Note: mean, median, and range calculated from measurements (i.e., 2 samples, 2 replicates, and 2 repetitions for each treatment group). Samples with significant differences in their malondialdehyde level are indicated by different letters; differences detected between samples at the same aging period (Wilcoxon test).
differences detected between samples at different aging period (Kruskal-Wallis test) chi-square = 15.3934; value = 0.0004543.
