Abstract: The effect of beta-mercaptoethanol (0-2%) addition to thermally and/or pressure-treated samples on [6S]-5-methyltetrahydrofolate was studied. Degradation of [6S]-5-methyltetrahydrofolate during both thermal and pressure treatments was mainly caused by oxidation, and the oxidized folates could be partly/completely reduced by beta-mercaptoethanol. The addition of beta-mercaptoethanol (2%) to the thermally and pressure-treated samples overestimated the "actual" stability of [6S]-5-methyltetrahydrofolate and misled the obtained kinetic information.
