	%X This study evaluated the microbiological quality
and the sensory characteristics of carp fillets processed by the
sousvide method when stored at 2 and 10 °C. Four different
combinations of sauced–storage were studied then stored at 2 or 10
°C was evaluate periodically sensory, microbiological and
chemical quality. Batches stored at 2 °C had lower growth rates of
mesophiles and psychrotrophs. Moreover, these counts decreased
by increasing the heating temperature and time. Staphylococcus
aureus, Bacillus cereus, Clostridium perfringens and Listeria
monocytogenes were not found in any of the samples. The heat
treatment of 90 °C for 15 min and sauced was the most effective to
ensure the safety and extend the shelf-life of sousvide carp
preserving its sensory characteristics. This study establishes the
microbiological quality of sous vide carp and emphasizes the
relevance of the raw materials, heat treatment and storage
temperature to ensure the safety of the product.
