Physical and Sensory Characteristics of Wet Noodles Prepared by Adding Ge-Geol Radish Powder

게걸무 분말 첨가에 따른 국수의 물리적 및 관능적 특성

  • Published : 2007.06.30


The effects of Ge-Geol radish powder on the physical and sensory properties of wet noodles were investigated by adding 4-16% Ge-Geol radish powder based on the flour source. The Ge-Geol radish powder additions significantly increased the redness of the uncooked and cooked noodles. For the texture profile analysis (TPA) of the wet noodles with added Ge-Geol radish powder, hardness, adhesiveness and resilience decreased, whereas chewiness increased. Changes in the volume and weight of the cooked noodles were not significantly different according to Ge-Geol radish powder concentration, but the turbidities of the soup increased. In sensory test, overall acceptability was significantly higher for the noodles with added Ge-Geol radish powder of concentrations between 4-8%. These samples had similar sensory texture properties as the control and had peculiar hot and cool tastes of the radish. Therefore, adding Ge-Geol radish powder at concentrations below 8% was good for making noodles that maintained a natural texture, and also gave an characteristic radish-like flavor to the noodles.
