The ethanol extracts of albedo fragments of bitter orange were added into fish lipid in the concentrations of 0, 0.5, 1.0, 2.0, 5.0 and 10.0mg/g and samples were stored at 25°C. The phenolic content and antioxidant activity determined in albedo fragments of bitter orange were 8.31±0.00 gGAE/100g and 0.537±0.004 µM trolox, respectively. 1.0 mg/g and 2.0 mg/g extract treated lipid samples were still in the range of good quality after the storage period by means of peroxide value. The lowest para-anisidine levels were recorded with the extract treatments of 2.0 mg/g, 1.0 mg/g and 0.5 mg/g with the findings 17.51±0.16, 17.81±0.05 and 18.68±0.28, respectively. The highest TBARS values were recorded in control samples (7.24±0.81 mg MDA/kg), whereas the lowest values were determined in fish lipids treated with 2.0 mg/g extracts (5.11±0.02 mg MDA/kg) at the end of the storage. The increase in the concentration of the extracts such as 5.0 and 10.0 mg/g had negative effect on oxidation stability. The choosing of appropriate antioxidant concentration is important in suppressing lipid oxidation.The most successful results were obtained with 1.0 mg/g and 2.0 mg/g extracts.
