MARANGONI, Cristiane  and  MOURA, Neusa Fernandes de. Sensory profile of Italian salami with coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.) essential oil. Ciênc. Tecnol. Aliment. [online]. 2011, vol.31, n.1, pp.119-123. ISSN 0101-2061.

The descriptive terminology and sensory prolife of four samples of Italian salami were determined using a methodology based on the Quantitative Descriptive Analysis (QDA). A sensory panel consensually defined sensory descriptors, their respective reference materials, and the descriptive evaluation ballot. Twelve individuals were selected as judges and properly trained. They used the following criteria: discriminating power, reproducibility, and individual consensus. Twelve descriptors were determined showing similarities and differences among the Italian salami samples. Each descriptor was evaluated using a 10 cm non-structured scale. The data were analyzed by ANOVA, Tukey test, and the Principal Component Analysis (PCA). The salami with coriander essential oil (T3) had lower rancid taste and rancid odor, whereas the control (T1) showed high values of these sensory attributes. Regarding brightness, T4 showed the best result. For the other attributes, T1, T2, T3, and T4 were similar.

Keywords : salami; sensory analysis; quantitative descriptive analysis; principal component analysis.
