Predicting the Oxidative Degradation of Raw Beef Meat during Cold Storage Using Numerical Simulations and Sensors—Prospects for Meat and Fish Foods

Abstract

Preventing animal-source food waste is an important pathway to reducing malnutrition and improving food system sustainability. Uncontrolled color variation due to oxidation is a source of waste as it prompts food rejection by consumers. Evaluation of oxidation–reduction potential (ORP) can help to predict and prevent oxidation and undesirable color changes. A new sensor and two modeling approaches—a phenomenological model and a reaction–diffusion model—were successfully used to predict the oxidative browning of beef ribeye steaks stored under different temperature and oxygen concentration conditions. Both models predicted similar storage durations for acceptable color, although deviating for higher and lower redness levels, which are of no interest for meat acceptance. Simulations under higher oxygen concentrations lead to a few days of delay in the redness change, as observed in practice, under modified atmosphere packaging. In meat juice, variation in ORP measured by the sensor correlated with the redness variation. However, in meat, sensors promote oxidation in the adjacent area, which is unacceptable for industrial use. This paper discusses the potential, limits, and prospects of the mathematical models and sensors, developed for beef. A strategy is proposed to couple these approaches and include the effect of microorganisms.
