This means there was a decrease of moisture content (Ürküt & Yurdagel, 1985). (2014). [ Links ], Göğüş, A. K., & Kolsarıcı, N. (1992). Dry salting is a simple process whereby whole fish are eviscerated, cleaned, washed and packed with a layer of salt to draw out the juices which then produces brine. The increase in pH indicates the loss of quality (Latifa et al., 2014). The system is for smokehouses that are dry salting. Salt is an excellent bacteria repellent, therefore the correct salting of a fish does guarantee a healthy and hygienic food for consumption. (1973). Bacterial contamination of salted atlantic mackerel during processing (Abst. According to the obtained results, the quality was lower in fish treated with brine salting method, and pH value and microbial values (TMBC, TPBC, Yeasts-Moulds) were higher when compared to dry salting. Salt at appropriate concentrations inhibits the growth of bacteria and also aids the dehydration process. In the brine salting method, the cleaned fish were placed inside plastic jars of 5 liters, and brine was added until the fish was completely covered and brined in 20% salt solution, fish to salt solution ratio is 1:1. It is known that inorganic matter increases in salted fish and it depends on preservation period and salt rate. In Akdeniz Balıkçılık Kongresi (pp. Plate Count Agar (PCA, Merck, 1.05463) feedlot was used to get the total mesophilic aerobic bacteria count (TMBC) and total psychrophilic aerobic bacteria count (TPBC), 25 g sample was weighted using 225 ml sterile peptone water which was mixed in the stomacher (Mayo, HG 400V, Italy) and made homogenous. Drying food is the world's oldest known preservation method, and dried fish has a storage life of several years. (2007) on salted products, the protein rate in dry salted Salmo trutta magrostigma species was lower than its brine samples. [ Links ], Bilgin, Ş., Ertan, Ö. O., & Günlü, A. Brining is a wet cure equivalent of dry salting. Some of the factors involved in salting of fish which play important role are purity of salt, quantify of salt used, method of salting, and weather conditions, flavor of the product. Salting of seafood is done with salt. Packing Table. Another layer can be placed on top and the salting process repeated. (1997, Apr 9-11). Wrap the salt-cured, rinsed, and dried fish in … Not all fish species are adequate for salted and dried fish, some species are rich in fat, salt in contact with fat oxidizes, so salted and dried fish is best and more successful in whitefish with lean meat. Hillerod: FOSS. To determine the crude protein amount in the fish samples the EN ISO16634-1 method was used (Müller, 2014), lipid amount was determined using ISO 1443:1973 method (International Organization for Standardization, 1973) moisture was determined using Ludorff & Meyer (1973) method and crude ash content was determined using the burning method (Association of Official Analytical Chemists, 2000). Überlegungenzur berechnung der salz – und sauregehalte im fishgewebewasservon marinierten fischereierzeugnissen. 8–9 hours Either with dry salt or with a brine, salt curing was the only widely available method of preserving fish until the 19th century. In dry salting the butchered fish is split along the backbone and buried in salt (called a wet stack). [ Links ], Turan, H., & Erkoyuncu, İ. If you're starting with a whole fish, remove the head and tail and clean out the internal organs. The reason for the difference between our research and ours is the fish species, salting techniques, and storage period and storage temperature. The fish, on which both salting technologies were applied, were stored for 120 days at 4 ± 0.5 °C. Therefore it was observed that there is no regular increase or decrease in the pH measurements, and it was determined that there was a statistically significant relation between the pH values in DS and BS groups (P < 0.05). Yüzüncü Yıl Üniversitesi Ziraat Fakültesi Tarım Bilimleri Dergisi, 13(1), 55-59. (1989). The DS-1000 Dry Salting Unit is developed to dry salt fish fillets directly onto smoking grids. [ Links ], Ürküt, Y., & Yurdagel, Z. So match your choice of fish to your drying method. Inorganic matter and salt rates increase along the storage period in anchovy stored that had been salt cured and were in storage for 29 weeks, and that this condition affects other components (Kolsarici & Candoğan, 1997). 107-129). [ Links ], International Organization for Standardization – ISO. Another study performed using salted trout, showed that the pH value of the samples which were brine salted was higher when compared to dry salted samples (Bilgin et al., 2007), and this supports the results of our study. September 18, 2017, *Corresponding author: gkurtkaya@munzur.edu.tr. The results are similar to the results found in Yapar (1989) study in which the salt rate was determined to be 15.74% in dry salted trout and 11.74% in brine salted trout. The samples were divided into two groups, and dry salting method was applied to one of the groups and brine salting method to the other. Marcy-l'Etoile: Biomerieux. The fish is gutted, beheaded or ventrally split open and the viscera removed followed by washing. Microbiological and chemical qualities of salted grey mullet (Chalcalburnus tarichii Pallas, 1811). Quality loss of fish can occur very rapidly after catch [5]. The ripening of salted fishes is a biochemical process. During this period, biochemical changes occur in the tissue of fish, and protein and fat enzymes break up which cause these changes (Voskresensky, 1965). A wide variety of dry salting of fish options are available to you, such as form, certification, and packaging. Patır et al. (2013). http://dx.doi.org/10.1111/jfs.12291. Submerge the seafood in the brine for the required time (a strong brine will require a shorter time than a weak brine), in a cool place (20°C or less). One of these is salting. Changes occurring in the nature of the salts is the sardine canning fish. Refrigeration on fishing vessel. Salting fish dries the flesh because it draws out moisture, and so prevents bacterial growth. (1965). In hot weather it is preferable to store in the chiller. The reason for this increase is the disruption to the oxidation-reduction balance along with the effect of enzymes and bacteria, and the changes in the concentration of free hydrogen and hydroxyl ions (Işıklı, 2000; Varlık et al., 1993). The main purpose of salting is to separate water from the fish and replace it with salt. The oldest traditional way of preserving fish was to let the wind and sun dry it. Automatic dry salting of fish fillets directly onto smoking grids. In a study performed by Bilgin et al. The method used for analysis is the same that was used for coliform bacteria analysis, just the incubation was for 5 days at 20 °C temperature (Biomerieux TEMPO® YM, 80 001) (Biomerieux, 2013). Al-Asous & Al-Harbı (2016) discovered that protein value of the salted bluespot mullet increased throughout the storing process. [ Links ], Yapar, A. Medium sized dry and clean table salt purchased from the market was used in this process. Table 2 The microbial flora of salted chub during storage at 4 ± 0.5 °C (log cfu/g). 3, Processing: Part I, pp. This may be due to difference in specie being used. Dried fish can be stored in sealable plastic bags, glass jars, or airtight plastic containers. Drying or salting, either with dry salt or with brine, was the only widely available method of preserving fish until the 19th century. When it came to changes in yeast-mould count, it was determined that there was a statistically significant relation between raw material and DS and BS groups (P < 0.05). The effect of different salting tecniques on the chemical and microbiological quality of salted zahre (Vimba vimba tenella Nordman, 1840) (Master's thesis). The main purpose of salting is to separate water from the fish and replace it with salt. 250–500 g Advantages of salting fish: If less salt is used, the fish is suited for immediate consumption, but additional refrigeration is necessary for longer preserv… During the study, two types of salting methods were applied, and microbial changes were measured in chubs and a storage period was given all this date can be seen in Table 2. Coliform group bacteria was 2 ± 0 log cfu/g in raw material and it reached 5 ± 0 log cfu/g on the 15th day in the group treated with dry salt, and below detectable level (<10 cfu/g) in both groups in the remaining days in storage. Glass, enamel, glazed ceramic or stainless steel (never aluminium) container, Gilled and gutted finfish or large fillets, 2 kg or more After brining, the fish is briefly rinsed and submitted to drying. Ege University Journal of Fisheries & Aquatic Sciences, 24(3-4), 225-232. 30 minutes, Sources of Seafood Knowledge – from the Fisheries Research and Development Corporation, for information on fisheries research and development, Status of Australian Fish Stock (SAFS) reports, looking for a fish? n = 3; (mean value ± standard deviation) DS: Dry salted BS: Brine salted, P < 0.05. The salt and sugar also inhibit bacterial growth. [ Links ], Biomerieux. There are two main types of salting methods namely dry salting and wet salting [4]. An increase of 15.57% of dry matter in the sardine fish (S. pilchardus) stored for 10 months after being salted with 20% concentration of salt was observed. Samples of fish from each group was taken on the 15, 30, 45, 60, 90 and 120th day and was analyzed for nutritional component (crude protein, lipid, moisture, crude ash), pH value, salt content and the microbial flora (total mesophilic aerobic bacteria count, total coliform, total psychrophilic aerobic bacteria count, yeast and mould). When the two groups are assessed internally, it was determined that there is a statistically significant relation between the protein value in BS group and the days, and in DS and the days (P < 0.05). Marcy-l'Etoile: Biomerieux. The changes in the nutrient composition of chub used in the study was examined in the raw material and salted products in storage, and the results obtained from the research are given in Table 1. Nutritional quality analysis of bangladeshi fish species, M. tengra (Hamilton-Buchanan, 1822) preserved with different salt curing methods in laboratory condition. Salt curing is done with dry salt and is very close to pickling which involves using brine water solution for preservation. The yeast-mould numbers were 3 ± 0 log cfu/g in the fresh fish however it varied along the storage period, and by the end of 120th day, the number was 3 ± 0 log cfu/g in DS group and as 3 ± 0 log cfu/g in BS group. New York: Academic Press. The vegetable is then pounded to further break down the cell walls and release juice in order to create enough liquid brine to submerge the vegetables. The most commonly used methods of salting fish are liquid brining and dry salting. Su Dergisi, 2(7-8), 77-90. Prevent anemia. In dry salting method, the loss in lipid amount was less. In a study performed on a vimba vimba fish (V. vimba tenella), it was determined that the pH value decreased to 6.85 from 6.99 on the 7th day, and then increased to 7.37 for samples which used brine method, and that these values changed to 6.61 for (DS) and 6.71 for (BS) after being in storage for 118 days (Işıklı, 2000). [ Links ], Pourashouri, P., Yeganeh, S., & Shabanpour, B. While it was determined that high salt concentration causes protein loss, however in this study high salt concentration doesn't cause protein loss in dry salting method only in in brine (Kolsarici & Candoğan, 1997). Mühendislik Fakültesi Dergisi Gıda Mühendisliği Bölümü, 8(1), 59-68. pH value was measured using (INOLAB pH 7310 brand) pH meter at 16 ± 1 °C (Association of Official Analytical Chemists, 2000). 0.7–1 kg, 12–14 hours Intensive salt applied to cure the anchovy (Engraulis engrasicholus) chemical changes in fish. For thick, firm-fleshed white fish fillets, sprinkle them with a mixture of kosher salt and sugar (2:1 salt to sugar by weight), and rest for 45 minutes and up to 90 minutes in the fridge before cooking (resting the fish longer than that will give it a more cured texture). (2007). (2007) on salted products, the total lipid content was found to be 2.551 ± 0.157% in fresh fish, and on the 180th day of storage, this value decreased to 1.332 ± 0.119% in dry salted samples and to 1.039 ± 0.030% in brine salted samples. Salted fish, such as kippered herring or dried and salted cod, is fish cured with dry salt and thus preserved for later eating. Salting is often done before other preservation or preparation methods such as smoking, although it can also be done simply to add flavour. At the end of 120th day, decrease in moisture rates was observed and recorded as 75 ± 2% in brine salting group and 57 ± 2% in the dry salting group. For the first two months, analyses of these samples were performed once every 15 days, and then they were performed on a monthly basis after that 60th, 90th and 120th days. Dry salting, brine salting and mixed salting are commonly used methods in salting of fish. Salting is one of the techniques for preserving fish and has been practiced for a long period of time; it is an alternative to lowering the water activity of fish flesh. If you still see moisture on the fish, continue drying. Ege Unv. Depending on raw material and storage period, it was determined that there was no statistically significant relation between groups regarding coliform bacteria numbers in products to which salting was applied to (P > 0.05). In fresh fish pH is close to neutral, first it decreases due to lactic acid arising from death, however then it increases because of deterioration. n = 3; (mean value ± standard deviation), DS: Dry salted, BS: Brine salted, P < 0.05. TMBC was left in incubation for 72 hours at 30 ± 1 °C (International Organization for Standardization, 2003). London: Shipowners’ Club. ISO 4833-1:2003 - Microbiology of the food chain - Horizontal method for the enumeration of microorganisms -- Part 1: Colony count at 30 degrees C by the pour plate technique. [ Links ], Merritt, J. H. (1988). (2006) reported that the total mesophilic aerobic bacterial count in salted grey mullet (Chalcalburnus tarichii) stored at 4 ± 1 °C ranged from 2.0 to 5.0 log cfu/g, with average 3.94 log cfu/g. A diluent of 10-1 was prepared in this manner, and other sub-dilutions were prepared from that dilution. [ Links ], Kılınççeker, O., & Küçüköner, E. (2003). The Scientific Research Projects Administration Unit of Munzur University supported this research. Brining is a wet cure equivalent of dry salting. Leave the skin on or remove it according to your personal taste. According to the statistical assessment performed, it was determined that the difference between two groups with respect to moisture values was significant (P < 0.05). It was frequently called “junk” or “salt horse”. (*) shows statistical differences of “Two-tailed Independent T-test” between two different applications (DS or BS) of same parameters (crude protein, lipid, moisture, crude ash, pH, and NaCl) in same line. The easiest way to dry fish is by using very salty brine, 3 parts water to 1 part salt. The reason for this bacterial increase could be that the bacteria adapted to the environment and the skin that was not removed became a microbial source during the process. Duncan’s multiple range tests were applied in order to do multiple means comparison. Cover, and leave in a cool place (20°C or less) for the required time. Scoring is also practiced if the flesh portion is thick for facilitating better salt penetration. (1985). It was determined that there is an increase in total aerobic mesophilic, psycrophile bacteria and enumeration of yeast and mould as storage period increased, while coliform bacteria decreased (P < 0.05). Salting is one of the oldest food preservation methods. Salt-cured meat or salted meat is meat or fish preserved or cured with salt. Thus, the water concertation in fish decreases. Infn Fischw, 41(1), 47-59. The cards used for the analysis were read by the barcode reader. 17). Faculty of Fisheries. The obtained results are in agreement with the results other researches have been able to obtain so far. Dry salting is used to draw the moisture out of food, which helps to reduce the growth of unwanted bacteria. [ Links ], International Organization for Standardization – ISO. Fen Bilimleri Enstitüsü Dergisi, 1(1), 39-50. Iranian Journal of Fisheries Sciences, 14(1), 176-187. In the research, according to statistical assessment made in respect to % salt amounts recorded along the storage period, it was determined that there was a statistically significant relation between the salt values used in dry salted and brine salted groups (P < 0.05). An amount of salt was put on the bottom of plastic jars of 5 liters. The salt concentration is usually below 2%. Therefore it exhibited an irregular change during the preservation period. The investigation of some physical & chemical changes in Trout applied different salting techniques (Master’s thesis). (2003). Salted fish drying is seasonally done for six months, pertaining to the summer season when there is only little amount of rain and the producers have ample time to dry and preserve the fish. Tempo yeasts-moulds is an automatic test done by the Tempo device and it counts yeast and mould in 72-76 hours at 25 °C. 100 g or less, 1 hour for each 500 g Some researchers (Turan & Erkoyuncu 1997) have determined that the dry matter amount in O. mykiss and S. salar which were salted using different salting methods increased during storage period at 4 °C when compared to the initial values. [ Links ], Nino De Onshuus, Y. Salt amount was determined using the Mohr method and resisting the titration with 0.1 N AgNO3 accompanied by K2CrO4 indicator (Karl, 1994). Religious Customs: Salting and drying fish is practiced today only in remote areas without access to electricity. Küçüköner & Akyüz (1992) found 7.5x105-7.5x106 cfu/g, and Nino de Onshuus (1974) between 6.5x106-1.67x108 cfu/g. Practical Application: Quality properties of salted chub during storage at 4 ± 0.5 °C, Al-Asous, A. I., & Al-Harbı, A. H. (2016). The process of salting and drying preserves the fish that can be stored for months. The obtained results support our results. American Journal of Food and Nurition, 2(6), 100-107. There are two main types of salt-curing used in the fish industry: dry salting and pickle-curing. In cooler climates, water is removed using dehydrator machines. [ Links ], Karl, H. (1994). Dry salting:This is the most widely used method of fish curing. Different letters (a-d) in same column show statistical differences of “Duncan Multiply Range Test” among different storage times (0-120 days) for same application (DS or BS) and parameter (crude protein, lipid, moisture, crude ash, pH, and NaCl). DRY SALTING - ON GRIDS. Carve a slit in each fish's belly and remove its … After salting, finfish can be served "as is"—for example as in gravalax—or dried or smoked to further preserve it. The salt and sugar also inhibit bacterial growth. The Drying Process After salting it for two days, rinse the cured fish fillets under cold water. Drying outdoors under the sun is possible in some places. Pourashouri et al. Mix brine. Ankara: Ankara Üniversitesi Ziraat Fakültesi Gıda Böl. Revista del Institudo de Investigaciones Technologicas, 16(91), 33-43. Be careful not to over-dry the fish. After cleaning the fish, put a few of them on the bottom of the box or basket. Only). During each analysis period, 5 fish were chosen randomly from each group among the samples stored in the refrigerator, and then their fillets were drained and homogenized prior to analyses excluding the microbial analyses. 1 hour ... Dry salting has the. Saltfish is a preserved fish with all the water removed. For the purposes of salting fish water is always the liquid, plus whatever is dissolved in the water. In dry salting the butchered fish is split along the backbone and buried in salt (called a wet stack). While total psycrophile bacteria count was determined to be 6 ± 0 log cfu/g in raw material, by the 120th day in storage it was determined to be 6 ± 0 log cfu/g in the group treated with DS and as 7 ± 0 log cfu/g in the group treated with BS. Salt curing, much like freezing, can affect the texture of your food. In G. Borgstrom (Ed. Table 1 Proximate and physicochemical analysis of chub samples. (2014). By brining the fish you remove the blood from the meat. https://www.motherearthnews.com/.../salted-fish-recipe-zm0z16jjzqui Our results are in agreement with the results from this research. Veterinarnomeditsinski. The reason for this may be due to the fish species being used, the salt amount, difference of salting methods and storage period. Todorov (1975) research shows that coliform was found on the surface of Atlantic mackerel however it could not be found in the fish. Quality control methods and principles in aquaculture (174 p., No. Wooden boxes or baskets are used for dry salting. The quality of the protective effect of certain additives in the production of salted trout, Ege Üniversitesi.
