ABSTRACT


The influence of the addition of same antioxidants such as: BHT and protein hydrolysate and rosemary extract on some fat characteristic and sensory quality of raw sausages was checked during this research.

The quality of experimental sausages was evaluated by determination: their sensory desirability and their acid numbers and content of free fatty acids.

The results of the performed investigations revealed that the both checked factors of technological variability, i.e. the application of three types of antioxidants and the time of maturation diversified the results of examined quality parameters of raw sausages. It was further demonstrated that the applied antioxidants caused the slightly reduction of the acid number value, increased the total content of the lower volatile fatty acids and diversified the proportions of the determined free fatty acids. It was also found that raw sausages manufactured with the assistance of selected antioxidants were characterized by a slightly better sensory desirability of the taste and odour in comparison with the control sausages.

Key words: raw sausages, fat, sensory, quality, antioxidants.
