This paper investigated the effects of L-lysine (Lys)/L-arginine (Arg) on the physicochemical and quality characteristics of sodium-reduced and phosphate-free pork sausage. The results showed that the addition of Lys/Arg decreased cooking loss (CL), but increased water holding capacity (WHC) and textural parameters (hardness, cohesiveness and chewiness) of pork sausage. The addition of Lys/Arg caused the decrease in L* values and b* values, and increase in a* values, compared with the control. The sausage treated with Lys/Arg had better sensory color, flavor, taste and slice traits, but lower P and Na content than the commercial one in China. Also, Lys- or Arg-treatment was conducive to the formation of dense and uniform three-dimensional network. The results suggest that Lys/Arg has a potential in the manufacture of pork sausage.
