Abstract

At the present time the most common method of measuring the color of meats consist in a comparison of the surface with a Munsell Color Disc, or a Munsell Color Chart. This method is considered quite satisfactory by some authorities, but its reliability is seriously questioned by others. This paper is a continuation of the work reported at the Academy meeting a year ago. A great many more readings have been made in which cuts were used that varied quite widely in quality. Also, a comparison has been made between the various Munsell Color Charts, and between cuts of meat and the Color Charts set to match them.
