USA, Des Moines, Iowa. Kemin Industries, a leading provider of shelf-life extension and food safety solutions for food and beverage industries, developed a meat handling guide to illustrate key aspects of the antioxidant mode of action and share additional insights on oxidation.
The guide provides simple illustrations to explain the complex process of oxidation, how it affects the quality of meat and poultry, and how antioxidants delay that oxidation to lengthen shelf-life and help maintain consumer acceptance.
Infographics are used in the meat handling guide to:
• Highlight the fact that oxidation starts as soon as meat leaves the facility, impacting meat quality and consumer acceptability.
• Illustrate how lipid oxidation is responsible for deterioration in meat and poultry quality, including off-flavors and off-colors.
• Explain the antioxidants’ role in significantly delaying or preventing oxidation, through the antioxidant mode of action.
