  • Patent number: 5731029
    Abstract: Jerky products having a high proportion of meat are produced on a mass production basis. Meat which is at least substantially frozen is comminuted and then heated to a temperature of least about 140.degree. F. to at least partially denature protein of the meat. The cooked meat is then cooled to a temperature sufficiently low to solidify the fat which melted during the cooking step. A binding agent, most preferably a cold water soluble starch and guar gum, is admixed with the cooked meat to compensate for the loss of binding power resulting from denaturing of the protein during the cooking step. Mixing of the binding agent with the cooled, cooked meat and other ingredients such as seasonings and fillers is conducted to obtain a machinable meat-based dough.
