Quality changes in frankfurter sausages with yam (Dioscorea japonica) powder added were investigated during their storage at 10°C for six weeks. The sausage samples were prepared using four concentrations of yam powder: 0% (C), 0.5% (T1), 1.0% (T2), and 2.0% (w/w) (T3). After the addition of yam powder, the crude protein contents decreased, but the crude fat and carbohydrate contents increased. The thiobarbituric acid values during the storage of the frankfurter sausages were lower in the

With the increase in the yam concentration, the L* and a* values tended to decrease, whereas the b* value increased. The instrumental texture analysis showed that the hardness value decreased with the increase in the yam concentration. The first indication of sensorial quality deterioration was noticed at week 4 for T3 and at week 5 for C, T1, and T2. In conclusion, the quality and shelf-life of the frankfurter sausages were not noticeably influenced by the addition of yam powder with a concentration of up to 1.0% (w/w), but the functional and health-promoting effects of yam were positively incorporated.
