Functional properties of a white grape dietary fiber concentrate (WGDF) obtained from wine industry residues were determined with a view to their use as potential functional ingredient in seafood products. The main features of interest of WGDF are that it is a natural product containing high concentrations of dietary fiber (DF) with a high-soluble DF(More)
Vibrational spectroscopy (mid FTIR and FT-Raman) was used to monitor lipids extracted from hake fillets during frozen storage. Kramer shear resistance was used as a marker of texture changes and lipid damage was also investigated by following the development of conjugated dienes and free fatty acids by spectrophotometric methods. Results show that the(More)
The potential of low field NMR (LF NMR) as a fast monitoring technique to estimate the quality of hake (Merluccius merluccius) frozen stored at -10°C for up to 6months was evaluated. LF NMR clearly detected three populations of water: water strongly bound to macromolecules (T(2b)), trapped water (T(21)) and free water (T(22)). As storage time increased, and(More)
Low field NMR T2 transverse relaxation measurements were performed on muscle samples from sixty hake (Merluccius merluccius, L.). Fish fillets from hake stored in ice for 3 and 14 days were subjected to different freezing methods (air blast, liquid nitrogen or walk-in freezer) and storage conditions (-20 and -10°C for 5 days, 8 and 18 weeks). Distribution(More)
A general overview, focusing on new trends in the different techniques used in restructured seafood product processing has been described in this work. Heat-induced gelation has been more widely studied in scientific literature than cold gelation technology. This latter technology includes the use of hydrocolloids (alginates and glucomannan) or enzymes(More)
The effectiveness of a white grape dietary fiber concentrate (WGDF) against hemoglobin-mediated oxidation of washed cod mince, with and without 10% added herring oil, was evaluated during ice storage. WGDF was added at two different levels: 2 and 4% based on final weight. An ethanol extract with the ethanol extractable polyphenols (EPP) and the(More)
First processing steps of fish are species-dependent and have common practices for wild and for farmed fish. Fish farming does, however, have certain advantages over traditional fisheries in that the processor can influence postmortem biochemistry and various quality parameters. This review summarizes information about the primary processing of fish based(More)
