The influence of different storage temperatures (5°C and 15°C) on the quality of vacuum-packed dry fermented sausage Poličan was determined. The salami mixture, finished salamis (the maturing period of 30 days), and salamis stored for 30, 60, 90, and 120 days were analysed. The analyses performed (physical/chemical, sensory, microbiological) found no differences in sensory properties or basic physical/chemical and microbiological parameters in the products after storage under different temperature conditions for 120 days. When stored at 15°C, the total content of biogenic amines in samples was higher than that for samples stored at 5°C with statistical differences P ≤ 0.05. If the principles of good manufacturing practice are observed at all phases of the technological process, the storage temperature of 15°C does not represent a risk as the consequent concentration of biogenic amines and polyamines remains extremely low.Keywords:
