About the thesis
The overall aim of the project was to investigate the satiety-enhancing properties and the sensory quality of fiber-rich meat products. Also, the aim was to investigate if long-time cooking of pork at low temperatures increases protein digestibility and enhances satiety. The PhD thesis is based on three human meal test studies and one analytical study related to the characteristics of fiber meat products.
The project was a collaboration between Department of Nutrition, Exercise and Sports, University of Copenhagen and Danish Meat Research Institute, Danish Technological Institute and provides a scientific basis for product development in the meat industry.
