The paper presents studies on the presence or formation of d - enantiomers of amino acids in animal tissues or organs, in meat products during its production processes. It is shown that the process of epimerization of L - amino acid residues with the formation of D-enantiomers affect the reduction of the properties of food products, including the formation of oncoassociated subsequent effects on the human body.

Modern control of the quantitative and qualitative composition of d-enantiomers of amino acids in food products, monitoring for stratification of the increased risk of toxic compounds in food are becoming an urgent medical and social problem. The studies planned in this paper are aimed at developing approaches to the creation of food products that reduce the oncogenic alimentary load on human health by solving the problem of technological modification of production, eliminating or minimizing post - translational modifications in proteins that contribute to the formation of d-enantiomers of amino acids. These studies will create a scientific and technological database associated with the risk assessment of carcinogenesis in protein matrices of animal origin. Based on the presented analysis, the task of developing and testing a method to control the accumulation of D-isomers in the course of various technological processes of meat production is extremely popular.
