Summary and Implications

A comparison of irradiation effects on the quality of injected and uninjected pork loins was conducted. Irradiation treatments resulted in greater lipid oxidation and production of volatile compounds.However, injection treatments did not alter any of the effects of irradiation on the quality parameters measured.
