Journal of the Korean Society of Food Culture, volume 13, issue 1, 1998, Pages 9~17
The objective of this study is to provide a fundamental data to improve meals of the college foodservice operations serving more than 300 meals per day through evaluating changes in; total vitamin C contests, water contents, and pH, in the process of handling such foods as soybean sprout cooked and of fresh vegetable salads. This study, also, tried to identify nutrition reduction, step by step, to minimize nutrition loss. 1. In handing COOKED SOYBEAN SPROUTS, total vitamin C contents were higher after wash(1.54%mg%) than other cooking methods adopted in university meals(1.08mg%), however, total vitamin C contents was significantly lost during boiling step. 2. Significant loss of total vitamin C and water content in the FRESH VEGITABLE SALADS was detected in the process of washing and cutting vegitables. Especially,'cabbage' lost 20% of total vitamin C in the process of 'soaking in water', which was one of preparation process 3. Significant loss of vitamin C was observed after 6 hours of HOLDINC AFTER COOKING but it can be reduced through holding under lower temparature, in case of soybean sprouts and fresh vegitable salads. pH became acidic as holding time expanded. WATER CONTENT of cooked soybean sprouts decreased up to 4 hours holding time, however, it increased when we checked at after 6 hours' of holding time. Water content continuously decreased up to 6 hours of holding time in case of FRESH VESITABLE SALADS with the statistically significance level.

This study was carreid out to investigate present comsuming behavior and consumer preference of SEAFOODS as a stuff in KIMCHI making, adopting a questionaire survey for 500 housewives living in Korea except Chejudo Province. Frequency distribution and percentage of preferences were measured. Out of total housewives responded, 65.5% consider, THEY SHOULD EAT KIMCHI DAILY. Which conforms, kimchi is still an important side dish at most of the households On the other hand, some others consider EATING KIMCHI EVERY DAY is not neccesary(6.0%) or dislike it(0.5%). This result might suggest that kimchi may or may not be an essential sidedish for every households in the future. 96.3% of Housewives used fermented salited fish and 45% used seafoods as a staffing in making kimchi. Major reasons for adding seafoods in kimchi were: it improves teste and flavor(79.5%) and nutritional value(54.2%). Reasons for rejecting seafoods as a stuffing in making kimchi were: it worsens taste and flavor(13.5%), hygenic treatments of seafoods are below the necessary level(13.5%) and shelf life become shorter(12.8%), respectively. Among the fermented salted sauces, 84.9% and 69.1% of house wives responded as anchovy and shrimp sause were most favorite(base) material in Kimchi making, respectively. Out of total seafoods utilized in making kimchi,76.4%, 54.7% and 31.4% of housewives responded as oyster, small shrimp and sea-staghorn as the favorite seafoods in Kimchi making(raw material). Majority of housewives responded to develop it's taste and flavor to meet that of international one(86.5%) and that hygienic level(treatments) should be upgraded(50.9%).

Consumption of edible oil at food service institutions in Inchon was surveyed to provide basic data for continuous education of dietitians. Manufacturing industry was the major food service institution(78.8%) in Inchon followed by schools, hospitals and social welfare service centers. Most dietitians were at the age of twenties and college graduates with professional careers of 1-5 years. Oil was purchased on the basis of its quality within 1-3% of total food costs four times a month. Proper frying temperature was determined by dropping salt or food coating materials into the oil. Soybean oil was the most frequently used and commercial frying mix powder and flour and eggs in water were the most common food coating materials. Fish and commercial frozen foods were the most frequently used materials for frying. Fried foods were stored with covers in a basket and consumed within 30 minutes after cooking. Frying oils were used one more time after filtering and color was the index for determination of re-use.

Distribution structure is the link between a society's needs and its industrial responses. A change in distribution structure brings about a consumption structure which may results in considerable changes in lifestyle including food habits. The purpose of this study was to evaluate a effect of change of distribution structure on the food purchase. The survey was carried from May to June, 1997 by way of questionnaire of 407 housewives, aged 23-64 years, in Seoul and the capital area. The questionaire consists of sociodemographic characteristics of the subjects and distribution channel, information route of food selection, acknowledgement and coefficient of utilization of new distribution channel, mainly used distribution channel in food purchase, important factors in food selection, and food purchasing behavior. Their data were statistically analyzed based on frequency, mean, and
. The major findings of this study were as follows; 1) Most frequently used distribution channels in food purchase were supermarket(38.53%), department store(15.23%), discount store(14.05%), a conventional retail market(13.87%), membership wholesale club(8.07%), and a conventional wholesale market(6.53%). 2) The new distribution channels that subjects have ever used were discount store(75.4% of the subject), membership wholesale club(63%), mail order house(32%), outlet store(29.4%), home shopping(10.3%). 3) Compared to the subject living far from the new distribution channel, the subject living close to the new distribution channel was higher in frequency of new distribution channel utilization. These observations suggest that change of the distribution structure promotes the change of the food purchasing behavior.

Journal of the Korean Society of Food Culture, volume 13, issue 1, 1998, Pages 47~58
Although it is increasing the number of day-care centers in Korea, but the quality of food and nutrition service are not increased sufficiently. The purpose of this study was to investigate the current practices of food and nutrition service in day-care centers. Questionnaire were sent to the directors of 750 day-care centers and 253 returned the complete answers. Staffing structure revealed that only 13% of the facilities had a dietitian. And compared with centers without a dietitian, there were more centers having nutritional standards, using facilities for service, and having long-term planning of meals in centers with a dietitian. In the using of foodservice budget, the centers having dietitian consumed more money for subsidiary dishes than for the staples. All centers needed increment of supplementation for the cost of foodservice and for hiring a dietitian. To improve the quality of food and nutrition services in day-care center, foodservice practices have to be conducted by professional personnel and to confirm the standard of service and to inspect the management of food and nutritional service.

In order to find causes of the difference in taste between Korean and Japanese soybean paste, comparian was made on the free amino acids composition in soybean paste in those two countries. It was found that the free amino acid composition of commercial soybean paste made in Korea was analogous to homemade soybean paste, and the commercial soybean paste made in Japan, was analogous to homemade soybean paste. And there was a similarity on the point that the glutamic acid content was the highest of all free amino acids content in both Korean and Japanese soybean pastes. There was a difference in the mean total free amino acids content between Korean and Japanese soybean paste. The mean ratio of the glutamic acid content to total free amino acid content in Korean and Japanese soybean paste was on the range of
, respectively. These results suggest that glutamic acid determines taste in Korean and Japanese soybean paste.

Journal of the Korean Society of Food Culture, volume 13, issue 1, 1998, Pages 65~72
This study was undertaken to assess eating habits of 230 rural elementary school students living in ChunNam province. Anthropometric data showed that their mean height of girl students was significantly higher than that of boy students. Irregular eating pattern of girl students was noted. There was a significant difference in concerning on weight control between girls and boys. Girls especially view themselves as too obese even though their weight was in normal range and they were more concerned on weight control due to appearance. Nutrition education at school was an important factor ruling out peaky eating habits in participants. More effective nutrition education might be suggested to form a good eating habit which result in maintenance of ideal weight and promote health for rural elementary school students.
