Kokumi flavour peptide production from beef offal co-products

Offals are non-meat part co-products arising from meat processing/fabrication and are generated in large quantities daily. These co-products are considered low value products and pose a challenge to the industry to divert efforts into increasing their value to add to their business profit. While many of these co-products are edible for human consumption or pet food, they are generally processed to be used as animal feed, fertilizer or fuel. However, meat co-products are an excellent source of high nutritive value protein, minerals and vitamins and hence must be better diverted to contribute to alleviating the increasing global demand for protein. Most importantly, by adding value to them we can improve meat industry sustainability and profitability.

This report investigates the suitability of beef offal co-products liver and lung to produce a kokumi flavour rich extract enriched with kokumi taste substances.
