This study aimed to investigate the effect of dietary hazelnut skin (HNS), a by-product of confectionery industry, on the oxidative stability of lamb meat. Twenty-two finishing lambs were randomly assigned to 2 groups and fed ad libitum for 56 days on different concentrate-based diets: one control and one experimental, in which 150 g/kg of corn was replaced by HNS. After slaughter, the fat-soluble vitamins content and hydrophilic antioxidant capacity were assessed in fresh meat, as well as color, lipid and protein stability over 7 days of shelf-life trial. Dietary HNS increased (P < 0.001) the tocopherols content of meat and reduced (P < 0.001) lipid oxidation during 7 days of refrigerated storage. Meat from lambs fed HNS showed different (P < 0.05) instrumental color parameters. No diet effect (P > 0.05) was observed on the development of metmyoglobin, hydroperoxides, thiol groups, and carbonyl groups. Feeding HNS to lambs improves the oxidative stability of raw meat by delaying lipid oxidation thanks to the antioxidant molecules (tocopherols and phenolic compounds) contained in this by-product.

Abstract

This study aimed to investigate the effect of dietary hazelnut skin (HNS), a by-product of confectionery industry, on the oxidative stability of lamb meat. Twenty-two finishing lambs were randomly assigned to 2 groups and fed ad libitum for 56 days on different concentrate-based diets: one control and one experimental, in which 150 g/kg of corn was replaced by HNS. After slaughter, the fat-soluble vitamins content and hydrophilic antioxidant capacity were assessed in fresh meat, as well as color, lipid and protein stability over 7 days of shelf-life trial. Dietary HNS increased (P < 0.001) the tocopherols content of meat and reduced (P < 0.001) lipid oxidation during 7 days of refrigerated storage. Meat from lambs fed HNS showed different (P < 0.05) instrumental color parameters. No diet effect (P > 0.05) was observed on the development of metmyoglobin, hydroperoxides, thiol groups, and carbonyl groups. Feeding HNS to lambs improves the oxidative stability of raw meat by delaying lipid oxidation thanks to the antioxidant molecules (tocopherols and phenolic compounds) contained in this by-product.
