Özet

In this article, apparent specific heat capacities of meat and meat products, minced beef, hamburger patties, soudjouk, minced turkey meat, turkey sausage, and turkey soudjouk, were measured at temperatures ranging from -60 degrees C to +40 degrees C, using a differential scanning calorimeter. Experimental data were compared with values calculated from different predictive models given in the literature. Measured apparent specific heat capacities were also mathematically interpreted as a function of temperature, moisture and fat content by application of nonlinear regression analysis for frozen and unfrozen samples. The developed models were found to be in good agreement with the experimental data.
