Resumen

The meat greening is an abnormal pigmentation related to microbiological contamination and lipid oxidation during storage. This color change results from sulfmyoglobin (SulfMb) production promoted by the reaction between metmyoglobin (MetMb), H2O2, and thiol compounds. Spectral studies on cooked meat suggested the production of SulfMb, probably due to the increment of free radicals during thermal treatment. Thus, we evaluated the involvement of free radicals and heme iron in the SulfMb production from horse MetMb and free cysteine (Cys) during thermal treatment. The results confirm that the reaction of SulfMb production at meat muscle pH (5.7–7.2) during heat treatment is a product of free radicals formed from Cys oxidation (SH[rad]) and reactive oxygen species (O2[rad]−, H2O2). This is catalyzed by the release of heme iron, thus promoting a consecutive reaction having MbFe(IV)[dbnd]O as a reaction intermediate.
