Influence of nutrition of pigs with legume-enriched mixtures on the quality of pork
Summary.

Background. More restrictive requirements concerning food production safety will bring about the process of withdrawing GM plants, including soya, from animal feed mixtures starting in 2017. At present, imported extracted soya meal is the base to make complete-portion mixtures used in pig feed. The soybean meal will have to be replaced by legumes produced in Poland. The aim of the research was a comparison of meat quality coming from pigs fed on complete-portion mixtures on the base of soya meal and complete-portion mixtures with an addition of pea and with an addition of lupine.

Material and methods. Meat of 32 crossbred fatteners (plw × pl) was tested. Half of them were fed a soya-share diet (K) and the other (D) a 20–38.5% pea and lupine share diet. In the longissimus lumborum muscle the pH45 and pH48h values and basic chemical composition were determ­ined, as well as technological properties of the meat. The colour of the meat was also analysed with Minolta CR 310 apparatus, as well as sensorially, while its marbling and firmness were tested only sensorially.

Results. The assessed meat from both groups, i.e. control (K) and experimental (D), displayed good technological and sensorial properties and colour parameters. Moreover, the meat was tender with a beneficial protein and intramuscular fat content.

Conclusion. No negative influence on obtaining good quality meat without any significant differentiation in its parameters was observed from substituting soybean meal for legume seeds in feed mixture.
