Abstract

Hams were collected from conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) fed market barrows from 40 kg to 115 kg of body weight. No treatment differences were observed in a sensory panel (texture, flavor, saltiness, and overall acceptability), objective (Hunter) color scores, and tenderness for the Star Probe and Warner Bratzler Shears (WBS). Supplementation of CLA in swine finishing diets does not compromise processed ham-quality characteristics.
