The treatments were (T1) basal diet (BD), (T2) BD plus seaweed extract (SWE), (T3) BD plus vitamin E (Vit E) and (T4) BD plus galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS). At slaughter longissimus dorsi (LD) steaks were excised and stored in modified atmosphere packs for a 14 day period. The supplemented diets improved the TAC of LD steaks until day 11 of storage while SWE samples exhibited the highest TAC throughout. A reduction (P < 0.05) in the level of LPO was observed in LD steaks from SWE and Vit E supplementation. Compared to basal diet, SWE and GOS exhibited lower bacterial count throughout storage. These results demonstrate the potential for the incorporation of SWE into muscle foods via the diet.||Funding Details:||European Commission - Seventh Framework Programme (FP7)||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Elsevier||Journal:||Innovative Food Science and Emerging Technologies||Volume:||37||Issue:||Part B||Start page:||269||End page:||275||Copyright (published version):||2016 Elsevier||Keywords:||Antioxidant capacity; Galactooligosaccharide; Lipid peroxidation; Meat quality; Seaweed extract; Vitamin E||DOI:||10.1016/j.ifset.2016.09.007||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
