- Studies involving freeze-dried methyl linolenate-gelatin foams indicate that the extent of lipid-protein interaction corresponds to the degree of autoxidation of the lipid fraction. It appears that approximately 11% of the malonaldehyde as defined by the 2-thiobarbituric acid test is firmly bound to the protein. The induction period of autoxidation is decreased by the addition of 20 ppm Fe +2 to the system and greatly increased by addition of 0.005% tertiary butyl hydroquinone. Menhaden oil-gelatin foams indicate that similar results could be expected from dehydrated foodstuffs of moderate lipid content.
