When the [H.sub.2][O.sub.2] concentration is increased to 2.5 g [L.sup.-1] the performance was very similar, probably due to excess hydrogen peroxide, which can act as a hydroxyl radical scavenger (Eq.
During the experiment, the meat samples showed higher scavenging activities for the hydroxyl radicals than for other radicals indicating lower [IC.sub.50] values.
Especially, hydroxyl radical (OH*) plays important role in the decolorization of synthetic dye because it quickly cleavage double bond (-N=N-) of chromophoric group [17].
The DPPH, ABTS, and hydroxyl radical scavenging activity indicated higher contribution of lutein and zeaxanthin to the antioxidant properties of the CGM carotenoids (Table 1).

The overproduction of ROS, including superoxide anion radical, hydroxyl radical, hydrogen peroxide, reactive oxygen, DPPH radicals, and nitrogen species, could result in oxidative stress, leading to the chemical modification of key cellular components, DNA instability, the membrane integrity, and decline in enzymatic activities [30].
