Özet

The effect of bay leaf (BLO), thyme (TO), rosemary (RO), black seed (BSO), sage (SO), grape seed (GSO), flaxseed (FSO) and lemon (LO) essential oil from vegetable extracted on lipid oxidation and some other quality parameter of frozen chub mackerel during frozen storage at -20A degrees C were examined over a period of 11 months. Taste, odour, texture and overall acceptability of control samples were given 'unacceptable' scores by the sixth month. Based primarily on sensory data, the shelf-lives of frozen chub mackerel were found 6 month for samples treated with oil of TO, RO, BSO, SO and LO and 7 month for samples treated with BLO, GSO and FSO. During the 11-months storing process of chub mackerel, the values of pH, total volatile basic nitrogen (TVB-N), trimethylamine nitrogen (TMA-N) both in control group samples and samples treated with oils did not reach to deterioration levels. Thiobarbituric acid (TBA) and free fatty acid (FFA) values for all treatments remained lower than TBA and FFA values of control samples throughout the 11 month storage period. Particularly, thyme oil treatment is effective in delaying lipid oxidation. Bay leaf, rosemary, sage, lemon, flaxseed and grape seed oils were fallowed.
