Abstract

Effect of Mesona Blumes gum (MBG)/rice starch mixed gels on the fat substitute of Chinese Cantonese-style sausage was investigated in this study, monitored with physicochemical properties and sensory evaluation analyses. Experimental results suggest that there were no significant differences among pH, yield, residual nitrite and TBARS of high-fat (28%), low-fat (18%) and fat-substituted (18%) sausages. The same fat content of low-fat and fat-substituted sausages would aid to compare their physicochemical properties more effectively. In addition, the emulsifying stability and water holding capacity of fat-substituted sausages were better than those of the other groups. During refrigerated sto..
