The effect of chitosan on the rheological and sensorial properties of Apulia spreadable cheese during storage time was evaluated. The investigated spreadable cheese samples were stored at 4 degrees C. Storage modulus (G'), loss modulus (G''), tandelta, and the overall sensorial quality of the spreadable cheese were monitored for 24 d. Moreover, moisture content, pH, color, and lactic acid bacteria during storage time were evaluated. Results indicate that statistically significant differences in G', G'', and tandelta values and in the sensorial scores exist between the control sample and the spreadable cheese samples with chitosan. In particular, chitosan improved the rheological and sensorial properties of the spreadable cheese, particularly its softness. Moreover, its addition influenced the physicochemical properties of the investigated spreadable cheese during storage time, without affecting the dairy microflora.
