Effect of Hot Air Dried Kimchi Powder on the Quality Characteristics of Low-fat Sausages

열풍건조한 김치 분말이 저지방 소시지의 품질 특성에 미치는 영향

  • Published : 2008.06.30


The effects of the addition of Kimchi powder at levels of 1%, 2%, and 3% (w/w) to sausage formulation on the quality characteristics of low-fat sausage were determined. The CIE L-values of low-fat sausages were lower than the control (p<0.05), and were inversely proportional to the level of Kimchi powder (p<0.05). The CIE a- and CIE b-values of sausages increased with increasing levels of Kimchi powder (p<0.05), and the pH of sausages decreased in proportion to Kimchi powder acidity. Kimchi powder was effective at retaining added water in low-fat sausages since cooking yield, emulsion stability, and viscosity with the addition of 3% Kimchi powder was similar to that of the control. The protein and ash contents of sausages were not affected by Kimchi powder addition (p>0.05), while sausages containing 3% Kimchi powder had the highest water content (p<0.05). With increasing Kimchi powder concentration, hardness, gumminess, chewiness, and sensory scores increased in low-fat sausages (p<0.05).
