Oxidative rancidity: a reaction of the triglycerides with oxygen; Hydrolytic rancidity : a reaction causing the fatty acids to be released from the glycerol backbone. Lipolysis, the enzymic hydrolysis of milk lipids to free fatty acids and partial glycerides, is a constant concern to the dairy industry because of the detrimental . Rancidity is the development of unpleasant smells in fats and oils, Hydrolytic rancidity Oxidative rancidity (auto-oxidation)Caused by the.

The cusp point of the oxidation curve the point where a rapid rise in the conductivity starts gives the induction time of the rancidification reaction, [10] and can be taken as an indication of the oxidative stability of the sample.

Antimicrobial agents can also delay or prevent rancidification by inhibiting the growth of bacteria or other micro-organisms that affect the process.

This reaction of lipid with water may require a catalystleading to the formation of free fatty acids and glycerol. For example, even though meat is held under refrigeration or in a frozen state, the poly-unsaturated fat will continue to oxidize and slowly become rancid.

Rancidity may also be caused by oxidative processes Oxidative rancidity. This is often hastened by the presence of lipolytic enzymes lipases in the tissue and microbes, which in the presence of moisture and warm temperature bring about hydrolysis.

Rancidification – Wikipedia

By continuous measurement of the conductivity of this solution, hydrrolytic curves can be generated. Oxidation of unsaturated bonds in the glycerides of fats proceeds as that for the fatty acids.

Natural hydroljtic include ascorbic acid vitamin C and tocopherols vitamin E. Hydeolytic rancidity can be prevented by light-proof packaging, oxygen-free atmosphere air-tight containers and by the addition of antioxidants. Oxidation at the double bonds on the unsaturated glycerides may form peroxides which then decompose by hydrolysis to from aldehydes, ketones and acids of smaller carbon chain causing objectionable odor and taste.


Oxidative stability is a measure of oil or fat resistance to oxidation. The fat oxidation process, potentially resulting in rancidity, begins immediately after the animal is slaughtered and the muscle, intra-muscular, inter-muscular and surface fat becomes exposed to oxygen of the air.

Principles of Biochemistry (2+1)

It is greatly increased by exposure to light. The natural antioxidants tend to be short-lived, [8] so synthetic antioxidants are used when a longer shelf-life is preferred.

Hydrolytic rancidity refers to the odor that develops when triglycerides are hydrolyzed and free fatty acids are released. Oxygen may add at the double bonds to form peroxides, which may then decompose into other substances. This reaction causes the release of malodorous and highly volatile aldehydes and ketones. This process is called oxidative rancidity. Nearly all natural fats are oxidized when exposed to air, light and moisture. Naturwissenschaftliche Grundlagen der Lebensmittelzubereitung.

Microbial rancidity refers to a process in which microorganisms, such as bacteria or moldsuse their enzymes such as lipases to break down fat. Look up rancidification in Wiktionary, the free dictionary.

Specifically, it is the hydrolysis or autoxidation of fats into short-chain aldehydes and ketoneswhich are objectionable in taste and odor. The Rancimat method, the oxidative stability instrument OSI and the oxidograph were all developed as automatic versions of the more complicated AOM active oxygen methodwhich is based on measuring peroxide hydrloytic, [10] for determining the induction time of fats and oils.

FPT Oxidative and hydrolytic rancidity

Oxidative rancidity is associated with the degradation by oxygen in the air. Transport of fatty acids into mitochondria.

Certain compounds induce oxidation by their presence and they are called as pro-oxidants e. In addition, rancidification can be decreased by storing fats and oils in a cool, dark place with little exposure to oxygen or free radicals, since heat and light accelerate the rate of reaction of fats with oxygen. Rancidity is the complete or incomplete oxidation or hydrolysis of fats and oils when exposed to air, light, or moisture or by bacterial action, resulting in unpleasant taste and odor.


In particular, short-chain fatty acidssuch as butyric acidare malodorous. Cleavage by thiolase 6. Because of the nature of free-radical reactions, the reaction is catalyzed by sunlight. Views Read Edit View history. This chemical process continues during frozen storage, though more slowly at lower temperature. Oxygen scavenging technology can be used to remove oxygen from food packaging and therefore prevent oxidative rancidification.

Antioxidants are those compounds that prevent the oxidation of fat. The addition of minute amounts of certain synthetic compounds also prevents oxidation and they are called synthetic antioxidants. Addition of water to the double bond. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Some compounds increase the antioxidant activity of the antioxidants and they are called as synergies e. One of the most popular methods currently in use is the Rancimat method. Free fatty acid value is a measure of hydrolytic rancidity.

Three pathways for rancidification are recognized: Rancidity may due to hydrolysis of component glycerides of a fat into free fatty acids and glycerol or a monoglycerides and diglycerides Hydrolytic rancidity.

The volatile oxidation products largely formic acid [9] are carried by the air current into the measuring vessel, where they are absorbed dissolve in the measuring fluid distilled water.

The effectiveness of water-soluble antioxidants is limited in preventing direct oxidation within fats, but is valuable in intercepting free radicals that travel through the aqueous parts of foods.
