Date palm is an interesting source of bioactive compounds that could be used as ingredient in meat products; thus a campagne type pork liver pâté was elaborated using fresh date by-products (0, 5, 10 and 15%). Physicochemical properties, pigment and lipid oxidation, residual nitrite level, texture and sensory analysis during 4. days after the elaboration process were evaluated. Date paste mostly incorporated moisture, fibre and phenolic compounds. Physicochemical parameters, myoglobin content and heme iron stability were not severely affected. Addition of 10% of date was enough to avoid lipid oxidation through all storage times. Colour was the most affected parameter; however, in terms of overall acceptability, panellists preferred samples with added date. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.
