Comparative analysis of nutritional quality between Pomfret (Pampus argenteus) and Hilsa (Hilsa ilisha), preserved and cooked under different conditions


Author(s): Uttiya Jana and Sarmistha Chakrabarti

Abstract: The present study was conducted to compare the nutrients between Pampus argenteus and Hilsa ilisha. The nutrient contents of P. argenteus were higher than H. ilisha in the raw condition. They were both subjected to conventional cooking methods like open pan dry roasting, boiling, shallow frying and deep frying. They were also preserved raw up to 15 days with the preservative viz. a combination of salt and turmeric. The nutrient contents had changed due to preservation and cooking but the losses could be retained by the use of preservative. Nutrient retention mostly occurred in pomfret than in hilsa. The present study significantly revealed that cooked pomfret was beneficial due to adequate nutrient restoration and it could be preserved with preservative up to 15 days with minimal loss as compared to hilsa. Nutrient retention occurred mostly in deep frying method.
