An Exploration of Well-being-oriented Consumers' Consciousness toward Sustainability : A Qualitative Research
Kim, Young-Hun ;
Journal of the Korean Society of Food Culture, volume 22, issue 5, 2007, Pages 521~527
Using a qualitative method, this paper described briefly the well-being-oriented consumers consciousness toward sustainability concept. The paper identified the major obstacles facing well-being society as evidenced by consumers own experiences for consuming products which are meet the necessity for environmental preservation. Over seventy percent of respondents who had a experience consuming the sustainable products said that they consumed it for themselves and their family's health of all things. Beside their interests about health, they made mention of the safety of sustainable products, high quality of sustainable products, to preserve our environment, confidence in sustainable products, encouragement from others, and curiosity for sustainable products. The respondents who did not consume the sustainable products argued that high price of sustainable products, genuineness of sustainable products, lack of information about sustainable products, unconcern about sustainable products, and difficulty to access to sustainable products were not allowed them from consuming the sustainable products.

Journal of the Korean Society of Food Culture, volume 22, issue 5, 2007, Pages 582~589
The purpose of this study was to measure the causal relationships among affective belief, environmental belief, subjective norm, attitude and meat consumption behavior. A total of 318 questionnaires were completed. Structural equation model was used to measure the causal relationships among the constructs. Results of the study demonstrated that the structural analysis result for the data also indicated excellent model fit. The effects of affective belief, environmental belief and subjective norm on attitude were statistically significant. The effects of affective belief, environmental belief and subjective norm on meat consumption were statistically significant. As expected, attitude had a significant effects on behavioral intention. Moreover, attitude played a mediating role in the relationship between affective belief and meat consumption, environmental belief and meat consumption, subjective norm and meat consumption. Consumption played a mediating role in the relationship between attitude and behavioral intention. In conclusion, based on structural analysis, a model was proposed of interrelations among affective belief, environmental belief, subjective norm, attitude, meat consumption and intention. It should be noted that the original model was modified and should, preferably, be validated in future research. Other variables may be incorporated to form models that consist of new antecedent and consequence pairs.

Journal of the Korean Society of Food Culture, volume 22, issue 5, 2007, Pages 597~602
For the hotel industry, the situations having difficulties in management are becoming we planed by the rises of the cost and labor costs, the imbalance between supply and demand, stiffening competitions between the hotels. Therefore, there has been a plan for a great change to attract customers, escaping from the existing form of management in order to secure competitive powers in the food and beverage field. For that purpose, we plan to investigate into the preference of buffet restaurants in ten 5star hotels in Seoul. By the analysis, we also plan to present the menu concepts that stand out and are preferred by the customers in managing semi-buffet restaurants. Therefore, the linear and planar coordinate values of the H Hotels and I Hotels came out both positive(+) as results of a similarity analysis using MOS, we can predict that they would be positioning on the same dimension. Furthermore we can predict that the menu of antipasto, sushi, sashimi and desserts would be positioning on the same dimension as a result of analysis of the most preferred menu by customers for each station in managing a semi-buffet restaurant. Based on these results, there must be continuous supervision over the menu of buffet restaurants.

Kim, Duk-Sook ; Lee, Keun-Bo ;
Journal of the Korean Society of Food Culture, volume 22, issue 5, 2007, Pages 603~608
Optimal winterizing condition of com oil was cooling temperature of bleached oil from
. Then, filtering it after keeping
by lowering the temperature gradually with treating perlite of 0.3%(w/w) amount about bleached oil and stirring. We could measure that triglyceride(TG) that extracted from lipid components from spent perlite(SP) obtained through filtration after winterizing by SACC method is major causing materials of clouding in com oil. The result of separating TG fraction by agentation TLC was that it classified into 4 kinds -U3, SU2, S2U, S3 type and the most were U3 type. From this, it's easy to identify cause of clouding in com oil is TG fraction and most of them form wax materials that can observed. The results were they kept clear appearance at
generally during 39.6 to 96.5 hours, especially the result of A sample that had the lowest temperature condition while they have some difference by condition of treating temperature.

Kim, Hae-Young ;
Journal of the Korean Society of Food Culture, volume 22, issue 5, 2007, Pages 609~614
Quality characteristics of dasik were studied with varied the levels of rice grain particle size and green tea powder and compared them with commercially sold dasik. Among the samples with the same number of grinding times, the sample groups with the higher amount of green tea showed significantly the less mosture content(p<0.05). Hardness was higher in the samples containing higher amount of green tea among the ones with the same grain size (p<0.05). The M13G0.5 was evaluated to have the highest savory aroma with significance (p<0.05), and C1 to have the highest sweetness by sensory analysis. The developed dasik samples with lower rice grain particle size had significantly lower adhesiveness, chewiness, gumminess, and cohesiveness compared to those of commercial sample groups. In sensory tests, the compared groups showed significantly the higher savory aroma and flavor and very lower hardness when compared to those of commercial sample groups. With the results above, dasik with with varied the levels of rice grain particle size and green tea powder were developed with improved qualities compared to those of commercially sold dasik.

Journal of the Korean Society of Food Culture, volume 22, issue 5, 2007, Pages 615~620
Physicochemical and sensory characteristics of the green tea dasik varying the added value of oligosaccharide were investigated and the products were surveyed by elementary school students regarding the acceptability. Protein and ash contents were significantly higher and fat contents were significanlty lower in the samples with oligosaccharides compared to those in commercial ones(p<0.05). Commercial samples had significantly higher values in all of the textural characteristics using textural analyzer compared to those of the developed dasik sample groups. In analytical sensory evaluation, varying the amount of oligosaccharide, commercial samples had significantly higher values of sweetness, hardness, and cohesiveness and lower values of savory aroma and falvor compared to those of developed dasik(p<0.05). Savory aroma and flavor were highly negatively correlated with textural hardness, springiness, chewiness, gumminess, and cohesiveness(p<0.01), while sensory sweetness and hardness were significantly positively correlated with textural springiness(p<0.05), chewiness, gumminess, and cohesiveness(p<0.01). When surveying elementary school students regarding the acceptability of green tea dasik and commercial samples, green tea dasik 2 was the most preferred with significance in color. Regarding aroma, green tea dasik 1 received the highest acceptability (p<0.05). In the flavor, both dasik 1 and 2 received higher score than those of the commercial dasik. In overall acceptability, both green tea dasik 1 and 2 were preferred to the commercially sold ones with significance(p<0.05).

Journal of the Korean Society of Food Culture, volume 22, issue 5, 2007, Pages 621~632
The purposes of this study were as follows. First is to compare the importance of operational factors to determine types of school breakfast program, and second is to do the preference analysis of operation-related people depending on the attributes and levels of the operation of school breakfast program. The questionnaires developed for this study were distributed to 134 school dietitians, 114 school foodservice officials at the educational board, 68 staff members of foodservice contractors and 493 parents. Statistical data analyses were performed using SPSS/WIN 12.0 for descriptive statistics and conjoint analysis. The conjoint design was applied to evaluate the hypothetical foodservice types. According to the analysis on the attributes and levels of the school breakfast operation, the relative importance of each attribute was as followsprice (36.30%), menu (29.60%), foodservice staff (22.54%), serving type (11.55%) to school dietitians, price (34.99%), menu (28.15%), foodservice staff (23.52%), serving type (13.35%) to school foodservice officials at the educational board, menu (30.55%), price (30.24%), foodservice staff (28.75%), serving type (10.47%) to staff members of foodservice contractors and price (36.34%), menu (29.73%), foodservice staff (21.01%), serving type (12.92%) to parents. The results of the conjoint analysis indicated that the school dietitians and school foodservice officials at the educational board preferred the school breakfast operation program with 3 traditional menus and 2 convenience menus per 5 day,
foodservice staff, with a price range of
, and tray serving. Staff members of foodservice contractors preferred the school breakfast operation program with 3 traditional menus and 2 convenience menus per 5 day,
foodservice staff, with a price range of
, and tray serving. Parents preferred the school breakfast operation with 5 traditional menus per 5 day,
foodservice staff, with a price range of
, and tray serving. About a half of school dietitians considered that elementary schools were appropriate for the suggested school breakfast operation program. But, 68.2% of school foodservice officials at the educational board, 69.1% of staff members of foodservice contractors, and 38.1% of parents considered high schools to be the suitable model. Therefore, it indicated the need to recognize the different opinions among breakfast operation-related people and take these factors into consideration in developing the school breakfast program.

Journal of the Korean Society of Food Culture, volume 22, issue 5, 2007, Pages 633~644
The study results regarding the ingredient differences, sensory characteristics, purchasing type, usage and improvement direction for home-made traditional doenjang and factory produced commercial doenjang are as follows. The L-value indicates that home-made traditional doenjang has a higher value in average than the factory produce done, and the a-value indicates the opposite. Home-made traditional doenjang had higher water content than commercial doenjang ; however the pH values of commercial doenjang and home-made were 5.34 and 5.32 respectively, which was very similar. Factory produced commercial doenjang showed higher protein content than the home-made traditional doenjang. Regarding the correlation between ingredients, there was a significantly negative relationship between the L-value and a-value but a significantly positive relationship between the L-value and b-value. There were no significant relationship with water content, pH and protein content. For the color and taste, which are the sensory characteristics, commercial doenjang showed higher value than the traditional doenjang, but for smell, the values were similar. Regarding grittiness, the factory produced commercial doenjang had bigger particles than the traditional doenjang. Preference was a bit higher in the traditional doenjang. Of the 380 study subjects, most were from 40 to 49 years old (65.5%), and the most family type were nuclear families which was a total of 400 people (69%). Moreover, the most residential type was apartment which was 355people (61.2%), and for the monthly income, more than 2,510,000won was 48.3%. For the educational background, college education was 304 people (52.4%), and high school education was 199 people, 34.3%. In the usage, most of the people eat doenjang more than once a week, and usually their parents make the doenjang. People used both commercial doenjang and home-made traditional doenjang >home-made only >factory produced commercial doenjang only in that order. The reasons for using the home-made traditional doenjang aredelicate taste and flavor>more nutritious> anti-cancer ingredients in that order. The reason they use the factory produced commercial doenjang is because they don't know how to make it at home. The things that needed to be improved in the home-made traditional doenjang are bad smell> entire quality> flavor> color in order, indicating that studies for reducing bad smell are required. The things that needed to be improved in the factory produced commercial doenjang are taste & flavor> entire quality>bad smell> color in that order, indicating that people are more concern about it tasting like home-made than the smell. From the above results, we can see that better functional doenjang should be developed for family health and to increase the consumption of the doenjang, which has good functional psychological activities, also more various types of foods that use doenjang and scientific studies to reduce the home-made doenjang smell should be continuously studied. Moreover, studies on how to make the factory produced commercial doenjang taste more like traditional doenjang should be performed.

Journal of the Korean Society of Food Culture, volume 22, issue 5, 2007, Pages 645~651
Male weanling Sprague Dawley rats were used to evaluate the effect of dietary rice starch with different particle size on growth performance, intestinal function and proliferation. There were two dietary treatment: rice starch (RS), ultra finely pulverized rice starch with less than
size (PRS). They were eight rats per treatment. In vitro digestibility, body weight change and organs weight were evaluated. Serum GPT, GOT and blood urea nitrogen were analyzed. Transit time, short chain fatty acid contents of cecum, and cell proliferation of duodenum and jejunum were measured. In vitro digestibility of PRS was higher than that of RS. Rats fed ultra finely pulverized rice starch for 3 weeks grew faster than rats fed rice starch. PRS group has higher weights of liver, kidney, spleen and epididymal fat pad, perhaps as a result of increased digestibility. GPT and GOT were not different between two groups. Blood urea nitrogen was higher in RS-fed rats than that of PRS-fed rats. Feeding ultra finely pulverized rice starch resulted in a proliferation of duodenum significantly. These results suggest that ultra finely pulverized rice starch increases the growth performance in weanling animals with reduced number of cells in the cell cycle of small intestine.
