Pengaruh Penambahan Bawang Putih dan Lama Fermentasi Terhadap Mutu Mikrobiologis dan Organoleptik Bebontot
The Effects of Garlic Addition and Fermentation Time on the Microbiological and Organoleptic Quality of Bebontot
Bebontot is one of fermented meat product produced in Bali island, Indonesia. Chopped pork
and fat are mixed with spices and salt. The mixer are wrapped in spatha of areca tree (Areca
catechu L.) and fermented for several days to produce bebontot. The research was conducted
to find out the effects of garlic in bebontot formulation and fermentation time on the
bebontot quality. The result showed that the addition of garlic could suppressed significantly
the growth of Enterobacteriaceae and Staphylococcus aureus, but not for lactic acid bacteria
(LAB) and micrococci bacteria. During fermentation all investigated bacteria were change
where LAB increased and Enterobacteriacea and Staph. aureus decreased during process of
fermentation. The organoleptic characteristicts of bebontot were influenced significantly by
combination of both treatments.
