The effects of black garlic (Allium sativum L.) addition on the quality characteristics of low-fat and low-salt meatballs during cold storage were investigated. Meatballs were divided into five groups: none (control), 0.1% ascorbic acid (T1), 1% black garlic (T2), 2% black garlic (T3), and 3% black garlic (T4). pH and lightness values were lower in the treatment groups than in controls by storage time. pH and lightness values were decreased with increasing addition of black garlic (p0.05). Based on the current results, addition of black garlic could be recommended for preventing protein degradation in low-salt and low-fat meatball. Further, black garlic could be useful to the pork meat product industry as a food additive.
