Effect of high hydrostatic pressure on the meat of collared peccaries (Tayassu tajacu) with different ages

This study aimed to assess the effect of high hydrostatic pressure (HHP) applied in the post-rigor period, on the physical and chemical parameters of the meat (Longissimus thoracis et lumborum) of peccary (Tayassu tajacu) obtained from animals of different ages.
