Sodium erythorbate and ascorbic acid were compared as a means to stabilize surface colour of bone-in beef steaks in high-oxygen modified atmosphere (80% oxygen and 20% carbon dioxide). Bone-in strip loins (n=8) were fabricated into 1.9-cm thick steaks, of which both the lumbar vertebrae and longissimus lumborum were topically treated with either ascorbic acid or sodium erythorbate (0, 0.05, 0.1, 0.5, 1.0, or 1.5%, wt/wt basis). Colour (L(∗)a(∗)b(∗)) was evaluated before treatment and 24h after packaging (display at 1°C). Sodium erythorbate was as effective as ascorbic acid for inhibiting vertebrae discolouration (P>0.05). Either reducing agent at 0.5, 1.0, or 1.5% improved (P<0.05) vertebrae redness (compared with 0%, 0.05% and 0.1%). No detrimental effects on muscle colour were observed. When selecting antioxidants intended for bone-in beef steaks displayed in high-oxygen packaging, sodium erythorbate may be a cost effective substitute for ascorbic acid.
