dc.description.abstractDifferences and consumer acceptability of matured salami produced from game species were evaluated. The pH of the salami differed (p<0.05) with springbok salami having the highest mean pH value. No differences (p>0.05) were observed among the species for aw, shear force, gumminess or cohesiveness. Microbiological counts of the game salami differed for coliform (p<0.05) but not for E. coli (p>0.05) counts. The most distinctive characteristics observed by the quantitative descriptive analyses were smoky, salty, pepper and salami flavour, combined with a smoky, salami aroma. Game flavour was not perceived as a strong attribute during the sensory analyses. Gemsbok salami was strongly associated with the attribute colour as described by the male and female consumer panels. The springbok salami scored the lowest for both colour and taste. Salami produced from gemsbok, kudu and zebra were superior to springbok salami. © 2010 The American Meat Science Association.
