BLADEHAMMER: Tenderizing and premasaging in one single step



One of the latest innovations METALQUIMIA has recently introduced is the automatic tenderizing/pre-massaging unit, the BLADEHAMMER. This patented and compact machine is made of two single units that interact with the meat, causing a synergic tenderizing/stretching (hammering) effect on the muscular fibers, significantly increasing the myofibrillar protein extraction surface as well as multiplying the interfibrillar free spaces which allows the brine to enter these spaces during the first steps of massaging, which results in a reduction of total massaging time and consequently an increase of productivity of the massaging machines, increased cooking yield, increased slicing yield, highly improved meat texture and greater intermuscular binding in the cooked meat products.
