slaughter; etc.
• Preservation: refrigeration and freezing — includes the biology and physicochemistry of poultry meat in rigor mortis under ambient temperature, as well as changes that occur during freezing and thawing; engineering principles; equipment and processes; quality; refrigeration and freezing for various facilities; etc.
• Preservation: heating, drying, chemicals, and irradiation
• Composition, chemistry, and sensory attributes — includes quality characteristics, microbiology, nutritional components, chemical composition, and texture of raw poultry meat.
• Eggs — includes egg attributes, science, and technology.
• Sanitation and Safety — includes PSE, poultry–related foodborne diseases, OSHA requirements, HACCP and its application, etc.
