sausage, Jerusalem artichoke powde, functional food, storage stability


The effects of Jerusalem artichoke powder (JAP) on the quality characteristics and storage stability of fermented sausage were investigated. The replacement of added beef fat with JAP were carried out during sausage manufacturing. Replacement of beef fat with JAP resulted in a significant decrease in TBARS and pH values and an increase in moisture and protein content in sausages during fermentation and storage (p<0.05). L* values decreased and a* values increased by adding JAP (p<0.05). JAP addition decreased hardness values and increased adhesiveness (p<0.05). The use of JAP encourages the development of lactic acid bacteria and positively affected their counts during the fermentation (p<0.05).
