Abstract

Attempts were made to improve the textural quality of French-fried potato produced with S potato varieties popular in Korea. The most suitable variety to produce French-fried potato, among 5 varieties tested, was Superior. Texture of French-fried potato was improved by air drying blanched potato strips at room temperature for over 1 hour, immersing potato strips in 6% starch solution at $60^{\circ}C$ for 2 minutes, and immersing in 1.5% hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose(HPMC) solution at $60^{\circ}C$ for 2 minutes. Textural quality of French-fried potato was significantly improved, when blanched potato strips were subjected to air drying at room temperature for 1 hour, followed by immersing them in 1.5% HPMC solution at $60^{\circ}C$ for 2 minutes prior to frying.
