Color stability and biochemical characteristics of bovine muscles when enhanced with L- or D-potassium lactate in high-oxygen modified atmospheres.


Two different bovine muscles -M.longissimus lumborum (LD) and M. psoas major (PM) - were injection-enhanced (n=10, respectively) with solutions containing phosphate and potassium L- or D-lactate, cut into steaks, packaged with a high-oxygen (80% O(2)) modified atmosphere packaging, stored 9d at 2°C and then displayed for 5d at 1°C. Instrumental color, total… (More)
