EVALUATION OF THE QUALITY OF OCTOPUSES MARKETED IN CÔTE D’IVOIRE
Keywords:microbiological contamination, biochemical alteration, processed octopuses, Côte d’Ivoire
This study was carried out during the year 2019 to 2021. It aims to situate the quality of frozen octopuses, intended for local and international markets in a processing company of fishery products in Côte d'Ivoire. The biochemical (self-check) analyzes (Total Volatile Basic Nitrogen (TVB)) focused on the method of distillation of an extract deproteinized by perchloric acid (HClO4). The microbiological (self-check) analyzes (Flora total mesophilic aerobic bacteria (FAMT), staphylococci, sulphite-reducing anaerobic bacteria (ASR), faecal coliforms and salmonella) focused on isolation and identification techniques. The various analyzes carried out by the National Laboratory for Agricultural Development Support (LANADA) made it possible to assess the satisfaction rates and the average biochemical and microbiological levels. All the averages (biochemical, microbiological) obtained are lower than the standards indicated. Salmonella are absent in all the products analyzed. faecal coliforms are present at a non-satisfaction rate of 7.48%.However, an improvement in manufacturing practices and preservation methods is in progress dispensable, in order to avoid poisoning the population.
