Sausages formulated with zeaxanthin and norbixin were found to reduce levels of oxidation products, indicating reduced spoilage after refrigerated storage for 45 days, according to findings published in pigments performed significantly better than the synthetic preservative sodium erythorbate
"Although all pigments were able to preserve the oxidative stability of the sausages stored at 4 degrees Celsius for 45 days, zeaxanthin and norbixin seemed to be the most efficient antioxidants when MDA equivalents were used as the oxidation marker," wrote the researchers.
Results showed that zeaxanthin and norbixin were the most effective, while no effect was observed for sodium erythorbate.
The Brazilian and American scientists produced six sausage formulations with sodium erythorbate, norbixin, lycopene, zeaxanthin, beta-carotene, or dextrose at a level of 0.05 grams per 100 grams.
"This can be associated with the intermediate polarities and locations in the emulsion interface of both zeaxanthin and norbixin.
