Ground pork containing 0, 1, 2, or 3% rice bran fiber was prepared. pH increased as the amount of rice bran fiber added increased (p<0.05) but decreased during storage. The lightness and redness values of the raw ground pork decreased with the addition of rice bran fiber, and ground pork containing 3% rice bran fiber had the highest yellowness value during early storage (p<0.05). Moreover, adding rice bran fiber was not associated with color stability during storage. Samples containing 2 or 3% rice bran fiber had improved cooking loss, hardness, gumminess, and chewiness. Furthermore, rice bran fiber enhanced tenderness, juiciness, and overall acceptability on a sensory evaluation. These physico-chemical properties were maintained to the final storage period. The best results were obtained with ground pork containing 2 or 3% rice bran fiber. Rice bran fiber combined with useful antioxidants may be a more effective approach to increase the stability of ground pork during cold storage.
