Abstract

Warmed-over flavor (WOF) is a common problem in the food industry, especially because of prepared food service entrées. WOF involves the development of off-flavors and odors from lipid oxidation products as well as a decrease in 'meaty' flavors due to protein degradation. A variety of useful techniques are at hand that can be employed to inhibit WOF; their applications span many aspects of production, including formulation, processing, cooking, storage, and even choice of livestock feed. The most effective strategies typically utilize a combination of more than one approach and require a comprehensive consideration of the product and its desired flavor profile.
