Effects of different additives on colorimetry and melanosis prevention of Atlantic seabob shrimp (Xyphopenaeus kroyeri) stored under refrigeration

The aim of this work was to evaluate the effect of the food additives, sodium chloride, sodium metabisulfite, sodium nitrite and citric acid on the anti-melanotic activity in shrimp (Xyphopenaeus kroyeri) kept under refrigeration for 13 days post-capture.
