Abstract

In recent years the number of porcine carcasses which show pale-watery muscle within 3-4 hours after slaughter has increased. Presently, this phenomenon is a serious economic problem in the pork industry. This phenomenon of pale-watery muscle may be encountered in the literature as Porcine Stress Syndrome (PSS) or Pale Soft Exudative Pork (PSEP).
