Fermentation and Acidification Ingredients

  • Frédéric Leroy
  • Luc De Vuyst


The distinct sensory qualities and remarkable shelf-life characteristics of fermented sausages, as compared to cooked sausages, are largely due to acidification of the meat batter. Traditionally, acidification of the raw meat is the result of a microbial fermentation process, i.e. lactic acid production by lactic acid bacteria (LAB). Acidification is generally combined with protection from oxygen (stuffing into casings), extensive salting, and curing (Chap. 1), and with an ageing stage for product maturation. The latter stage can be absent, short, or long, depending on the type of product, and leads to drying, resulting in a lower water activity, as well as to a complex and desired flavor formation (Campbell-Platt & Cook, 1995 ; Lücke, 1998). Sometimes, smoking or heating is applied as a last step in the manufacturing process. Heating is common in the United States, where regulations require a core temperature of 58.3°C before selling the end-product (Lücke, 1998). The...
