Abstract

Studied was the effect of some factors on the retention of water in the slaughtered birds during their technologic processing in all poultry-dressing combines of this country. It was found that the carcass size plays an important role: the greater the weight the lower the percent of the absorbed water. On the other hand, prolonged water cooling was found to correlate positiely with the amount of retained water, while the time of dripping does not lead to essential change of this value.
