This review by Polish researchers looks at the most recent advances in proteomic LC-MS (Liquid Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry) methods to identify meat species in processed meat products. The review looks at both low and high resolution LC-MS applied to the identification and detection of heat‐stable species‐specific peptide markers. In the case of myofibrillar and sarcoplasmic proteins, LC-MS/MS was able to detect 105 heat stable peptides in processed meat, and in thermally processed samples, myosin, myoglobin, hemoglobin, l‐lactase dehydrogenase A and β‐enolase are the main protein sources of heat‐stable markers.
