Book: Studies on Papaya Leaf Tea (self-published digitally, 2009)
Author(s): Virginia Robertson
Ref: Papain breaks down meat and is best known as a commercially-prepared tenderising cooking ingredient. It is important to thoroughly cook treated meat to inactivate the enzyme, which is heat resistant. If treated meat is stored after cooking (say, as a leftover or because it was cooked a long time before serving) the tenderising action may continue and the meat will digest to an unpleasant texture. -http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/h2g2/A9913809
