Seasoned laver
Pyropia
spp. is one of the most well-known Korean traditional seafoods, and is becoming more popular worldwide. Various mixed oils are used in the preparation of seasoned laver; however, there is no information available regarding the effects of the blending ratio of oils on the quality of seasoned laver. In this study, the effects of the blending ratio of corn, sesame, and perilla oils on the oxidation and sensory quality of seasoned laver were monitored and optimized using a response surface methodology. An increase in the proportion of corn and sesame oils resulted in an excellent oxidation induction time, whereas a high ratio of perilla oil reduced the thermal oxidative stability of the mixed oil. In the sensory test, the seasoned laver with the highest proportion of sesame oil was preferred. The optimal blending ratio (v/v) of corn, sesame, and perilla oils for both oxidation induction time (
Y
_{1}
) and sensory score (
Y
_{2}
) was 92.3, 6.0, and 1.7%. Under optimal conditions, the experimental values of
Y
_{1}
and
Y
_{2}
were 4.41 ± 0.3h and 5.58 ± 0.8 points, and were similar to the predicted values (4.34 h and 5.13 points). Our results for the monitoring and optimization of the blending ratio provide useful information for seasoned laver processing companies.
Pyropia
spp., to which various vegetable oils have been applied, at an ultra-high-temperature (UHT) of 300℃ for about 10 s (
Hwang, 2013
;
Jo et al., 1995
). It is one of the most well-known Korean traditional seafoods, and has become popular worldwide because of its special taste, compactness, texture, and health benefits (
Park et al., 2001
;
Cho et al., 2009
). The value of seasoned laver products exported in 2013 was USD 180 million (
Korea Customs Service, 2014
).
In the preparation of seasoned laver, vegetable oils are used as the major ingredient (usually 30–40%, w/w) (
Lee, 1999
;
Jo et al., 1995
). Our previous study, thermal oxidative stability of six vegetable oils (sesame, perilla, sunflower, rice bran, canola, and olive) was investigated (
Kim et al., 2015
). In commercial seasoned laver products, a mixture of corn, sesame, and perilla oils is most frequently used. In particular, because it is inexpensive, the corn oil content of seasoned laver oils generally exceeds 80% (w/w).
The blending ratio of seasoned laver oils is usually decided on the basis of economical and sensory considerations. However, the effects of the blending ratio on the oxidative stability of seasoned laver oils have not yet been studied. During the processing of seasoned laver, UHT treatment at 300℃ induces the thermal oxidation of the oils (
Jo et al., 1995
). In addition, due to the high oil content of the seasoned laver, the thermal oxidative stability of the oil is the most important factor in determining the product’s shelf life (
Wang et al., 2010
;
Hasenhuettl and Wan, 1992
).
In this study, the effects of the blending ratio of corn, sesame, and perilla oils on the oxidation and sensory quality of seasoned laver were monitored and optimized using a response surface methodology (RSM). In addition, the variations in price with different blending ratios of seasoned laver oils were also monitored. The thermal oxidative stability of the oils was evaluated by determination of the oxidation induction time using a Rancimat instrument.

Y

, and

). The oxidation induction time of the mixed oil increased with an increase in the proportion of corn and sesame oils. In concontrast, perilla oil accelerated the thermal oxidation of the mixed oil. Sesame oil contains natural antioxidants such as sesamin, sesamol, and sesamolin, and a high content of oleic and linoleic acids, which promote the stability of oxidation (
Bayder et al., 1999
;
Lee et al., 2008
). However, perilla oil contains a high content (59%) of oxidation-susceptible linolenic acid, which can induce rapid oxidation during UHT treatment (
Wang, 2010
;
Zhao, 2012
). These results indicate that the blending ratio of corn, sesame, and perilla oils significantly influences the thermal oxidation stability of the UHT processed seasoned laver. In Korea, sesame and perilla oils are most frequently used for seasoned laver preparation because of their excellent savory taste (
Yang et al., 2012
). In this sensory test, the seasoned laver with a high proportion of sesame oil (Nos. 3 and 5 in
Table 3
) was the most preferred product. When considering the overall results of this study, perilla oil was found to be ineffective in terms of oxidation stability, sensory properties, and the cost of the seasoned laver.

), seasoned laver was prepared using a mixture of corn (92.3%, v/v), sesame (6.0%), and perilla (1.7%) oils. Under multiple optimal conditions, the experimental values of

were 4.41 ± 0.3 h and 5.58 ± 0.8 points, and were similar to the predicted values calculated in the RSM design.
In conclusion, our results show the effects of the blending ratio of corn, sesame, and perilla oils on the oxidation and sensory quality of seasoned laver. The price of the blended oil was also monitored. In addition, this study was designed and analyzed using an RSM. Therefore, the optimal conditions and values of the dependent variables in the RSM design matrix may be useful information for seasoned laver processing companies.

Introduction

Seasoned laver is a unique seaweed product that is prepared by roasting a sheet of dried laver
Materials and Methods

- Materials

Corn (CJ Cheiljedang Co., Ltd., Seoul, Korea), sesame (Chamgoeul Co. Ltd., Seoul, Korea), and perilla (Chamgoeul Co., Ltd.) oils were purchased from a local market and stored in a refrigerator until their use in the experiment. Sheet-type dried laver (
- Experimental design

A central composite rotatable design (CCRD;
Montgomery, 1996
) was used to monitor the effects of the blending ratio of corn, sesame, and perilla oils on the oxidation and sensory quality of the seasoned laver. The oil blending ratio (v/v) at the center point was: corn 86.3 %, sesame 10.7 %, and perilla 3.0%. The center point was based on the average blending ratio of the commercial seasoned laver in Korean market (
Table 1
). Two independent variables (
- X1= corn oil / (sesame oil + perilla oil) = 6.33
- X2= sesame oil / perilla oil = 3.60

- Optimization procedure

The blending ratio of corn, sesame, and perilla oils was individually optimized for the oxidation induction time (
- Preparation of seasoned laver

Seasoned laver was prepared using an automatic roasting machine (G-400, Woojeong machine Co., Ltd., Seoul, Korea). A sheet of dried laver (2.5 g) was roasted at 150℃ for 10 s. It was the roasted again at 300℃ for 10 s, after the application of salt (0.08 g) and the mixed oil (1.6 g) containing corn, sesame, and perilla oils.
- Oxidative stability using a Rancimat method

For the measurement of the oxidative stability of seasoned laver oil, the oil samples were isolated from the seasoned laver product using a press machine. The oxidative stability of the seasoned laver oils was evaluated by measuring the oxidation induction time using a Rancimat instrument (Metrohm CH series 743, MetrohmAG, Herisau, Switzerland). The oxidation process was monitored for a 3 g sample of oil using an air velocity of 20 L/h at 120℃. During the Rancimat test, volatile compounds, such as formic acid, were rapidly produced and carried by the stream of air to be collected in deionized water. The vapors were continually monitored by measuring the conductivity of the deionized water. The end point was determined in hours.
- Sensory evaluation

The sensory evaluation of the seasoned laver samples was performed with a panel consisting of 10 members (3 male, 7 female, aged 25-40 years). All 11 samples were evaluated simultaneously in a randomized order. The quality attributes selected for sensory evaluation were flavor, taste, and crispiness (
Liang et al., 2008
;
Gkatzionis et al., 2013
;
Sinija and Mishra, 2011
). Panel members were asked to take two or three samples to taste and provide a score for each. Between tastings each panel member rinsed their mouth with lukewarm water. The sensory factors assigned to each of the quality attributes were: dislike very much (1), dislike moderately (2), dislike slightly (3), neither like or dislike (4), like slightly (5), like moderately (6), and like very much (7).
Results and Discussion

- Diagnostic checking of the fitted models

It was necessary to fit a quadratic polynomial equation to describe the behavior of the dependent variables on the independent variables (
Bezerra et al., 2008
). The response surface regression procedure was used to fit the quadratic polynomial equation to the experimental data. The significance of all the coefficients of the constant, linear (
