Abstract


The present study was designed to evaluate the effect of electrical stimulation on TVC of beef samples stored at ambient and refrigeration temperatures at different intervals. Significant lower counts were obtained in ES samples at 8 and 12 h at ambient temperature and 12 h under refrigeration. But this difference was not  significant immediately after electrical stimulation and at 8 and 24 h of storage tinder refrigeration
