Special Issue "Lipid Oxidation in Meat and Poultry"
A special issue of Antioxidants (ISSN 2076-3921).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2016)
Lipid oxidation is one of the major factors affecting the quality of meat and poultry. Numerous works on lipid oxidation, which include internal and external factors affecting lipid oxidation, mechanisms involved, prevention methods, and sensory characteristics of the products. Oxidized meat products not only influence the eating quality of the products but also is considered to have harmful effects to the health of humans by influencing the oxidative stress of the body. Recent studies also indicated that various stresses to animal can have significant impact to the susceptibility of meat to oxidative changes. Dietary antioxidants, oxidation status of dietary fats, and supplementation of certain minerals are closely related to the oxidative status of animal body. This Special Issue will publish both reviews and original research papers on the roles of dietary antioxidants, oxidative status of dietary fats and composition of dietary fats on the oxidative stresses of animal body, the performance of animals, and the quality of meat. The effects of external stresses on protein oxidation and its influence on meat quality, prevention measures of lipid oxidation during processing and storage, use natural antioxidants including antioxidant proteins and peptides, phenolic compounds and packaging strategies to prevent lipid oxidation in meat and poultry will be included.
