Abstract

The data support the conclusion that vitamin C (VC) supplemented to feedlot cattle consuming high sulfur (S)diets may increase tenderness of the beef longissimus dorsi by protecting the protease µ-calpain. Additionally, VC supplementation improved the fatty acid profile of meat products by increasing omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids(FA) and decreasing saturated fatty acids (SFA).
