Sashimi, a unique and simple fresh fish dish, is commonly served at a restaurant or as a family dinner in Japan. Because sashimi was created from fresh tuna loin, it is easily ruined by spoilage germs and pathogens, particularly when served without ice. Apart from ice, new preservatives must be investigated to avoid pathogenic and histamine-producing microorganisms. Liquid smoke (LS) contains antimicrobial chemicals including organic acids, carbonyl, and phenols from pyrolyzing coconut shells.

The researchers wanted to figure out how liquid smoke microencapsulation (LSM) is made, how effective it is against harmful germs, and how much total histamine is present in LSM-coated sashimi maintained at room temperature. Histamine content, antibacterial inhibitory activity, total microbial count (TPC) of Salmonella and E. coli, water content, and pH level were tested. According to the findings, LSM with maltodextrin: sago flour: 1% LS ratio of 10: 1: 5 efficiently prevented E. coli and Salmonella development and reduced histamine level in sashimi refrigerated for 6 days in the refrigerator.
