Abstract/OtherAbstract:
BACKGROUND: Sea urchin gonads are highly valued seafood that degenerates rapidly during the storage period. To study the influence of dissolved oxygen concentration on quality changes of sea urchin (Strongylocentrotus nudus) gonads, they were stored in artificial seawater saturated with oxygen, nitrogen or air at 5 ± 1 °C for 12 days. RESULTS: The sensory acceptability limit was 11-12, 6-7 and 7-8 days for gonads with oxygen, nitrogen or air packaging, respectively. Total volatile basic nitrogen (TVB-N) values reached 22.60 ± 1.32, 32.37 ± 1.37 and 24.91 ± 1.54 mg 100 g(-1) for gonads with oxygen, nitrogen or air packaging at the points of near to, exceeding and reaching the limit of sensory acceptability, indicating that TVB-N values of about 25 mg 100 g(-1) should be regarded as the limit of acceptability for sea urchin gonads. Relative ATP content values were 56.55%, 17.36% and 18.75% for gonads with oxygen, nitrogen or air packaging, respectively, on day 2. K-values were 19.37%, 25.05% and 29.02% for gonads with oxygen, nitrogen or air packaging, respectively, on day 2. Both pH and aerobic plate count values showed no significant difference (P > 0.05) for gonads with the three treatments. CONCLUSION: Gonads with oxygen packaging had lower sensory demerit point (P < 0.05) and TVB-N values (P < 0.05), and higher relative ATP content (P < 0.01) and K-values (P < 0.05), than that with nitrogen or air packaging, with an extended shelf life of 4-5 days during storage in artificial seawater at 5 ± 1 °C.
