Abstract

A comparative study on the biochemical and microbiological quality of smoke dried R. rasbora prepared in smoking unit and traditionally smoke dried samples were collected from different districts of eastern Vidarbha has been made. The samples of smoke dried R. rasbora was prepared in smoking unit, the result showed that in smoking unit smoked samples had higher total protein, lipid, ash, less moisture content and less moisture reconstitution properties than traditional smoke dried samples. Total bacterial count and total fungal count were found higher in the samples of smoke dried R.. rasbora collected from different districts than smoked dried in smoking unit. While R. rasbora prepared in smoking unit free from all pathogenic bacteria on the other hand total colifrom, staphylococcus, E.coli, Micrococcus and Aspergillus sp. were present in traditional smoked dried samples. However Xanthomonas sp. was found in all samples.
