A study to evaluate quality attributes in muscles Semimembranosus (SM) and Semitendinosus (ST) muscles was performed on 10 entire donkey foals slaughtered at 10 months of age and mean final body weight of 126 kg. Fat content was significantly (P<0.05) higher (1.77 %) in SM muscle compared to ST (1.61 %); protein, cholesterol and glycogen content were not statistically different between the two muscles examined. Collagen concentration in ST muscle (44.2 microgram/mg) was significantly higher (P<0.01) compared to SM muscle (32.1 microgram/mg). Polyunsaturated fatty acids were significantly higher (P<0.05) in SM muscle (22.11 %) compared to ST muscle (20.61%).

Abstract

A study to evaluate quality attributes in muscles Semimembranosus (SM) and Semitendinosus (ST) muscles was performed on 10 entire donkey foals slaughtered at 10 months of age and mean final body weight of 126 kg. Fat content was significantly (P<0.05) higher (1.77 %) in SM muscle compared to ST (1.61 %); protein, cholesterol and glycogen content were not statistically different between the two muscles examined. Collagen concentration in ST muscle (44.2 microgram/mg) was significantly higher (P<0.01) compared to SM muscle (32.1 microgram/mg). Polyunsaturated fatty acids were significantly higher (P<0.05) in SM muscle (22.11 %) compared to ST muscle (20.61%).
