BACKGROUND Fish collagen has been paid increasing attention as an alternative to the mammalian counterpart owing to the abundance of fish skin as a processing by-product. Generally, the low yield of collagen extracted using the typical acid solubilisation process has led to the use of mammalian pepsin as an aid for increasing the yield. Alternatively, fish pepsin, especially from tuna stomach, can be used for the extraction of pepsin-solubilised collagen (PSC). Therefore the objective of this… CONTINUE READING
