Effect of Incorporation of Tribulusterrestris (Gokshura) on pH of Cooked Chevon Sausages

Sabahunoor ., Zuhaib Fayaz Bhat


A Study was undertaken to explore the possibility of utilization of Tribulusterrestris(Gokshura)as
an alternative to synthetic preservatives in meat products. Chevon sausages were used as a model
meat product and incorporated with different concentrations of Tribulusterrestris (0.25%, 0.50%,
0.75%) and were vacuum packed and assessed for pH under refrigerated (x B 1 1oC) conditions at
regular intervals of 0, 14, 28, 42 and 56 days. Incorporation of Tribulusterrestris significantly (P less than 0.05)
lowered pH as compared to control.
