Chicken rolls were manufactured using ground dark fowl meat or mechanically deboned poultry meat as a binding substrate, sodium caseinate or soya isolate and a meat block that was mechanically tenderized or chunked. Effects of these treatments on yield, chemical composition, sensory and texture profile attributes were evaluated in this study. Inclusion of soya isolate increased the cook yield and improved color over sodium caseinate (P 〈 0.05). Likewise, rolls containing ground-dark fowl meat were lighter in color than those made with mechanically deboned poultry meat. Rolls made with mechanically deboned poultry meat had greater chewiness, while those made with sodium caseinate had greater cohesiveness. Texture profile analysis indicated that mechanical tenderization was the predominant factor in producing a softer and more springy chicken roll. Sensory evaluation revealed that mechanical tenderization decreased chewiness as compared to cubing (P 〈 0.05).
