Inhibition of the discoloration of yellowtail dark muscle by lignan.


PMID 19661688

Abstract

The inhibitory effect of (-)-, (+)-matairesinol and (-)-, (+)-secoisolariciresinol on the discoloration of dark muscle (chiai in Japanese) of two-year-old yellowtail (hamachi in Japanese) was evaluated by measuring the X and a(*) values. (-)-Matairesinol was most effective for retaining the red color of dark muscle in this experiment.
