Benefits of Meat Tumbling
Meat tumblers have recently gained popularity in the meat processing industry because of the many benefits processors and consumers see in the end product. Commonly known as meat tumbling, the process also goes by massage tumbling, vacuum tumbling and marinating. The goal of this process is to evenly distribute the marinade, promote salt soluble proteins to the surface and increase the water binding capacity. Once surfaced, the salt-soluble proteins can absorb water helping increase product yield. Tumbling also helps to infuse seasoning into the proteins for a more flavorful product. The mechanical force applied to move the meat can also help tenderize the product and give it a more uniform appearance.
