Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine changes in the quality of yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares) during precooking and sterilization. Samples were obtained at three stages: after thawing, after precooking and after sterilization. Total volatile basic nitrogen (TVB-N), trimethylamine nitrogen (TMA-N), histamine and pH analyses were performed in order to determine the quality of the samples.
