  • This study was conducted to evaluate the quality characteristics of pickled radish wrap supplemented with calcium chloride ($CaCl_2$) at different concentrations. With $CaCl_2$ supplementation, initial pH and acidity were 3.8~4.0 and 2.7~3.0% (w/v), respectively. During the 28 day-preservation at $4^{\circ}C$ or $50^{\circ}C$, the initial pH and acidity were maintained. However, when the pickled radish wrap was preserved at $25^{\circ}C$, it had lower pH (by 0.5) and higher acidity (by 1.9~2.2%) when compared with the initial values. The difference in color (${\Delta}E$-value) of the pickled radish wrap preserved at $50^{\circ}C$ was significant (${\Delta}E$-value 23~27), though the hardness of the sample prepared at $4^{\circ}C$ or $25^{\circ}C$ showed no distinguishable differences at various concentrations of $CaCl_2$ supplementation (0.1, 0.2, 03, 0.4, and 0.5%). However, once preserved at $50^{\circ}C$, it resulted in the greater hardness with the higher concentrations of $CaCl_2$ supplementation. In terms of softness, the overall trend in changes was similar to the hardness. A sensory evaluation using the samples preserved at $4^{\circ}C$ for 28 days demonstrated that the preparation with 0.4% $CaCl_2$ ranked highest in taste, hardness and overall acceptability. It wass suggested that supplementation with 0.4% $CaCl_2$ would be most appropriate to improve the textural properties of pickled radish wrap while maintaining its organoleptic quality.
