This study was carried out to investigate the efficacy of electrolyzed oxidizing(EO) water, electrolyzed oxidizing water with 0.5% citron juice and 0.1% aluminium potassium sulfate (APS) solution as the storing liquids to maintain quality and extend shelf life of peeled taro. Water content of peeled taro increased from 80.55% to 82.12∼84.24% after 25 days storage due to moisture absorption. However, there were no significant difference between treatments. In case of color value of peeled taro, L value was slowly decreased and a, b value was generally increased. Texture of peeled taro decreased from initial 4,520$\pm$75 g to 4,160$\pm$80 g after 25 days storage in EO water with 0.5% citron juice, which is the least reduction value in all treatments. Treatment of EO water with 0.5% citron juice maintained 6.99 mg%(57%) of total vitamin C after 25 days storage which showed highest total vitamin C content between treatments. In most treatments, total sugar was decreased in fast rate for 15 days storage and slowly decreased after 15 days storage. Free sugar content was not changed significantly during storage. In case of sucrose content which is the major portion of free sugar, reduction continued until the midst of storage. and after that it increased to 1.5∼2 times of initial contents. However, there were no differences between treatments and storage days in contents of fructose, glucose and maltose. Major amino acids in peeled taro were aspartic acid and glutamic acid with 1,084.8 and 691.8 mg/100g respectively. At 25 days of storage, aspartic acid content in treatment of EO water was increased about 13.9%. Treatment of EO water with 0.5% citron juice was the most effective in respect to the reduction ratio of total amount of essential amino acids.
