ABSTRACT Dados sobre composição de alimentos são importantes para inúmeras atividades, porém são escassos ou inexistentes em nosso país. O presente trabalho teve como objetivo determinar o valor calórico dos alimentos de origem animal comumente usados na dieta: carne, leite e ovos a fim de compará-los com os dados das tabelas de composição centesimal mais utilizadas por profissionais da área. Observou-se que de um modo geral, ocorrem variações entre os valores das tabelas consultadas e os analisados, sendo estes menores para ovos, seguidos de laticínios, carnes suínas, carnes bovinas e aves. Salientamos portanto, a importãncia de obtenção dados sobre a composição de alimentos condizentes com diferenças regionais do Brasil, visto que a maioria das tabelas disponíveis são compilações de dados internacionais.

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this study was to determine the quality of raw chicken breast store at 5C and packaged under different modified atmospheres. The samples of raw chicken breast (20 samples per treatment) were individually wrapped and packed in high‐density plastic bags. Before sealing, the air was removed automatically by an air removal system (vacuum) and then injected into different mixtures of purified natural gas. Physicochemical analysis of texture, pH, thiobarbituric acid (TBA), total volatile bases (TVB), color and microbiological analyses (mesophilic aerobic, Staphylococcus, psychrotrophic, Salmonella and Escherichia coli) were carried out. The cutting strengths and TBA of the control sample after 9 days of storage were 0.94 kgf and 0.601, respectively, there was lower browning, variation in pH, TBA and nitrogen TVB, and a lower growth of psychrotrophic, mesophilic and Staphylococcus was shown; the absence of Salmonella and Escherichia coli is noted. It can be concluded that the best treatment is C after 9 days of storage obtaining a longer shelf life of the chicken breast meat. PRACTICAL APPLICATIONSThe deterioration of foods caused by internal and external factors are responsible for considerable economic loss. Chicken breast meat is easily perishable by microorganisms depending on conditions of supply and production chain. An alternative to try to minimize the losses and increase the shelf life of this product is the use of modified atmospheres. The use of modified atmospheres in this study was effective to retard spoilage and reduce the volatile compounds in chicken breast meat, thus increasing food security without bringing risk to public health.

    ABSTRACT: Eighty six young bulls were used, divided into four genetic groups: Nellore (n=20), Canchim (n=17), ½ Canchim ×Nellore (NC) (n=25) and ¾ Canchim ×Nellore (TQ) (n=24). The animals were weighed every 28 days to evaluate the average daily gain (kg/day), dry matter intake (kg/day) and feed conversion. When the animals reached slaughter weight (450 kg) and fat thickness greater than 4 mm, were slaughtered to evaluate the rib eye area (cm2), subcutaneous fat thickness (mm), marbling, shear force, ether extract (%) and total cooking losses. The Nellore group fitted correctly into the proposed system, showing similar performance when compared to the CN group (1.18 and 1.29 kg/day for Nellore and CN, respectively) and feed conversion (6.90 and 7.04 for Nellore and CN, respectively). The dry matter intake (kg/day) differed among all groups (11.82, 9.39, 8.90 and 8.31 for Canchim, TQ, CN and Nellore, respectively). The carcass weight (kg) was higher in the Canchim group (291.14) than the other groups (250.74, 246.64 and 244.18 for TQ, CN and Nellore respectively). Although the carcass dressing percentage of the Nellore group (58.75%) was the highest, this group had the lowest yield of commercial cuts in the hindquarter especially for the sirloin (10.22, 11.55, 11.64 and 11.18% for Nellore, Canchim, TQ and CN, respectively). The shear force values indicated that the slaughter of young animals can assure tender beef regardless of the genetic group.
