    I have read a lot about AGEs and in red roasted meat they are especially high- they form when sugar molecules are kind of combined with Amino acids… But here is my question: Could someone explain the metabolic pathway how they are formed in meat? Is this due to the muscle glycogen? Because meat does not contain sugar- just a tiny amount of muscle glucose- but this muscle glucose after killing the animal normally is converted into lactic acid…So why does meat contain so much more AGEs then Bread? Thank you 😀
