Beta-Agonist

Beta-agonists have chemical structures, similar to the naturally occurring catecholamines, adrenaline and noradrenaline. They were originally produced for the treatment of respiratory diseases such as asthma.  Beta-agonists facilitate the use of fats rather than glucose as a fuel source. Therefore, meat production is increased while fat deposition is inhibited. This improves the meat:fat ratio of animals and leads to the production of higher quality meat at lower cost.  There is a risk that residues of beta-agonists may be present in meat products, which may be harmful to the consumer.  The use of beta-agonists as growth promoters has been banned in most countries.  Consequently, it is important that abuse of these compounds is monitored. 

The Randox Food Diagnostics Beta-Agonist ELISA test kit detects 12 beta-agonist compounds within meat.
