Jerky
JERKY is lean meat that has been trimmed of fat, cut into strips, and then dried to prevent spoilage . Normally, this drying includes the addition of salt, to prevent bacteria from developing on the meat before sufficient moisture has been removed. The word "jerky" is derived from the Quechua word ch\'arki which means "dried, salted meat". All that is needed to produce basic "jerky" is a low-temperature drying method, and salt to inhibit bacterial growth. Modern manufactured jerky is normally marinated in a seasoned spice rub or liquid, and dried, dehydrated or smoked with low heat (usually under 70 °C/160 °F). Some product manufacturers finely grind meat, mix in seasonings, and press the meat-paste into flat shapes prior to drying. The resulting jerky from the above methods would be a salty and/or savory snack. However, often a sweet or semi-sweet recipe is used, with sugar being a major ingredient (in contrast to biltong which is a dried meat product that utilizes the acid in vinegar rather than salt to inhibit bacterial growth when drying the meat). Jerky

is ready-to-eat and needs no additional preparation. It can be stored for months without refrigeration . When the protein to moisture content ratio is correct, the resulting meat is cured , or preserved. There are many products in the marketplace which are sold as jerky which consist of highly processed, chopped and formed meat, rather than traditional sliced, whole-muscle meat

Meat
MEAT is animal flesh that is eaten as food . :1 Humans have hunted and killed animals for meat since prehistoric times. The advent of civilization allowed the domestication of animals such as chickens, sheep, pigs and cattle. This eventually led to their use in meat production on an industrial scale with the aid of slaughterhouses . Meat is mainly composed of water, protein , and fat . It is edible raw, but is normally eaten after it has been cooked and seasoned or processed in a variety of ways. Unprocessed meat will spoil or rot within hours or days as a result of infection with and decomposition by bacteria and fungi . Most often, _meat_ refers to skeletal muscle and associated fat and other tissues, but it may also describe other edible tissues such as offal . :1 _Meat_ is sometimes also used in a more restrictive sense to mean the flesh of mammalian species (pigs, cattle, lambs, etc.) raised and prepared for human consumption, to the exclusion of fish , other seafood , poultry , or other animals

Drying (food)
FOOD DRYING is a method of food preservation in which food is dried (dehydrated or desiccated ). Drying inhibits the growth of bacteria , yeasts , and mold through the removal of water . Dehydration has been used widely for this purpose since ancient times; the earliest known practice is 12,000 B.C. by inhabitants of the modern Middle East and Asia regions. Water is traditionally removed through evaporation (air drying, sun drying, smoking or wind drying), although today electric food dehydrators or freeze-drying can be used to speed the drying process and ensure more consistent results. 1890 newspaper advertisement showing tin of dried coconut CONTENTS * 1 Food types * 2 Preparation * 3 Other methods * 4 See also * 5 References * 6 External links FOOD TYPES A collection of dried mushrooms Sun-drying octopus Many different foods can be prepared by dehydration.

Skeletonization * v * t * e Decomposing fallen nurse log in a forest DECOMPOSITION is the process by which organic substances are broken down into simpler matter. The process is a part of nutrient cycle and is essential for recycling the finite matter that occupies physical space in the biosphere . Bodies of living organisms begin to decompose shortly after death . Animals, such as worms, also help decompose the organic materials. Organisms that do this are known as decomposers . Although no two organisms decompose in the same way, they all undergo the same sequential stages of decomposition. The science which studies decomposition is generally referred to as _taphonomy _ from the Greek word _taphos_, meaning tomb. One can differentiate ABIOTIC from BIOTIC DECOMPOSITION (biodegradation ). The former means "degradation of a substance by chemical or physical processes, e.g., hydrolysis . The latter means "the metabolic breakdown of materials into simpler components by living organisms", typically by microorganisms

Ch'arki
CH\'ARKI (Quechua for dried, salted meat, Hispanicized spellings charque, charqui, charquí) is dried and salted meat common in South America , originally llama , nowadays mostly horse and beef . Llama is still widely used in Bolivia. This was a very popular way to preserve meat in Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador, Peru, Uruguay and Brazil. It was industrialized in charqueadas, also named saladeros (in Argentina and Uruguay). In the United States ch'arki was Anglicised as jerky. When encountered by the Spanish , the Inca Empire

Marinated
MARINATION is the process of soaking foods in a seasoned , often acidic, liquid before cooking. The origin of the word alludes to the use of brine (aqua marina) in the pickling process, which led to the technique of adding flavor by immersion in liquid. The liquid in question, the 'marinade', can be either acidic (made with ingredients such as vinegar , lemon juice, or wine ) or enzymatic (made with ingredients such as pineapple , papaya or ginger ). In addition to these ingredients, a marinade often contains oils, herbs , and spices to further flavor the food items. It is commonly used to flavor foods and to tenderize tougher cuts of meat . The process may last seconds or days. Different marinades are used in different cuisines. For example, in Indian cuisine
Indian cuisine
the marinade is usually prepared with a mixture of spices. CONTENTS * 1 Tissue breakdown * 2 Marinating safety * 3 See also * 4 References TISSUE BREAKDOWN Beef marinating for a Korean barbecue dish In meats, the acid causes the tissue to break down, which allows more moisture to be absorbed and results in a juicier end product; however, too much acid can be detrimental to the end product. A good marinade has a balance of acid, oil, and spice. If raw marinated meat is frozen, the marinade can break down the surface and turn the outer layer mushy. Often confused with marinating, macerating is a similar form of food preparation

Spice Rub
SPICE RUB is any mixture of ground spices that is made for the purpose of being rubbed on raw food before the food is cooked. The spice rub forms a coat on the food. The food can be marinated in the spice rub for some time for the flavors to incorporate into the food or it can be cooked immediately after it is coated in the rub. The spice rub can be left on or partially removed before cooking. CONTENTS * 1 Ingredients * 2 Foods * 3 Cooking methods * 4 See also * 5 References * 6 External links INGREDIENTSThe spices are usually coarsely ground. In addition to spices, salt and sugar may be added to the rub, the salt for flavor and the sugar for caramelization . The simplest rub is just coarsely ground black pepper as in steak au poivre . Spice rubs can also have ingredients such as herbs, crushed garlic or oil added to make a paste. Less common ingredients can include coffee beans . FOODS Spice rubs are mainly used for preparing meats and fish . There are many different recipes for rubs and most of them are targeted towards a specific kind of food. The exact combination of spices that makes a good rub for a particular kind of food varies from region to region and culture to culture. COOKING METHODSCooking with rubs is almost always done using the dry heat method of cooking where almost no water based liquid is used in cooking. The most popular cooking method for food prepared using a spice rub is grilling

preservation as a survival technique dates back to ancient times. Indigenous peoples of Southern Africa , such as the Khoikhoi, preserved meat by slicing it into strips, curing it with salt, and hanging it up to dry. European seafarers preserved meat for their long journeys by curing meat in salt or brine. European settlers (Dutch, German, French) who arrived in southern Africa in the early 17th century used vinegar in the curing process, as well as saltpetre (potassium nitrate)

Refrigeration
REFRIGERATION is a process of removing heat from low temperature reservoir and transferring it to high temperature reservoir. The work of heat transfer is traditionally driven by mechanical work , but can also be driven by heat, magnetism , electricity , laser , or other means. Refrigeration has many applications, including, but not limited to: household refrigerators , industrial freezers , cryogenics , and air conditioning . Heat pumps may use the heat output of the refrigeration process, and also may be designed to be reversible, but are otherwise similar to air conditioning units. Refrigeration has had a large impact on industry, lifestyle, agriculture and settlement patterns. The idea of preserving food dates back to at least the ancient Roman and Chinese empires. However, mechanical refrigeration technology has rapidly evolved in the last century, from ice harvesting to temperature-controlled rail cars. The introduction of refrigerated rail cars contributed to the westward expansion of the United States, allowing settlement in areas that were not on main transport channels such as rivers, harbors, or valley trails. Settlements were also developing in infertile parts of the country, filled with newly discovered natural resources

Curing (food Preservation)
CURING is any of various food preservation and flavoring processes of foods such as meat , fish and vegetables , by the addition of combinations of salt , nitrates , nitrites , or sugar , with the aim of drawing moisture out of the food by the process of osmosis . Many curing processes also involve smoking , spicing, or cooking . Dehydration was the earliest form of food curing. Because curing increases the solute concentration in the food and hence decreases its water potential , the food becomes inhospitable for the microbe growth that causes food spoilage. Curing can be traced back to antiquity, and was the primary way of preserving meat and fish until the late 19th century. Nitrates and nitrites, in conjunction with salt, are one of the most common agents in curing meat because they further inhibit the growth of Clostridium botulinum

. They also contribute to the characteristic pink color. Slices of beef in a can. MEAT PRESERVATION in general (of meat from livestock , game , and poultry ) is the set of all treatment processes for preserving the properties, taste, texture, and color of raw, partially cooked, or cooked meats while keeping them edible and safe to consume. Curing has been the dominant method of meat preservation for thousands of years, although modern developments like refrigeration and synthetic preservatives are now beginning to complement and supplant it

Water Activity
WATER ACTIVITY or aw is the partial vapor pressure of water in a substance divided by the standard state partial vapor pressure of water. In the field of food science , the standard state is most often defined as the partial vapor pressure of pure water at the same temperature . Using this particular definition, pure distilled water has a water activity of exactly one. As temperature increases, aw typically increases, except in some products with crystalline salt or sugar . Higher aw substances tend to support more microorganisms . Bacteria usually require at least 0.91, and fungi at least 0.7. See also fermentation . Water migrates from areas of high aw to areas of low aw. For example, if honey (aw ≈ 0.6) is exposed to humid air (aw ≈ 0.7), the honey absorbs water from the air . If salami (aw ≈ 0.87) is exposed to dry air (aw ≈ 0.5), the salami dries out , which could preserve it or spoil it
