Effect of Adding Freeze-Dried Kimchi Powder on Flavor and Taste of Kimchi Snacks

동결김치분말을 첨가한 스낵류의 맛과 품질에 미치는 영향

  • Published : 2004.12.31


Effects of adding 0, 2, 4, 6, and 8% freeze-dried kimchi powder (FDKP) on kimchi snack quality were examined. Headspace volatile compounds of 4% FDKP snack, receiving highest overall preference in sensory evaluation results, were analyzed, and 26 compounds were identified, including 13 aldehydes, 3 sulfides, a ketone, an acid, a terpene, and 7 other compounds. Pearson correlation analyses were carried out to determine a correlation between the concentration of FDKP and the amount of each volatile compound. Acetaldehyde, propanal, dimethyl sulfide, dimethyl disulfide, acetic acid, and d-limonene showed correlation coefficients above 0.90; selective ion move (SIM) analysis also showed above 0.97 for highly correlated compounds. Results suggest that these compounds can be used as indicators fur kimchi flavor of FDKP snack.
