Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 14, issue 6, 2007, Pages 565~570
Changes in the quality of Hallabong tangor during growth stage and with temperature pre-treatment after harvest were investigated. Soluble solids of Hallabong increased continuously until early December. The acid content of M16A, a variant species of Hallabong, decreased by 1% after October and continued to decrease until the middle of January. After ripening, treatment to reduce the acid content was required. Fruit firmness decreased gradually until November and was maintained at 1000 g-force after this time. Soluble solids and acid content were
. Soluble solids increased in temperature-treated Hallabong with prolonged storage, but acid content did not decrease. Fruit firmness also decreased with storage period, regardless of temperature pre-treatment. Therefore, water management during cultivation, temperature treatment above
after harvest, and checking of the acid content and soluble solids with prolonged storage are recommended in achieving high quality Hallabong.

Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 14, issue 6, 2007, Pages 571~577
Storage characteristics of fresh and thawed sliced raw fish (flounder and rockfish) washed in different solutions (tap water, A; jade water, B; 0.2% chitosan-ascorbate (CA), C; 0.03 ppm ozone water, D; 1.5% vinegar containing jade water, E; 1.5% vinegar and 0.2% CA containing jade water, F) at
were investigated. Changes in pH and acidity of thawed sliced raw fish (TS) during storage were lower than for fresh sliced raw fish (DS). The total microbial content (log cfu/g) of A stored for 3 days in DS was 6.7 (which represented an increase of 1 log cycle compared with day zero), but was 5.50 in B, 3.23 in C, 4.90 in D, 2.40 in E and 1.77 in F, the latter similar to counts at day zero. The degree of microbial contamination of DS and TS followed the order F > E > D > C > B > A in flounder, and F > E > C > D > B > A in rockfish. In general the hardness and chewiness of TS was less than for DS. While the effect of CA on TS texture was not significant in flounder, the effect showed in rockfish. For DS, the appearance in B, C and D was relatively good, as was freshness. Fishiness of flavor was in the order A > B > F > E > D > C. Overall acceptability of flounder and rockfish treated with C was better than treatment with the other washing agents. For TS the appearance of flounder and rockfish were good in B and C. The freshness of flounder and rockfish were in the order of D > C > B > A > E > F and D > C > B > A > E > F, respectively. Fishiness of the flavor of sliced raw fish was lowest in D, which also provided the best overall acceptability.

Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 14, issue 6, 2007, Pages 584~590
This study investigated quality characteristics of Aster scaber (color; firmness; vitamin C, chlorophyll and phenolic contents; and sensory properties) under blanching conditions of
/16 min, and
/6 min, and salt concentrations of 0%, 1% and 2%. The contents of vitamin C, chlorophyll and total phenolic compounds, and firmness decreased by 39.5-60.3%, 26.2-31.5%, 45.6-50.1% and 50.7-51.1%, respectively, after blanching. For these parameters, treatment with 1% salt was 7.1-30.2%, 9.2-12.2%, 35.9-52.0% and 2.7-6.8% relative to the control, and drip water could be prevented by 3.3-23.4%. Results for treatment with 2% salt were (respectively) 22.7-34.1%, 10.4-20.7%, 55.5-80.4% and 13.8-17.3%, and drip water could be prevented by 23.9-27.3%. These results showed that 2% salt treatment had a greater effect on preservation of quality characteristics than 1% treatment and the control. With respect to sensory evaluation, the 2% treatment had lower overall acceptability than the 1% treatment because of the saltier taste. However, the 1% treatment was more acceptable than the control. The optimal blanching condition was found to be
/6 min and 1% salt.

The quality characteristics of semi-dry red pepper (SDRP) (Capsicum annuum L.) were compared with raw and dry red pepper (DRP). Raw red pepper was divided into pieces and the semi-drying treatment involved air-drying at
. The study focused on describing the characteristics of semi-dry red pepper in comparison with dry red pepper. Factors considered were reduced drying period, ASTA color, capsanthin, capsaicinoids, free sugars and vitamin C content. ASTA color, capsanthin, capsaicinoids, free sugars and vitamin C content of SDRP were higher in SDRP than in DRP for 15 g or less water per 100 g. Red pepper powders made using the semi-drying method showed the highest amount of glucose and vitamin C. Capsanthin content in SDRP (151.6155.9 mg/100 g) was significantly higher than for DRP (133.4 mg/100 g). The capsaicinoid content of SDRP was about 13-25% higher than in DRP. The ASTA values (148.7159.3) for SDRP were much higher than for DRP (139.5). The vitamin C and free sugar content of SDRP was 40-76% and 20-40% higher, respectively, than for DRP. and
, respectively, by SDRP compared to DRP.

Process development and standardization are necessary in maintaining high hygienicquality of side dishes. Seasoned perilla leaves are a typical side dish needing process development. In this study the optimum condition for preparing seasoned perilla leaves was investigated experimentally. The best sensory quality was established by response surface methodology. The rinsing and washing method of preparing fresh perilla leaves was optimized to decontaminate the raw material and preserve the product in chilled storage. Washing and rising with 3% salt water reduced the aerobic bacterial count of perilla leaves to 0.55 (log CFU/g), while rinsing reduced the load from 8.08 to 4.27 (log CFU/g). The effect of rinsing method was maintained during subsequent storage of the prepared seasoned leaves at
. There was no significant quality change in the product during chilled storage at
. Soaking in 3% salt water for 1 min, followed by rinsing with tap water, contributed positively to the microbial quality, and is proposed as the optimal preparation method.

Hong, Chun-Suk ; Yoon, Sung-Ran ; Lee, Gee-Dong ; Kim, Mi-Ok ; Kim, Hyun-Ku ; Kwon, Joong-Ho ;
Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 14, issue 6, 2007, Pages 605~610
The quality of guava (Psidium guajava L.) leaves processed using different methods, such as fermentation, steaming, and roasting were investigated. The total phenolics content was highest in the roasted guava leaves. While tyrosinase inhibition and electron donating abilities were highest in steamed guava leaves. The overall palatability showed higher scores in both fermented and steamed guava leaves compared to roasted ones. Upon blanching and steaming of guava leaves, the total phenolics content, tyrosinase inhibition ability, and electron donating ability decreased as the treatment time increased. The overall quality properties were significantly higher in steamed than the blanched samples. The sensory scores, however, were low mainly due to the astringent taste of guava leaves. Thus, it was found that the removal or masking of the astringent taste of guava leaves is of primary concern for their further use.

Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 14, issue 6, 2007, Pages 611~616
This study analyzed the major chemical components of raw and dried persimmons (Diospyros kaki Thunb.). Raw and dried persimmons contained (respectively) 85.52% and 47.36% moisture, 0.10% and 0.13% crude fat, 0.30% and 1.89% crude protein, and 0.56% and 2.0% crude fiber. The main free sugar components in both raw and dried persimmons were glucose and fructose. Seventeen amino acids were identified in the dried persimmons, amongst which the dominant ones were aspartic acid, glutamic acid, histidine and arginine. The total amino acid content of raw and dried persimmons was 3,130.76 ppm and 12,849.33 ppm, respectively. The major fatty acids in total lipids were palmitic acid, palmitoleic acid and linolenic acid in both raw and dried persimmons. The raw persimmons had 23.22% palmitoleic acid and 32.70% linolenic acid, suggesting that they have a high ratio of unsaturated fatty acids. The mineral content of both raw and dried persimmons was Na < Fe < Ca < P < K.

The effects of the ratio of 45% alcohol and Maesil(Prumus mume) (1:1, 1:2, 1:3, w/v) on quality changes of Maesil liqueur during leaching and ripening for 5 months were examined. Total acidity increased with an increase ratio of Maesil and leaching and ripening periods. The pH increased as increase ratio of alcohol. The color of liqueur became dark as an increase ratio of Maesil and leaching and ripening periods. The contents of alcohol after leaching and ripening for 2 months were 24.3%(1:1), 32.2%(1:2), and 36.0%(1:3), respectively and decreased as an increase the ratio of Maesil. The contents of reducing sugar and polyphenol in the liqueur increased with an increase ratio of Maesil and leaching and ripening periods. The major components of free sugar in the liqueur were fructose, glucose, sucrose and maltose but sucrose and maltose did not detect regardless the ratio of Maesil after leaching and ripening for 2 months. The major components of organic acid in the liqueur were citric, lactic, malic, and acetic acids. The total amount of organic acid increased as an increase the ratio of Maesil but the changes of individual organic acid in the liqueur contained different ratio of Maesil showed the different tendency each other.

Hur, Sang-Sun ;
Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 14, issue 6, 2007, Pages 650~654
Ginseng sikhye is a unique beverage containing medicinal ingredients and having the unique flavor of ginseng. In this study, changes in the sugar composition of ginseng sikhye were investigated during the saccharification process. The concentration of ginseng sikhye was varied and the sugar content analyzed during the process. The amount of ginseng powder was varied from 3% to 12% in a mixture of malt (20 g), steamed rice (400 g) and 0.2 mL
-amylase (Teramyl). With increasing time and temperature during the saccharification process, the sugar content in the ginseng sikhy eincreased, reaching levels similar to commercial sikhye. However, based on analysis of free sugars, the maltose content in ginseng sikhye was over 4.3%, which was higher than for commercial sikhye. Therefore, ginseng sikhye shows excellent marketability quality.

Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 14, issue 6, 2007, Pages 655~661
The biological activities of methanol extracts of Angelica gigas Nakai, such as antioxidation, anticancer and immuno-activity, were investigated in relation to development of functional foods. Anti-oxidation activity in the methanol extracts were assessed by hydrogen donating activity, reducing power and hydroxyl radical scavenging activity. Activities were dose-dependent over concentrations of 0.1, 0.5 and 1 mg/mL, with thehydrogen donating activity being over 50% at 1 mg/mL concentration. The methanol extracts inhibited the proliferation of SW480 cells in a dose-dependent manner, and chromatin condensation and apoptotic bodies were observed by fluorescence microcopy in the cells treated with the extracts for 24 hr. Caspase-3 activity was also increased in a dose-dependent manner in cells treated with the extracts relative to control cells. The extracts did not induce the proliferation of mouse spleen cells or NO production in macrophage cells (RAW 264.7). These results show that the methanol extract had slight anti-oxidative activity and did not increase immuno-activity, but inhibited proliferation of SW480 through apoptosis via a caspase dependent pathway.

Studies have shown that onions exhibit a wide variety of health-promoting properties. The health benefits by the onion have been attributed to its ability to scavenge free radicals, to reduce blood lipids, to lower blood pressure, and to inhibit platelet aggregation. This study was performed to investigate whether onion extract supplementation would affect the blood markers of ethanol-induced fatty liver in rats. Initially, male Sprague-Dawley rats were housed singly in a room of controlled temperature and lighting and had free access to a nutritionally adequate AIN-93G and deionized water. The rats were trained for meal feeding to prevent a decline in food intake, as inevitably observed following an ethanol feeding. After the training period, rats were weight-matched and assigned to the following three groups: 1) a control group, fed the AIN-93G diet alone (control); 2) an ethanol group, fed the AIN-93G diet with ethanol at 4 g/day/kg body weight (ethanol); and 3) an onion group, fed the AIN-93G diet with ethanol plus supplemental freeze-dried onion powder at 500 mg/day/rat (ethanol + onion). All three group were meal-fed 7.0 g of their respective diets at 0900 h and 7.5 g at 1600 h for 28 days. At 0, 2, and 4 wk, blood was collected via the orbital sinus and organs were collected following overnight food deprivation. Both control and experimental groups continually gained weight throughout the study. No significant differences in the weights of the liver, kidneys, heart, spleen, and testis were observed. However, the serum level of triglycerides was significantly increased by ethanol but significantly decreased by onion extract. The activities of serum glutamate oxaloacetate transaminase (GOT), glutamate pyruvate transaminase (GPT) at 4 wk were significantly increased by ethanol feeding but were significantly decreased by onion supplementation. However, no differences among groups were observed in the serum levels of alkaline phosphatase, gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase, bilirubin, and protein. These results provide that onion extract favorably affect alcoholic fatty liver by decreasing the serum concentration of triglyceride and the activities of GOT and GPT.

Shin, Kyung-Ok ; Oh, Seung-Hee ; Kim, Sood-Dong ;
Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 14, issue 6, 2007, Pages 669~675
Quality characteristics of Kwamaegi (semi-dried saury) prepared by treatment of chitosan-ascorbate (CA) and vacuum drying at
(VDK), and the effect of the Kwamaegi on serum lipid profiles and anti-oxidation-related enzyme activity in rats fed high fat diets were investigated. The preparation periods were
hr in VDK, while naturally dried Kwamaegi (NDK) took 360480 hr. Total microbe contents of VDK and NDK were
and 8.2 log CFU/g, respectively. There was no significant difference in amino-nitrogen content. Compared with NDK, the acid and peroxide value, and fishy flavor of VDK40 (dried at
) were significantly lower, and the texture, color and overall acceptability were higher. In animal experiments, weight gain, content of LDL-cholesterol and lipid peroxide, activities of total (T) and O type (O) xanthine oxidase, and the O/T ratio (%) were significantly lower in the VDK40 diet group than in the NDK diet group. The content of HDL-cholesterol in the VDK40 diet group was higher than in the NDK diet group. These results suggest that preparing CA-treated Kwamaegi with vacuum-drying at
can be applied throughout the year, and may shorten preparation time and improve its microbiological safety and nutritional values.

Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 14, issue 6, 2007, Pages 681~687
Biological properties of DongChongXiaCao extracts and culture supernatants were evaluated using DPPH and FRAP (antioxidants), Raw 264.7 (NO production), B16-F1 cells (cell migration activity) and HUVECs (angiogenesis activity). We found that antioxidant activity was higher in mycelium culture supernatants than in mycelial extracts. Mycelial extracts and culture supernatants inhibited or increased cyclooxygenase-2 transcription activity and NO production. Various extracts and culture supernatants inhibited B16 cell migration and motility, and inhibited HUVEC tube formation. These findings indicate that DongChongXiaCao extracts and products of mycelium could be a useful biological resource for anti-oxidant and anti-cancer purposes.

The effects of pectinase treatment and other processing conditions on juice yield from Rubus coreanus, and physicochemical changes during alcohol fermentation, were investigated. The yield from R. coreanus increased by 8.60% with Pectinex 100L treatment (500 ppm, 30 min) compared to a control group. The soluble solid content in the group fermented at
by addition of sucrose (24B-group), and the group fermented at
by addition of 16% sucrose after 4 days of fermentation (8B-group) decreased to
after 10 days of fermentation, respectively, and no significant differences were observed with Pectinex 100L treatment. Initial titratable acidity in the enzyme treatment was slightly higher (
) than for the control group (1.02%). The initial
values of R. coreanus juice decreased with enzyme treatment, and the
value increased, but the color difference (
) between the control and enzyme treatment gradually decreased with fermentation time. The ethanol contents in the 24B-group and the 8B-group were
, respectively, after 10 days of fermentation. The methanol contents in the enzyme treatment and the control were
mg/mL, respectively, and within standard regulations (1 mg/mL).

Kang, Seong-Koo ; Shon, Mi-Yae ;
Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 14, issue 6, 2007, Pages 709~715
Korean green tea has been claimed to have health-promoting effects, which may be related to the antioxidant activity in vitro. Korean green teas (Woojeon, WJ ; Sejak, SJ ; Jungjak, JJ ; Daejak, DJ) were subjected to different harvested times and yet little research has examined their bioactive compounds. To assess the effect of this different harvested times on nutritional and health-related properties such as Korean green tea polyphenols, flavonoids, theanine and free amino acids, antioxidant activities and radical scavenging activities were determined. Total polyphenols in JJ (37.16 mg/g) was higher than in other products (WJ, 19.55 ; SJ 24.65 ; DJ, 23.28 mg/g). Contents of flavonol and flavone glycosides were the highest at DJ (350.83 mg%) as compared to WJ (220.81), SJ (256.88) and JJ (270.36 mg%). Contents of theanine and total free amino acids were the highest at WJ (14.11, 23.62 mg/g, respectively), but decreased thereafter. Antioxidant activities were higher in JJ and DJ, using the linoleic acid peroxidation, DPPH and ABTS free radical-scavenging activities. However, WJ and SJ had less active antioxidant activity and free radical-scavenging activity. Reducing powers were increased depend on the concentration of extracts. Antioxidant activity and free radical-scavenging activity of JJ and DJ seemed to relate with total polyphenol and flavonoid contents.

This study was conducted to obtain the basic data on the development of resources of wild edible greens, and the industrialization of the marketing of fresh wild vegetables. We have also investigated the distributing factors at five-day traditional markets (Taebaek, Hongcheon and Hoengseong) in Gangwon district, and in Jeonnam district (Naju, Damyang and Jangseong), in May and June 2007. At each market, there were 34 to 49 diverse shops selling fresh wild vegetables except at Naju, where there were 22 shops. Between 27 to 29 kinds of fresh wild vegetable were on sale at the traditional markets in Gangwon district, and 15 to 19 kinds were on sale along with many horticultural plants in Jeonnam district. Fresh wild vegetables including Aster scaber, Petasites japonicus, Pteridium aquilinum var. latussculum, Malva verticillata, leaves of Perilla frutescens, Lactuca sativa, leaves of Capsicum annuum, and Oenanthe javanica were on sale in the markets in both districts. Those selling fresh wild vegetables were typically over 51 years of age (88%), and among these over 66.4% were over 61 years old. Less than 6 kinds of fresh wild vegetable accounted for over 72.1% of the vegetables sold. Edible wild greens were mainly packed in vinyl bags (over 77%).

Extracting and analytical conditions of curcumin, and removal of bitterness substance from Curcuma longa L. were investigated. Absorption maxima was shown to be 424 nm at methanol solvent. Optimal conditions for analysis of curcumin was Zorbax eclipse
column ; mobile phase, 75% MeOH ; flow rate, 0.8 mL/min ; wave length, UV 424 nm. Curcumin component was analyzed to be the highest content in methanol extract. In all samples, extraction yield by heating was shown to be effective as compared to room temperature. Curcumin contents of methanol and ethanol extracts in extraction of room temperature were 14.4 and 14.2 times higher than that of water extract, respectively. Two hot solvent extracts has a high curcumin content being 150 mg% as compared to room temperature. Extracting time was an effective condition when it was extracted for 60 minutes for elevating the curcumin content of water and methanol extracts. Bitter substance (BS) was markedly decreased in water extract by heat treatment of above
. BS was weak in
treatment than in room temperature and it was however strong in
treatment. RT and
heat treatment were not different in BS intensity.
