Thermal Stability of Total Lipids Extracted from Zlatibor Bacon
MetadataShow full item record
In this study, non-oxidative and oxidative thermogravimetric analysis was applied as a method for determining the thermal stability of the total lipids extracted from Zlatibor bacon in different phases of production (raw samples, 10th and 30th day of smoking and 30th day of storage). The activation energies of the thermal degradation and oxidation of the total lipids extracted from examined samples were determined. A moderate increase of the activation energy, as well as the other information gained from TG analyses, indicated that there were no significant oxidative changes in Zlatibor bacon lipids during the production and storing.
