The aim of this study was to produce a functional emulsion product enriched with anchovy (Engraulis encrasicholus) oil. Tomato and garlic extracts were added to perform oxidative stability. Tomato and garlic extracts were added to avoid oxidative degradation in such a product. The plant extracts delayed the formation of primary and secondary oxidation products. The value of conjugated diens (3.07 +/- 0.15) was markedly low in the emulsions containing garlic extract at the end of the storage period. The pAv values of the emulsions treated with the extracts were significantly (P < 0.01) lower than untreated samples. TBARS formation increased slightly, therewithal statistical difference was not observed in the samples treated with garlic extract during the storage. Strong odour and flavour of the garlic suppressed the odour of fish oil. The panellists preferred the flavour, odour and aroma characteristics of the samples treated with the extracts.
