minced rabbit meat, plant raw materials, lactulose, semi-finished product, functional-technological properties


The topical challenge of our era is the development of such compositions of innovative polyfunctional products, which take into account, to the maximum degree, the effect of mutual enrichment of animal and vegetable products, physiological substances, the capacity of dietary fibers to remove harmful substances from the body and the capacity of probiotics to maintain micro-ecological balance in the gastro-intestinal tract. One of the priority areas of the implementation of these issues the development of technologies of rabbit meat products fortified with plant raw materials and prebiotic ingredients. The purpose of the work is to study the impact of vegetable supplements and lactulose on the quality of the minced meat products. When performing this work, there were used the modern, standard, commonly accepted methods of research, which are in compliance with solving the set objectives. Statistical processing of the results obtained and the evaluation of the reliability of data were carried out by the mathematical statistics methods using the IBM SPSS Statistics for Windows. There have been studied the chemical compositions of the brush rabbit meat bred in Georgia, as well as of haricot bean, pea and amaranth. It is reasonable to use the above-mentioned plant raw material and lactulose use as bioactive supplemented in the production of animal products. There has been justified the appropriateness of mentioned plant raw materials and lactulose as the bio-correcting supplements in the technology for producing animal food products. In order to control and identify the functionality of products, there have been identified the critical control points, such as: preparing and dosing functional raw materials, the introduction stages and an equal distribution of formula components. There have been established the hydration conditions and modes of haricot bean, pea and amaranth flours. There are shown the advantages of their hydration in mineral water, the optimal irrigation modulus has been determined. Also, there have been determined the maximum permissible levels of vegetable supplements and lactulose to be added into the minced rabbit meat, which have a positive impact on the functional-technological properties of semi-finished and finished products, in particular, improve the water binding and water holding capacities of the minced meat, increase the yield of product, as well as improve organoleptic indices of its quality, in comparison with a reference sample. Based on the study of the microbiological characteristics of developed products, it has been demonstrated that the number of mesophilic-aerobic and facultative-anaerobic microorganisms does not exceed the sanitary norms and standards, no E. coli group bacteria and pathogenic microorganisms were detected, including Salmonella that is in line with the microbiological safety hygienic requirements and norms. The obtained data set indicates the appropriateness of using a new type of product in a functional, dietetic and preventive nutrition.
