Abstract

Changes in quality properties of Kochujang prepared with Paecilomyces japonica powder and extract using different solvents were investigated during 90 days of fermentation at $20^{\circ}C$. Although moisture contents were not significantly different, pH of P. japonica-added Kochujang was lower than that of control group without P. japonica, and decreased with increasing fermentation time. Amino nitrogen content increased up to 60 days of fermentation and decreased slightly after 90 days, with that of P. japonica-added Kochujang showing highest on 30 and 60 days at 179.2 and 282.2 mg%, respectively, higher than control gruup. L, a, and b values decreased in proportion to fermentation period, with P. japonica-added Kochujang, particularly P. japonica powder-added Kochujang, lower than those of control g개up. Sensory evaluation test showed color of control group was 'clear red', whereas that of P. japonica powder-added Kochujang was 'dark reddish brown' and P. japonica extract-added Kochujang was darker than control group; consumer preference for dark color was low, Textures of all samples were 'glossy and smooth', showing high consumer preference. Salt content of P. japonica-added Kochujang was higher than that of control group, with P. japonica extract-added Kochujang higher than that made with powder Hot taste or P. japonica-added Kochujang was weaker, whereas its flavor higher, than control group, with P. japonica powder-added Kochujang showing highest flavor score. Overall preference was higher for P. japonica-added Kochujang than control group, with P. japonica water extract-added Kochujang showing the highest score.
