The ability of the spectrophotometric thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) test to determine malondialdehyde (MDA) in various food matrices was evaluated. MDA was extracted from the foods, the extract reacted with thiobarbituric acid (TBA) and the formed TBA-MDA adduct was measured spectrophotometricaly at 352nm. In parallel, the TBA-MDA adduct was analyzed with High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) coupled with fluorescence detection. Oils, unprocessed and uncooked meat and fish products, did not exhibit any significant difference in the amount of MDA measured by the two methods , indicating that the major substance reacting with TBA and forming an adduct that absorbs at 532nm was malondialdehyde. However, in products such as dry nuts, pork sausages, cooked fish and gouda cheese an overestimation of malondialdehyde was observed, indicating TBARS test unsuitable for accurate determination of MDA. Furthermore, the results in the present work suggest that overestimation of MDA by the TBARS test as it was applied, is related to the interference of other than secondary lipid oxidation products.
