Antioxidant effects, as measured by thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TEARS), of ground cooked Minnesota wild rice (WR) added at 0, 15 and 25% (weight-weight) to fresh-frozen and precooked extra lean ground beef patties were investigated. WR generally resulted in more desirable sensory panel ratings and lower TBARS values for the fresh-frozen product at 8 weeks frozen storage but not at 0 week or 16 weeks. WR, especially at the 25% level, generally resulted in more desirable sensory panel ratings and lower TBARS in the precooked product at 4 and 8 weeks frozen storage. Ground WR can be an effective antioxidant in fresh-frozen and precooked ground beef patties stored at -23C.
