Changes in Dieldrin and p,p′-DDE Residues Following Cooking of Channel Catfish
Abstract:The influence of cooking (frying, baking, and smoking) on dieldrin and 1,1-dichloro-2,2-bis[4-chlorophenyl]ethylene (DDE) residues in treated channel catfish (Ictalarus punctatus) was determined. Dieldrin and DDE were significantly reduced (P < 0.05) during cooking of catfish by 50 to 65% (dry basis) and 50 to 80%, respectively. Smoking resulted in maximum reduction (82%) of DDE residues, while baking resulted in the least reductions for both dieldrin (50%) and DDE (50%) when compared to the other preparation methods.
