Physical and chemical reasons of meat red color appearance
Murashev S.V., Vorobyov S.A., Zhemchuzhnikov M.E.
The paper considers pigments contained in meat, their properties and effect on
natural red color of meat. The mechanism creating fresh meat color is analyzed from
the point of view of chemistry and quantum biophysics. In non self-luminous bodies,
to which meat belongs, the color emerges as a result of pigments selectively
absorbing a part of visible spectrum that turns into heat.
