Assessment of Physicochemical and Microbiological Quality of Seafood
AbstractThe aim of this work is to evaluate the physicochemical and microbiological attributesover a period of 5 months for two products from the category of Seafood:calamari rings and seafood cocktail. Appreciation of the freshness of seafood was tested bydetermining pH, easily hydrolysable nitrogen, the reaction Eber / Nessler andreaction with hydrogen sulphide according to SR ISO 2917:2007, SR 9065-7:2007and SR 9065-7:2008. Theresults of microbiological determinations for batch 1 revealed an increase inthe number of sulphite-reducing clostridia than the maximum limit. Resultsobtained from physico-chemical determinations were within the maximumpermissible by data legislation. The food quality is influenced by non-hygienicconditions of storage, handling and marketing.
