Iridescence in beef caused by multilayer interference from sarcomere discs.


Microscope photometry of raw and cooked iliocostalis was used to test the hypothesis that interference colours in beef may originate from reflections from sarcomere discs. Evidence in support of the hypothesis was, firstly, that interference colours were not altered by rotating a polarizer in the illumination pathway, or by rotating a polarizer in the… (More)
