The effect of lipid content and saline seasoning on the mutagenicity during the charcoal-broiling Process of beef, Pork and fish samples was examined by Ames test using Salmonella typhimurium TA98 and TA100 strains. Chloroform; methanol(1:1) extract of broiled samples showed a higher sensitive response toward TA98 strain than TA100 strain, indicating a frameshift mutation. The three samples of low lipid content demonstrated a slightly higher mutagenic activity, and the beef and pork samples treated with 20% saline solution showed a remarkable reduction in mutagenicity than the untreated samples.
