The effects of different plant oils (soybean, hazelnut, canola, sunflower, corn, cotton and olive) on emulsion capacity (EC), emulsion stability (ES), emulsion density (ED) and apparent yield stress values of emulsion (raw emulsion; AYSe) and emulsion gel (cooked emulsion; AYSg) of beef, chicken and turkey meats were studied by using a model system. Olive oil increased EC, AYSe and AYSg values and corn oil increased ES values significantly (P < 0.01). Moreover, olive oil decreased ED values significantly (P < 0.01). The effects of chicken meat on EC, turkey meat on ES and beef on AYSe were found to be significant (P < 0.01). The plant oils increased EC values of chicken meat significantly (P < 0.01). Olive oil had higher effect on EC values of chicken, beef and turkey meat. It was found to be 140.7, 132.5 and 128.9 mL (450 mg)(-1) protein, respectively. However, olive oil had higher effect on AYSg values of turkey, chicken and beef. It was found to be 492.9, 492.3 and 487.7 Nm(-2), respectively. In addition, olive oil decreased ED values of beef significantly (P < 0.01). The effect of corn oil on ES values of beef was found to be higher (P < 0.05) as 75.77%.
