Carboxymethyl chitosan (CMC) was added to pan bread, prepared by the straight-dough method, and its effects on shelf-life, retrogradation, antimicrobial activity, water activity, and sensory quality of pan bread were evaluated. The results of differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and thermoconstanter analysis for retrogradation indicated that shelf-life of pan bread was significantly extended by addition of CMC. Growth of microorganisms, including bakery molds (Aspergillus, Penicillium, etc.) was significantly inhibited by adding CMC to pan bread. Sensory color, off-flavor and overall acceptability of pan bread were stable during storage. However, sensory texture of control was significantly different from that of sample with added CMC.
