  • Published : 2003.02.01


Quality and shelf life of the wet noodle made with 1, 3, 5, and 7% (w/w%) Lycii fructus powder were investigated. Increase in L. fructus power concentration increased the initial pasting temperature and cooking loss, while maximum viscosity, temperature at maximum viscosity, weights and volumes of cooking noodles, and textural properties (hardness, cohesiveness, chewiness, springiness) of cooked noodle prepared with composite flour decreased. The sensory evaluation of cooked noodles showed that wet noodles with high quality could be produced by 3% inclusion of L. fructus powder. Bacterial counts of wet noodles made with L. fructus powder were lower than those of the control after storage at $5{\pm}1^{\circ}C$. Shelf life of wet noodles during storage at $5{\pm}1^{\circ}C$ extended as the L. fructus powder concentration increased.
