Abstract:

Ether extracts of the several meat smoking fluids investigated do comparatively little to prevent the spoiling of fat by oxidation. When the amount is increased to 4, the antioxidizing effect is more pronounced. Differences in the phenol composition of the smoking fluids investigated consist in the absence or comparatively low content of monovalent and very simple bivalent phenols in MINKh fluid. Pyrocatechol, 3-methyl pyrocatechol, 4-methyl pyrocatechol, and especially pyrogallol possess the most marked antioxidizing properties. Author
