The aim of the present study was to develop an alternative method to the traditional curing process using water vapour permeable bags to obtain a dry-cured pork loin product. The dry-cured pork loins obtained by this mew process showed an adequate hygienic quality and good sensory acceptance. The salting-curing process using water permeable bags requires less manipulation, reduces waste generation and allows greater control during processing. This technique could be an interesting alternative to the traditional processes, improving the hygienic quality of the products and minimizing the environmental impact.
