This study was conducted to observe effects of different gas compositions on color of pork chops packaged in modified atmospheres. Gaseous compositions used were: MAP1 (75% O 2 :25% CO 2 ); MAP2 (70% O 2 :30%CO 2 ) and MAP3 (80% O 2 :20% CO 2 ). Sensory evaluations of meat color and chemical properties (acid number, peroxide value, a w , pH, TVB-N and TBARs), were carried on the 1 st , 5 th , 7 th , 9 th and 12 th day of storage. The sensory evaluations of chop color in different MAP
