dc.description.abstractThe objective of this study was to analyse the effect of freezing and different culinary treatments (stir-fried and steamed) on the nutritional composition, bioactive compounds and the sensorial characteristics of zucchini. The zucchini was stir-fried for 8 minutes at 250ºC and steamed for 13 minutes at 100ºC. The freezing of raw zucchini does not significantly affect its nutritional compounds. The stir-frying process provoked important moisture loss; this being higher is zucchini that were previously frozen. The content of ash, proteins and fats, significantly increased in stir-fried zucchini. There was an important decrease in antioxidant activity and phenolic compounds when the zucchini was frozen. The antioxidant activity was much greater in the stir-fried produce in comparison to steamed and raw. Freezing the raw zucchini provoked a significant loss in its adhesiveness qualities and hardness. A lower hardness and adhesiveness was also observed in frozen zucchini after steamed and stir-fried, with these changes not being observed in freezing. The sensorial characteristics of previously frozen zucchini were valued less by the consumer as well as those that were steamed and stir-fried. The culinary treatment had less influence its sensorial values, only better valuations were observed in fresh steamed zucchini than the stir-fried.es
