Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate the shelf-life and microbial community dynamics of super-chilled vacuum-packaged beef striploins imported from Australia to China after approximately five weeks of shipping time and an additional 15 weeks of storage at −1 °C ± 0.5 °C. Data analysis using a mixed model (REML) with time as the fixed effect and portion as a random effect, showed that the only beef quality trait that changed during storage was total volatile basic nitrogen (TVBN; P
