Abstract

Physicochemical properties of freeze-dried upper and middle parts of Korean raw anther were investigated and analyzed. Moisture contents of upper part and middles part were 51.7 and 63.6%, respectively. Contents of crude protein, crude fat, crude ash, and carbohydrates of upper part of antler were 66.91, 3.52, 22.70, and 6.87%, respectively. Whereas those of middle part were 52.64, 2.50, 34.54, and 6.07, respectively. Phosphorous content was the highest in both upper (2562.0 mg%) and middle (2536.0 mg%) parts. Glycine (7597.9 mg%) and glutamic acid (5769.4 mg%) were major amino acids in upper part, glycine (9612.0 mg%) and proline (5906.3 mg%) in middle part were the major amino acids. Free sugars including fructose, glucose, sucrose, and maltose were not detected. Palmitic acid (upper part 30.83%, middle part 32.23%) was the major fatty acid in crude fat of both upper and middle parts. Vitamin A (retinol) contents of upper and middle parts were 16.40 and 12.32 IU/100 g, respectively. Vitamin C was not detected. Upper part of antler showed the highest redness (8.18), whereas middle part showed the highest lightness (71.72) and yellowness (8.13). The color difference $({\Delta}E\;27.11)$ between upper part and middle part was distinguished remarkably.
