The purpose of the project is to obtain preliminary data on the storage stability of a fish oil-enriched, vegetable-based product intended as a supplement to the staple diet in sub-Saharan populations. FAO Fisheries Utilization Division is in the process of setting up a project which involves supplying families in certain African regions with fish oil, rich in docosahexaenoic acid. The role of this pre-project is to follow the development of possible oxidation products during the storage at ambient temperature of the fish oil-enriched tomato-and-onion sauce. The storage stability is assessed through sensory evaluation and chemical measurements of oxidation indices.
