This study evaluated the quality characteristics of semi-dried small squid Idiosepius paradoxus treated with grapefruit Citrus paradisi seed extract (GSE) during refrigerated storage for 6 months. The moisture content and water activity decreased significantly in both control and GSE-treated groups with increasing storage time, but there was no significant difference between groups. During storage, the degree of water activity reduction was lower in the GSE-treated group than in the control. The pH change was similar in both groups during storage. The thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) value of the GSE-treated group was lower than that of the control until 4 months of storage, and was subsequently higher than in the control group. The Hunter color L value did not differ significantly during storage between groups, whereas the a and b values decreased significantly (P<0.05) in both groups with increasing storage time. The hardness value of the semi-dried small squid increased with storage time, but there was no statistical difference between GSE treatment and control. There were more viable cells in the control group than the GSE-treated group after 5 months of storage. According to the sensory evaluation, neither the taste, color, odor, nor texture differed statistically during storage between groups, while overall acceptability was significantly lower in the GSE-treated group than the control after 6 months of storage.
