The Preservative effect of brined solution on mushroom at
tropical room temperature of 26-300c was examined. The
effect of various concentrations of brine solutions on
color, texture, and smell as well as shelf duration were
examined. The experiment was laid out in a Complete
Randomized Design (CRD) and each treatment replicated 4
times including control. Sensory qualities of blanched and
packed mushroom were examined by panelists using a hedonic
scale ranking, differences were analyzed using Analysis of
Result indicates that at brine concentration of 35% quality parameter of color, texture and smell remained intact for duration of six (6) days.
