Technical feasibility

SECTION I: Testing

 

1

Has the R & D result been tested?

YES

Yes The research has been tested in laboratory scale

NO

 

 

The following question is replied according to the reply in question 1

 

If yes

 

1a

In what mode has the result been tested?

•             Prototype

•             Pilot Application

•             Alpha/BETA testing

 

The project will evaluate the quality profile of “arrosticini” (chemical composition, lipids content, fatty acids profile) highlighting possible differences due to finishing (in stable during winter and grazing during spring and autumn), related to product shelf-life. In addition, by means of in vitro and in vivo experiments, mixtures of essential oils with antioxidant and antimicrobial activities will be used to extend the shelf-life of sheep arrosticini, packed in modified atmosphere and refrigerated.

 

 

1b. Please describe and discuss the testing results
The improvement of the specific knowledge concerning meat quality of adult ovine normally used to prepare “arrosticini” in the Province of Teramo and the development of  new technologies to improve the product shelf-life, security and quality will be performed.

 

 

If no:

 

1c

Describe what type of testing does the R&D result need?
Detailed comment

 

 

 

1d. What is the time needed for testing?
 
1e. What is the cost needed for testing?
 

 

 

SECTION 2: Current Stage of Development

 

2a

To what extent does the development team have technical resources for supporting the production of a new product? (Researchers, human resources, hardware, etc. )
The research project involves a synergic contribution of zootechnical, microbiological and technological skills.

 

 

2b

What are the technical issues that need to be tackled for full deployment, if needed?
 

For this project there is a collaboration between managers of companies and University so is possible work well. So there are not issues

 

2c

What additional technical resources are needed for the production of this new product?
In order to optimize the search is useful presentation of the preliminary scientific results at national and international conferences

 

2d

Overall assessment of the current stage of technical development.
Actually, research is giving interest results

 

 

 

 

SECTION 3: Deployment

3a

Define the demands for large scale production in terms of
  • Materials
Microbiological and chemical products

 

 

 

  • technologies, tools, machineries
The project will evaluate the quality profile of “arrosticini” (chemical composition, lipids content, fatty acids profile) highlighting possible differences due to finishing (in stable during winter and grazing during spring and autumn), related to product shelf-life. In addition, by means of in vitro and in vivo experiments, mixtures of essential oils with antioxidant and antimicrobial activities will be used to extend the shelf-life of sheep arrosticini, packed in modified atmosphere and refrigerated. Although plant extracts are commonly used in processed meats with a protective function against oxidative damage, to achieve stability and improve microbiological safety

 

 

 

  • Staff effort
This research may be supported by major farmers

 

 

 

SECTION 4: Overall Assessment

 

1

What is you overall assessment of the technical feasibility of the research result?
The research project involves a synergic contribution of zootechnical, microbiological and technological skills.
