Ascorbic acid content of apple packed with LDPE, CE, EPS was higher than that of control. Titratable acidity and total soluble solid content of control were changed 40% and 10%, but the EPS were changed 27% and 4%, respectively. Overall appearances of ‘Fuji’apple packed with LDPE, CE and EPS were better than that of control.
Changes of Quality in Dried Omija (Schizandra chinensis Baillon During Storage)
Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 8, issue 4, 2001, Pages 351~355
This study was carried out to examine the of quality on the dried Omija according to its package materials and storage plates. The changes of moisture contents, anthocyanin content, molds damage rates, and color values were measured during storage. In the sealing up by the P.E file, the moisture contents of the dried Omija had just a little differences among the storage places, but in the gauze bag remarkably as the storage period goes on, especially in this case, 8 months later since the storage in the cool chamber, the damage rates of the dried Omija by the mold was 9.0%, twice as much as in the indoor bag packaging it was increasand after 10 months, that was lather high in the indoor and warehouse. The anthocyanin content of the dried Omija after the storage of 10 months was the highest at 0.05mm black P.E film package in the cool chamber, which was 55.7 mg/100g, but in the indoor and warehouse 39.7, 45.0mg/100g, respectively. These results show thats the storage conditions had an important effect on the quality of the dried Omija during the long-term storage.

Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 8, issue 4, 2001, Pages 356~361
This study was conducted to improve the storability of onion bulbs by assembly simple house storage and the reduce the rotteness caused by field open storage. Allium cepa cv. Changnyungdeago, late strain was used for the test at the storage condition of natural ventilation of levels 2, forced ventilation of levels 2, field open storage and 75mm, 100mm, and 125mm ventilating holes. Mean tamperature and relative humidity were not significantly different by ventilation conditions. Mean temperature was lower in forced ventilation than that of in natural ventilation and non-ventilation, and relative humidity was a little higher in ventilation treatment than those of the others. Weight loss of onion bulbs were 2.5%, 2.9%, 3%, 4.3% in field open storage, non ventilation, natural ventilation of levels 2 and forced ventilation of levels 2 respectively. Rotting rate in natural ventilation of levels 2 and farced ventilation of levels 2 were 27.7% and 25.4% respectively but 34.6% and 37.8% in non ventilation and field open storage. Therefore, the treatment of ventilation reduced the rotteness of storage onion bulbs. The smaller the size of a ventilating hole, the lower mean temperature was maintained. The relative humidity was some high in July, but didn’t showed significantly difference in August and September. With small size of a ventilating hole, the strong wind velocity was obtained, and wind velocity by position was weaker in the middle part than both ends. Rutting rates in 75㎜, 100㎜, and 125㎜ ventilating holes were 17.9%, 15.3% and 14.1% respectively.

Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 8, issue 4, 2001, Pages 434~441
The purpose of this research is the establishment of optimal processing and the quality improvement of confectionary analysis of the damaged starch content of flour. I studied the rheological and bread making properties of the dough containing different damaged starch content. I examined rheological and physico- chemical characteristic farinograph, extensograph and amylograph with DNS, CWRS and SW containing 6.5%, 8.2%, 9.0%, 9.0% and 10.5% of damaged starch. And I measured the hardness and specific volume and performed the functional survey by rheometer for quality control. In the amylogram, at the damaged starch content 9.5% at such the maximum viscosity was 900 B.U. the volume of bread fermention tolerance were increased. In addition, the extensegram after 135 min showed that maximum resistance of the dough were 570 B.U at the damaged starch contents of 9.5% and the bread had homogeneous air cells and internal structures at the damaged starch contents of 9.5% at which the area(A), resistance(R) and R/E value of the dough were highest.
Changes in the Constituents of Citrus Juice by Ultrafiltration
Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 8, issue 4, 2001, Pages 442~448
The citrus juice obtained from Jeju mandarines, Citru unshiu, was filtered to remove 20% of its original volume through the hollow fiber ultrafiltration systems equipped with various pore sizes of membranes. As the results of ultrafiltration, the contents of total acids, ascorbic acid, ascorbic acid, free sugars and neohesperidin in retentate showed the tendencies of gradual decreases with the increase of membrane pore sizes from 10K to 100K daltons, but tendencies were inverted when the membrane with 500k was used. The changes of color, soluble solids, total nitrogen, amino-nitrogen, naringin and hesperidin were not consistent with the membrane pore size. Considering all the data obtained using various pen sizes of membranes, the filtration system with NMWC 500K daltons was the most effective to produce citrus juices with hither quality.
Changes in Chemical Components of Black Bean Chungkugjang Added wish Kiwi and Radish during Fermentation
Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 8, issue 4, 2001, Pages 449~455
Changes in pH, titratable acidity, reducing sugar, nitrogen compound and mineral of black bean chungkugjang(BBC)added with kiwi and radish during fermentation were investigated. During fermentation of BBC, pH was increased, while titratable acidity was decreased. The changes in pH and titratable acidity of all chungkugjangs other than BBC were very rapid after 24 hrs of fermentation. Reducing sugar content was highest in BBC and was increased by 24 hrs of fermentation and decreased thereafter. Amino-type nitrogen increased rapidly after 24 hrs of fermentation. The addition of kiwi and radish increased the content of amino-type nitrogen in BBC by enhancing proteolysis of black bean, being as much as in soybean chungkugjang. At 72 hrs of fermentation BBC was found to be lower in ammonia type nitrogen than soybean chungkugjang. Mineral content, in general, was higher in BBC than in soybean chungkugjang, showing highest in potassium followed by phosphorus, magnesium and calcium.
Carotenoids pigment extraction from a wasted persimmon peel
Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 8, issue 4, 2001, Pages 456~461
To develop the use of natural pigment for food, carotenoids from wasted persimmon peel were extracted with seven organic solvents. Among the solvents, acetone was a high yielding solvent of carotenoids. Extraction trends depending on process variables(temperature, time, solvent ratio to persimmon peel) were explained through response surface which was made by central composite experimental design. Carotenoid contents were increased with the extraction time and solvent ratio but it decreaed in the higher experimental design. Carotenoid contents were increased with the extraction time and solvent ratio but it decreased in the higher extraction temperature. The optimum conditions of extraction process variables were predicted as 29
, 93min. at fixed solvent ratio(1:27).

Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 8, issue 4, 2001, Pages 469~474
Chemical composition of the water extract of three different kinds of bamboos was investigated to access nutritive sources. Bamboo stalks and leaves were extracted massively and concentrated to 3°Brix, and crude protein and fat contents of the extracts were respectively 0.56∼0.69% and 0.28∼0.58%. Main mineral contents of the extracts were K, P and Mg in order, and those were the highest in Wangdae stalks. In free sugar analysis of the extracts, Maengjongjuk stalks contained 1.1% sucrose, Somdae stalks contained 0.51% fructose and Wangdae stalks contained 0.6% glucose as the highest level. Organic acid contents of the extracts showed high level in acetic and malic acid which were 54.0 and 44.2mg% in extracts of Wangdae stalks respectively. Among amino acids, aspartic acid was contained the highest level in stalk extracts, and their concentrations were 42.2, 39.9 and 34.6mg% in Wangdae, Somdae and Maengjongjuk respectively. In leaf extracts, glutamic acid concentrations were higher than the other amino acids, and those were 19.3, 18.5 and 15.7mg% in Maengjongjuk, Wangdae and Somdae, respectively.
Functional Properties and Antimicrobial Activity of Bamboo(Phyllostachys sp.) Extracts
Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 8, issue 4, 2001, Pages 475~480
Yields of bamboo extracts were 1.0∼1.5% in stalks and 3.1∼3.2% (w/w) in leaves. Electron donating ability of extracts from stalks was 62% in Maengjongjuk, 55% in Somdae and 52% in Wangdae, while that of leaf extracts showed very low level. On the contrary, nitrite-scavenging activity was higher in leaf extracts than stalk extracts, and the activity was 63, 57 and 55% in leaf extracts of Maengjongjuk, Wangdae and Somdae, respectively. Antimicrobial activity was examined against 7 major strains which cause food poisoning, and extracts of bamboo stalks showed somewhat activity, while leaf extracts showed merely or no activity according to strains. But all extracts showed relatively strong antimicrobial activity against Staphylococcus aureus and Vibrio parahaemolyticus, and extracts of Somdae stalks and Maengjongjuk leaves showed antimicrobial antimicrobial activity against those strains on 100

Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 8, issue 4, 2001, Pages 481~487
Grifola umbellatus was extracted using methanol, and the extract was further fractionated by water and ethyl acetate. Assay of each fraction with MTT [3-(4, 5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2, 5-diphenyltetrazolium-bromide] revealed significant cytotoxicity effect of the methanol extract of Grifola umbellatus against human gastric cancer cell but not normal human lymphocytes. The methanol extract showed the highest antioxidant activity as well. Antimicrobial activity of Grifola umbellants against Helicobacter pylori was higher in method extract than in other fractions. Grifola umbellatus had a significant inhibitory effect on Helicobacter pylori reducing both its growth and urease activity. These results show that the methanol extract of Grifola umbellatus possesses therapeutic potential on gastric diseases.
