Objective: To compare the impact of OxiKan® R Plus and Ascorbic acid in the shelf life of cooked, ground pork patties.
Method: TBARS (Thiobarbituric Acid Reactive Substances) Study
Thiobarbituric Acid Reactive Substances or TBARS analysis is the most common method used to test lipid oxidation in meat. Lipid oxidisation in meat produces malonaldehyde, which on reacting with TBA generates a fluorescence substance. This fluorescence substance is quantified and taken as a measure for lipid oxidation level. The lesser the production of malonaldehyde, the higher will be the shelf life.
