Abstract


The effect of electrical stimulation on changes in NPN content of beef stored at ambient and refrigeration temperatures was studied. The NPN content increased both in C and ES samples on storage probably due to the enhanced proteolysis. NPN values were higher for ES samples at every point of observation compared to the corresponding C samples
