Meat products are foods that are primarily made from animal meat, either whole or processed, and can include products like beef, pork, chicken, lamb, and turkey. These products can be fresh, frozen, or canned, and can be sold raw, cooked, or ready-to-eat. Examples of meat products include ground beef, bacon, sausages, deli meats, and canned meat products like corned beef and spam.
Tapioca starch can be used in meat products as a binder or filler to improve texture, juiciness, and mouthfeel. It can also help to increase yield and reduce cooking losses by retaining moisture in the meat. In addition, tapioca starch can act as a thickener in meat sauces and gravies, improving their texture and stability. Because tapioca starch is a neutral-tasting and gluten-free ingredient, it can be used in a variety of meat products, including sausages, meatballs, and burgers, to improve their overall quality and appeal.
