EINECS: 207-949-1


Lycopene is an unsaturated olefin compound, the main pigment in ripe tomatoes, and one of the common carotenoids. Lycopene does not have β-carotene's β-pycnogenol ring structure, so it cannot be converted into vitamin A in the body and does not belong to provitamin A. The molecular formula is C40H56, and there are many cis-trans isomers. Lycopene is a fat-soluble substance, insoluble in water, methanol, ethanol, soluble in ether, petroleum ether, hexane, acetone, soluble in chloroform, carbon disulfide, benzene and other organic solvents. There are 11 conjugated double bonds and 2 non-conjugated double bonds in the lycopene molecule, so its stability is very poor, and it is prone to cis-trans isomerization and oxidative degradation. Factors affecting the stability of lycopene include oxygen, light, heat, acid, metal ions, oxidants and antioxidants, etc.

Application in meat products
Meat products undergo changes in color, texture and flavor due to oxidation during processing and storage. At the same time, with the increase of storage time, the reproduction of microorganisms, especially botulinum toxin, will also make meat spoiled, so chemical preservative nitrite is often used to inhibit the growth of microorganisms, prevent meat spoilage and improve meat flavor and quality. color. However, studies have found that nitrite can combine with protein breakdown products to form carcinogenic nitrosamines under certain conditions, so the addition of nitrite to meat has long been controversial. Lycopene is the main component of the red pigment of tomatoes and other fruits. It has strong antioxidant capacity and good physiological functions. It can be used as a preservative and coloring agent for meat products. In addition, the acidity of lycopene-rich tomato products will reduce the pH value of meat, and will inhibit the growth of spoilage microorganisms to a certain extent. effect.
Application in edible oil

In order to delay the deterioration of edible oils, certain antioxidants are often added during processing. However, with the improvement of people's awareness of food safety, the safety issues of various antioxidants are constantly being raised. Therefore, finding safe natural antioxidants has become a focus of food additives. Lycopene has superior physiological functions and strong antioxidant properties, which can efficiently quench singlet oxygen and scavenge free radicals, and inhibit lipid peroxidation. Therefore, adding it to edible oil can alleviate oil deterioration.
