Binding properties and shelf-life characteristics of solid-muscle structured beef produced with algin/calcium/adipic acid binding gel were evaluated. Juncture binding strength and surface discoloration were not affected by refrigerated storage of meat blocks up to 35 days. Fresh steakettes had stronger muscle junctures than frozen steakettes in both raw and cooked forms. Rancidity development was greatest in steakettes stored in oxygen permeable packages. Results indicated structured meat products bound with algin/calcium/adipic acid gel maintained integrity following extended refrigerated and/or frozen storage.
