Changes in Properties of Polysaccharide Iota Carrageenan-added Surimi
Mixture During Cold Storage

부경대학교 식품공학과/식품연구소, 1부경대학교 수산과학연구소


    Iota carrageenan-containing surimi was refrigerated for 7 days to investigate the change in its properties. Physical properties, color differences, and sensory evaluation were tested for analysis after addition of 0-3 Wt% iota carrageenan. In unheated surimi, the 2% carrageenan- containing surimi had higher chromaticity and color difference compared to the surimi without added carrageenan. However, the surimi with 3% iota carrageenan showed enhanced yellowness, resulting in a modified color difference. Surimi containing iota carrageenan showed the same trend in color difference in heated surimi after storage for 7 days, particularly when carrageenan content was 2% or greater. The hardness, gumminess, and chewiness of the heated Iota carrageenan-containing surimi also increased after 7 days of storage. Compared to surimi without added carrageenan, the heated Iota carrageenan-containing surimi had higher hardness, gumminess, chewiness, and lower adhesiveness after storage. The overall preference for surimi decreased, while the hardness increased, when carrageenan was added. Therefore, the addition of the iota carrageenan to stored surimi can significantly enhance its hardness.
