    Abstract

    Nila is a kind of traditional fish usually used as foodstuff at Indonesian society especially at South Sumatera area. The objective of this research was to study the nitrogen gas application for nila chips packaging. Polypropilene plastic with thichness of 0.6 mm was used as the packaging material, filled with nitrogen gas at full volume, sealed and stored under various times (O,2O, 40 and 60 days) and temperatures (30 and 40 centigrade). Control, without filling with nitrogen gas, was also performed to compare the result. The nila chips were analyzed for the moisture content, rancidity values, browning index and total microbes. The results showed that moisture content, peroxide value and browning index increased during storage, with linier correlation model. The total microbes were also increased of about one log cycle during 60 days of storage. Nitrogen gas package could be able to decrease deterioration of nila chips during storage at ambient temperature. The rate of quality changes was decreased to 82-89 % when nitrogen applied in the package. The value of Q10 for all of quality parameters was higher when nitrogen applied in the package compare to control. It was found nitrogen in the package not only to be preservation agent but also increase temperature sensitivity of nila chips quality during storage.
