Abstract

This paper describes what components produce a red pigment in the thiobarbituric acid (TBA) test of peroxidized lipids. Alk-2-enals, alka-2,4-dienals and hydroperoxide functions are potential candidates for the red pigment in the TBA test. The TBA test can be regarded as an excellent method to reflect the combined effect of these components and thus the degree of lipid oxidation.
