TWB 08/16 Lichtschutzwirkung von Verpackungsmaterialien
Qualitätserhalt lichtempfindlicher FleischwarenA meat component model was developed to determine the effectiveness of UV-absorber in packaging films for fresh meat. Since meat is an inhomogenously grown product, the meat component model enables to investigate the influence of UV-absorber on fat oxidation and color retention on a fresh meat model system within a little while. The effect of UV-absorber was separately determined for the meat pigment (myoglobin) and the fatty component (lard). It was obvious that UV-absorber had a protective effect on the color and also on the oxidative stability of the components in the model packaging system.
