  The microbial and chemical profiles of ten types of Jordanian sausage products were monitored on the production day and after 60 days of storage at 4°C. Samples were collected on days 0 and day 60 and tests of pH value, moisture content, bacterial counts and physical appearance were conducted. The findings designated slight statistically significant changes in samples' quality during the storage time. Thus, storing sausage at 4°C is satisfactory to preserve its quality. The hygienic quality of the raw materials is the main factor affecting the final value of the product. All the products in the study fit the Jordanian standards of specification.

  Problem statement: This study was based on the hypothesis that by adding low concentrations of emulsifier salts, may specifically act on the cross linking bonds of the protein matrix, to the original brine (storage medium) it would be possible to induce meltability and stretchability in white brined cheese. Approach: A new apparatus for measuring the actual stretchability was designed and constructed; measurements on different cheese samples proved its validity and reliability to measure stretchability. The apparatus was used to evaluate the effect of five types of emulsifier salts under different processing conditions. Results: It was found that by adding 0.2% (w/w) Puromelt C1 or Monosodium phosphate to the brine of white brined cheese, higher levels of stretchability and meltability were induced after 2-4 weeks of storage. Conclusion: Addition of emulsifying salts was proved to be effective method in inducing meltability and stretchability of white brined cheese. Type of salt, its concentration, type of cheese and soaking time are factors that should be controlled to attain the optimum results.

  Jameed is a fermented dried dairy product in the form of stone hard balls or other shapes produced by straining the heated buttermilk on cloth mesh bags, salting the formed paste by kneading, shaping and drying in the sun. This product is reconstituted after disintegration to be used in the preparation of Mansaf, the national dish in Jordan, which is basically lamb meat cooked in Jameed sauce (Sharab, Mareece) and served on cooked rice. The addition of Carrageenan (0.15%), to the Jameed paste resulted in improvement of solar dried Jameed with significant result for Carrageenan treatment as evaluated by wettability and syneresis test. Whipping of the paste to which carrageenan was used, added an additional improvement to the solubility of Jameed and stability of its dispersion. The standard plate, yeast and mould counts in goat Jameed were higher than their levels in sheep Jameed. Also the count of the freeze-dried samples are general higher than solar dried ones.

  In developing country including Jordan, the per capita consumption average is 31.1 kg/person per year. In Jordan there is an increased 10% per capita consumption of meat and meat products between 2006 and 2008. This increase in meat consumption is mainly due to the highly nutritive value that added by meat and meat products to the Jordanian consumer. This study described the quality of some sausages as Mortedella plan, Mortedella with olive, Mortedella with pepper, Mortedella with pistachio, silsisio, Frankfurters, Smoked salami and their proximate composition and nutritional values for Jordanian consumer. The proximate analysis as percentage of carbohydrate, fat, protein, ash, moisture and pH, of mentioned local sausages were: 4.3, 16.7, 12.7571, 2.2714, 63.9429 and 6.3429, respectively.
