ABSTRACT



Substitution of meat with a protein preparation introduces to the product flavour intrinsic for the additive and results in a decreased amount of meat flavour precursors. The degree of observed changes in the quality of the finished product depends primarily on the amounts and type of added preparation. Although several substances may be used to improve the taste and aroma of protein preparations or products obtained with their use, herbs are found least objectionable from the consumer point of view. In the presented study a mixture of lovage roots, dried garlic and marjoram at the 1.5 : 1.0 : 4.0 ratio was used to mask the odour of dried blood plasma used to produce wiener type sausage. After aromatization and colouring of sausages with cured blood added (0.9%), sensory quality of this sausage improved on average by 0.7 points (in a 5-point scale). Sausage produced with no blood plasma added received the score of 4.5 points, whereas sausage with unmodified plasma added received 3.6 points. Aromatized and coloured sausage, which scored 4.3 points, was not different in terms of consumer traits from sausage produced with no additives.

Key words: sausages, blood plasma, flavour, colour, herbs, quality.
