  • The main objective of this study was to understand the factors affecting the acceptance of fermented soybean products. Seventy-six consumers rated the acceptance and perceived intensity of 4 types of Korean and 4 types of Japanese style fermented soybean products. The consumer's food variety seeking tendency and the general attitude toward various fermented soybean products were measured. Ten descriptive analysis panelists evaluated the sensory characteristics of the 8 samples. Univariate and multivariate statistical analyses were applied to the data sets. Fermented soybean products consisting of sweet and moist sensory characteristics were preferred the most. The variety seeking tendency was not an effective predictor for understanding the acceptance of the products tasted in the experiment. K-means cluster analysis identified 3 sub-consumer segments sharing a common preference pattern for the 8 samples within each group. These 3 groups somewhat differed in the consumption frequency, acceptance, and familiarity of various fermented soybean products in general.

  • Bacillus cereus is a gram-positive, rod-shaped, spore-forming bacterium that has been isolated from contaminated fermented soybean food products and from the environment. B. cereus produces diarrheal and emetic toxins and has caused many outbreaks of foodborne diseases. In this study, we investigated whether B. amyloliquefaciens RD7-7, isolated from rice doenjang (Korean fermented soybean paste), a traditional Korean fermented soybean food, shows antimicrobial activity against B. cereus and regulates its toxin gene expression. B. amyloliquefaciens RD7-7 exhibited strong antibacterial activity against B. cereus and inhibited the expression of B. cereus toxin-related genes (groEL, nheA, nheC, and entFM). We also found that addition of water extracts of soybean and buckwheat soksungjang (Korean fermented soybean paste made in a short time) fermented with B. amyloliquefaciens RD7-7 significantly reduced the growth and toxin expression of B. cereus. These results indicate that B. amyloliquefaciens RD7-7 could be used to control B. cereus growth and toxin production in the fermented soybean food industry. Our findings also provide a basis for the development of candidate biological control agents against B. cereus to improve the safety of fermented soybean food products.

  • This study was conducted to evaluate the possible utility of 3 Aspergillus oryzae strains (designated as SCF-6, SCF-37, and JJSH-1), isolated from Korean traditional fermented materials, as starter cultures in the soybean paste industry. Doenjang (fermented soybean paste) was made with the A. oryzae strains described above, and its quality attributes were analyzed during a 60-day aging period. No significant differences in pH, moisture, or salt content were detected among the doenjang varieties made with the 3 Aspergillus strains. The concentration of amino-nitrogen, an indicator of doenjang aging, increased in each sample during the aging period. After the 60-day aging period, the contents of amino-nitrogen and free amino acid in doenjang made with SCF-6 showed the highest concentrations among the tested doenjang products: 971.6 and 8,064.9 mg%, respectively. Measurements of the color of doenjang showed that lightness and yellowness decreased during the aging period, but redness increased. After the 60-day aging period, the ${\gamma}$-aminobutyric-n-acid (GABA) concentrations in doenjang made with SCF-6 and SCF-37 were 61.3 and 53.7 mg%, respectively. In doenjang samples, aflatoxin was not detected and the concentrations of biogenic amines (histamine and tyramine) were 2.55-5.60 mg/kg and 3.70-5.87 mg/kg, respectively. These results indicated that A. oryzae SCF-6 isolated from traditional fermented foods could be useful as a starter culture in the soybean paste industry.

  • This study investigated the detection of naturally occurring preservatives in fermented soybean products. Benzoic acid was identified in all of the analyzed samples (gochujang, ganjang, doenjang, and cheonggugjang). The amounts of benzoic acid were in the range of 0.85-11.69 ppm in gochujang, 1.13-7.95 ppm in ganjang, 0.74-17.77 ppm in doenjang, and 1.03-7.64 ppm in cheonggugjang. Propionic acid was found in 24 of 29 gochujang samples, 21 of 30 ganjang samples, 31 of 33 doenjang samples, and 28 of 30 cheonggugjang samples. The amounts of propionic acid ranged from N.D. (not detected) to 49.29 ppm in gochujang, N.D. to 144.67 ppm in ganjang, N.D. to 309.14 ppm in doenjang, and N.D. to 113.07 ppm in cheonggugjang. Among the fermented soybean products, doenjang had the highest average benzoic acid content whereas cheonggugjang had the highest average propionic acid content.

  • This study was conducted to investigate the effects of educating 5th graders in elementary school about Korean traditional fermented soy products. The percentage of correct answers from the educated group increased after nutrition education compared to the non-educated group (p<0.001). The perceptions and attitudes regarding Korean traditional fermented soy products increased significantly after nutrition education (p<0.05). Analysis of the preference for Korean traditional fermented soy products based on participation in nutrition education showed that both groups were not significantly different in all categories including soybean paste, soy sauce, and red pepper paste. The investigation on differences in intake frequency of Korean traditional fermented soy products showed that both groups did not display statistically significant differences in all categories including soybean paste, soy sauce, and red pepper paste. These results confirmed that the nutrition education activity program had positive effects in correcting 5th graders' knowledge, perceptions and attitudes regarding Korean traditional fermented soy products. However, it did not significantly affect their preferences and intake frequency. This indicates that short-term education cannot effect changes in preference or actual behaviors. Therefore, continuous nutrition education activities are required.

  • To investigate the consumption pattern of traditional fermented soybean products a survey was con-ducted to the subjects composed of 308 housewives in busan yangsan and ulsan. Doenjang was rated among one of the often-used traditional foods in Korean meal preparation. 67.2% fo the respondents used Doenjang once or twice a week and 22.7% every day and by the educational level the lower in education level used more. Doenjang has been prepared by housewives themselves(46.9%) or by their relatives(30.7%) for the most important reason of good taste and by purchasing of commercial products(22.4%) for convenience. By regional groups the frequency to use commercial products of Doenjang was higher in Ulsan and the younger or the higher in education level showed the higher frequency. The consump-tion pattern of Gochujang was very similar to that of Doenjang. Chunggukjang which has peculiar flav-our showed very low consumption with being rarely used or having not eaten by 60.3% of subjects. Gan-jang was consumed mainly once or twice a week and jin-ganjang was preferred than Guk-ganjang. In the preparing methods Guk-ganjang have been made by housewives themselves(31.0%) by their relativ-es(29.5%) or by purchasing of commercial products(31.0%) and Jin-ganjang mainly by purchasing of commercial products(65.0%) which showed higher consumption frequency of commercial products com-pared with Doenjang and Gochujang.

  • This study evaluates the quality properties of soy-paste soybean cultivar for fermented soybean products. The six soybean varieties that include Jinpung, Saedanbaek, Daepung 2, Pyeongwon, Cheonga and Saeolkong were used in the experiment. The range of water uptake ratio, hardness after soaking and hardness after steaming were 117.00~131.33%, 1.65~3.30 kg and 0.05~0.14 kg, respectively. The physicochemical analysis indicated the following: Moisture content, 63.27~68.72%; pH, 6.43~6.60; total acidity, 0.27~0.45%. Color values for L value (lightness), a value (redness), and b value (yellowness) ranged from 39.07~67.92, 7.64~11.79, and 7.48~20.67, respectively. The amylase and protease activities of the Saedanbaek samples were the highest among all cultivars. The amount of viscous substance in the fermented soybean products by cultivars ranged from 5.93 to 8.37%, and Saedanbaek was the highest. The total viable cells counts for soybean fermented products were 9.11~9.42 log CFU/g. The amino-type nitrogen contents of all samples were in the range of 401.07 to 524.47 mg% and Saedanbaek cultivars showed the highest content (524.47 mg%). Based on the results, Saedanbaek will be suitable as a soy-paste soybean cultivar and the quality standards for the fermentation process of the fermented soybean products.

  • Cooked soybean, soybean curd, soymilk residue and fermented soybean Meju products were prepared in the laboratory and the protein supplementary effect of these foods to the rice diet was determined by the rat feeding experiments. The soybean products providing 20% of the dietary protein were added to steamed rice and the protein digestibility (TD), Biological Value(BV), NPU, PER and Partial Carcass Nitrogen Value of the diets were measured. The protein supplementary effect of soybean products indicated that the non-fermented products generally improved the protein quality of the rice diet, whereas the fermented products did not but reduced it in some cases. There was observed a possible antinutritional effect for the diet supplemented with Home-made Meju. This growth retarding effect of Home-made Meju disappeared during the subsequent ripening in the brine for 6 months.

  • The potential antioxidant activities of methanolic extracts from soybean and rice fermented with Monascus sp. were investigated. M. pilosus IFO 480 and M. anka IFO 478 were screened as a suitable strain to promote the antioxidant activities in soybean- and rice- fermentation. The methanol extracts from soybean and rice after fermenting for 20 days at $30^{\circ}C$ resulted in a significant increase in the antioxidant capacities expressed as radical (ABTS and DPPH) scavenging assay and peroxidation inhibition (%) by thiocyanate method and increased (p<0.01) by a 2.6 to 3.1-fold compared with those of the unfermented products. The average antioxidant potentials of Monascus-fermented soybean extracts (MFSE) were significantly (p<0.01) stronger than Monascus-fermented rice extracts (MFRE). A linear correlations between free radical scavenging activity of MFSE and the total phenolics content (r=0.84) and total flavonoids content (r=0.81) were observed. These results indicated that MFSE exhibited stronger (p<0.01) antioxidant activity and contained significantly higher levels (p<0.05) of phenolics than MFRE.

  • This study analyses and compares the amino acid composition and available lysine content between Korean fermented soybean Meju and its products as well as home-made and commercially made products. The protein quality of the products was evaluated by the result, and the biological value of the proteins was estimated by using the regression equation for chemical score to biological value as calculated by B.O. Eggum. The amino-N content of soybean is found to be 85% of the total nitrogen content and is reduced to approximately 75% in the fermented products except home-made soysauce, where as the content of ammonia-N and other N-compounds is increased. The difference in protein quality between home-made and commercially made products is not found to be significant. The protein quality of soybean is not damaged greatly in the making of Meju but is seriously damaged during the long periods of ripening. After the ripening the chemical score of the products' protein is reduced to approximately one half of the original soybean protein and the available lysine content to $1/3{\sim}1/2$.
