galangal Root extract
galangal Root extract Alpinia galanga galangine, alpinin
Raw and cooked minced beef samples containing commercial antioxidants or galangal (Alpinia galanga) extract were evaluated for storage stability at 4 ¡À 1 ¡ãC. Thiobarbituric acid (TBA) values of raw and cooked samples containing galangal extract at 5 and 10% (w/w) were significantly (p < 0.05) lower than those of the controls. In raw beef, galangal extract at 10% (w/w) was as effective as -tocopherol at 0.10% (w/w) and butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) at 0.02% (w/w) in inhibiting/minimising lipid oxidation. Galangal extract also delayed the induction period of lipid oxidation in cooked beef but was again observed to be effective at a higher concentration than the commercial antioxidants studied.
No difference in total plate count was observed in raw beef, but samples with galangal extract had higher Hunter a (redness) and chroma (colourfulness relative to the brightness of the surroundings) values. However, cooked beef treated with galangal extract or antioxidants had lower Hunter a values and total microbial counts than the control. Thus galangal extract may be a possible natural antioxidant source for meat and meat products.
