This study was conducted to determine the physicochemical parameters of soumbara recipes based on beef, chicken, shrimp and bonga smoked fish produced at the Guinea Food Technology Institute (ITAG) to contribute to the (nutritional) improvement of the food of the populations. For the physicochemical composition, the average water content is between 6.97% for soumbara with beef; 4.95% for soumbara with smoked fish; 8.93% for soumbara with chicken and 11.34% for soumbara with shrimp. The Lipid contents are respectively: 27.03%; 19.22%; 29.65% and 13.09%. The carbohydrate contents are: 1.37% soumbara with beef and 1.08% soumbara with shrimp. The protein contents are respectively: 10.86%; 23.69%; 37.04% and 8.47%. The Ash contents are respectively: 0.03%; 0.07%; 0.03% and 0.02%. For PH the values are respectively: 3.04; 3.04; 3.03 and 2.03. The average acidity contents are respectively: 2.55%; 4.04%; 2.03% and 2.03%.
