The present work aims to evaluate the influence of different proportions of swine meat and fat on sheep meat fermented sausages coming from disposal animals. To this end, it were used four different proportions of ovine:swine meat (100:0; 66:33; 33:66 and 0:100%); and three different levels of addition of pork fat (5; 10 and 15%). Salamis with 66% sheep meat and 15% pork fat stood out, having the best averages in the sensory evaluation on several issues evaluated in this study.
