Food has always been represented through a varied assortment of ways. Meat and meat products are essential for a balanced diet, and they can further be modified to give them a healthier appearance by adding ingredients considered beneficial for health or by eliminating components that are considered harmful.
The main objective of the study is the obtaining of a traditional meat product-smoked sausage, establishing some correlations between storage conditions and product shelf-life and physico-chemical characterization of the product. The product storage stability was monitored by following some physico-chemical and microbiological parameters like: moisture content (Drying-oven at 105 grd. C), protein (Kjeldahl method) and fat (Soxhlet method) content, pH, ammonia (quantitative and qualitative-Eber reaction), nitrite content (Griess method), sodium chloride content (Mohr method). The meat samples were analyzed during a 3 months period of time.
