Frozen samples of Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba Dana) were found to contain 71·4% moisture, and on a dry matter basis 24·6% lipid, 49% protein (N × 6·25), 2·5% chitin, and 9·8% ash. Fatty acids from the crude lipid fraction were made up of 43·8% saturated, 32·8% mono-unsaturated, and 23·4% polyunsaturated types. Krill protein concentrate prepared as a light, free-flowing powder by isopropanol extraction of krill contained 74·3% crude protein, 15·4% ash, 6% chitin and 0·3% lipid, and… CONTINUE READING
