Paper Abstract

During last years the consumption of meat has increased throughout the world. There is a demand from meat industry to invent nondestructive and rapid methods for meat quality assessment. Besides such well-known ways of meat ageing investigation like mechanical or chemical measurements, electrical and optical methods can be also used for this purpose. These methods are nondestructive, inexpensive, optical methods are noninvasive. Electric impedance during meat storage can be affected by various processes: microbial growth, changing of ions mobility, structural changes. Impedance of biological tissues is frequency dependent. Imaging of a tissue by optical methods is complicated due to the random multiple scattering of light which originates from its inhomogeneities. Changes of electric impedance and polarization during pork chop ageing are described.
