Amla extract

Capability of Amla Extract on Quality Retardation of Chilled Stored Indian White Prawn (Fenneropenaeus Indicus Milne Edwards, 1837) (Published)

Capability of amla extract was investigated on Indian white prawn  (Fenneropenaeus  indicus)  stored  at 4°C for  28  days. FTIR was done to obtain distinctive molecular components of analysed extract. Amla  ethanolic  extract  was  assigned to  total  phenolic  content , total  flavonoid  content  and  PPO  inhibition  assay  to  evaluate its potentiality. Biochemical parameters, total viable count, melanosis formation and sensory evaluation were performed to investigate efficacy of amla and to determine shelf-life stability of chilled shrimp. Present study found amla extract to be potent to retard quality loss by lowering the increasing biochemical indices, microbial load and black spot formation as well as by  maintaining sensory quality compare to untreated group (p<0.05).
