Chicken - natural goodness

New EU hygiene regulations now require all food businesses to implement a documented safety management system based on Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) principles.

HACCP is a tool to assess hazards and establish control systems that focus on prevention rather than relying mainly on end-product testing. It is an internationally accepted systematic method of identifying specific hazards in plants and measures for their control to ensure the safety of food.

Baader-Johnson, with corporate offices and a manufacturing facility in Kansas City, is a leading designer, manufacturer and distributor of Baader-Johnson poultry processing equipment worldwide. They are a subsidiary of Lubeck, based Nordischer Maschinenbau Rud.Baader GmbH & Co. KG .

For example the BA655 Front Half Poultry Filleting MachineThe BA655 is a fully automatic breast filleting machine that produces ....

• High yield single or whole fillets
• Reduced labor compared to traditional methods
• Computer controlled deboning allows for maximum performance on an increased
size range
• Yield is maximized through computer controlled cutting of each front half
• Quick conversion from single fillets to butterly breast
• Increased throughput at 41 front halves per minute

At the International Poultry Expo in Atlanta last month Baader-Johnson introduced the BAADER 886 InspeXtor , which is an inline hybrid x-ray and colour vision system that gives processors a second pair of eyes allowing early defect detection.

Maintaining processing speed while ensuring all bones and defects are removed prior to upstream processing is a problem due to variations of meat thickness in chickens.

The new system, detects bones missed during the deboning process and other defects in carcasses before they progress to the next stage of the operation and Production data can be viewed real-time on either the machine LCD screen or remotely via our Management Information System.

A flexible squeezing belt transports the product to a perforated drum and gently squeezes the softer particles like meat and fat through the perforation. The harder particles such as sinews, cartilage and bones remain outside of the drum. The raw product and the hole diameter of the drum determine the texture of the final product.

Chicken is the nation's favourite meat - three-quarters of us eat it at least once a fortnight, and it's even more popular with families, with a third eating chicken several times a week.

And no wonder, when it's so tasty, versatile and easy to prepare. Chicken is also higher in protein and lower in fat than red meat, making it a nutritious, healthy choice for the whole family.

And then of course there is the alternative. Hand butchered in a shed with by someone in blood stained overalls that have been on all day. At a rate of one bird every 3 minutes, thats 20 birds an hour. Pay the butcher the minimum wage and add about 30p to the cost of a bird.

Find for those with plenty of money, but for us struggling to feed children, I'll take the clean, clinical factory every time.
