The results were either comparable or higher than those reported by these latter authors: the differences ranged from 19% and 23% higher for uncooked beef and pork, respectively to 768% higher for cooked, dark chicken meat. These differences may, in part, be a reflection of improved detection methods, differences in sample selection methods or differences in definitions of edible portions. Roe and Weston consistently found that appreciable losses of taurine occurred when meats were baked (range of losses 7-63%). When samples were boiled, the losses of taurine were even higher, ranging from 49 to 87% of the taurine found in uncooked samples. In contrast, Laidlaw et al. were generally unable to demonstrate appreciable losses of taurine from cooked meat samples by the cooking methods they used, which generally resembled baking.
High levels of taurine were observed in some seafoods as has been reported previously. However, not all sea creatures contain large amounts of taurine. Shrimp, eg. have levels of taurine similar to that found in most meats.
