However, the major disadvantage with ESR is that it cannot quantify the Cu2+ chelating capacity and hence makes it difficult to compare the results between samples and laboratories. Lipid Peroxidation Inhibition Assay (OSI) Lipids occur in nearly all food raw materials and most of them are in the form of triacylglycerols, which are esters of fatty acids and glycerol. Two major components involved in lipid oxidation are unsaturated fatty acids and oxygen. Autoxidation (spontaneous reaction of atmospheric oxygen with lipids) is the most common process leading to oxidative deterioration.
