Abstract

BACKGROUND: The Maillard reaction occurring between amino acids and sugars produces neo-formed compounds having certain levels of antioxidant activity depending on the reaction conditions and the type of reactants. The objective of this study was to investigate enzymatic browning inhibition capacity of Maillard reaction products (MRPs) formed from different amino acids including arginine (Arg), histidine (His), lysine (Lys) and proline (Pro).
