TERRA, Nelcindo Nascimento et al. Employment of fluid whey in the elaboration of mortadela. Cienc. Rural [online]. 2009, vol.39, n.3, pp.885-890. ISSN 1678-4596.

The objective of this paper was to verify the possibility of incorporating fluid whey in mortadela. The water employed in the elaboration of mortadela was replaced in the proportions of 50, 75 and 100% by fluid whey. Sensorial characteristics (color, odor, flavor and texture), pH, color, emulsion stability of mortadela were evaluated, as well as the percentage of fat and liquid released after thermal treatment of mortadela emulsion. The addition of fluid whey did not exert significant influence on the sensorial characteristics, pH, color, emulsion stability and liquid released after the thermal treatments in mortadela. Water substitutions of 75 and 100% by fluid whey in the elaboration of mortadela promoted a lower percentage of fat released after thermal treatment. Based on the obtained results it is clear that fluid whey can be used to substitute 100% of ice used in the elaboration of mortadela, thus avoiding that exceeding fluid whey be released in the environment.

Keywords : mortadela; fluid whey; sensorial analysis; emulsion stability.
