Considerable amounts of fish processing byproducts are discarded each year. By developing enzyme technologies for protein recovery and modification, production of a broad spectrum of food ingredients and industrial products may be possible. Hydrolyzed vegetable and milk proteins are widely used food ingredients. There are few hydrolyzed fish protein foods with the exception of East Asian condiments and sauces. This review describes various manufacturing techniques for fish protein hydrolysates… 

Aquatic food protein hydrolysates.

Publisher Summary The proper utilization of limited aquatic resources has been a topic of great interest for many decades. The application of proteases to fish processing waste leads to the

Muscle Protein Hydrolysates and Amino Acid Composition in Fish

This review discusses muscle protein hydrolysates generated from the muscles of various fish species, as well as their amino acid composition, and highlights their functional properties and bioactivity.

Proteins From Fish Processing By-Products

Technological advances in obtaining, identifying and producing protein hydrolysates from fish residues by enzymatic action: bioactive and techno-functional properties, application in food, market and regulation

This review analyzes the advances in the technology for obtaining, identifying, and producing fish protein hydrolysates (FPH) by enzymatic action, with an emphasis on fish residues, highlighting the application of FPH in food, market analysis and global regulations.

Peptides from Fish By-product Protein Hydrolysates and Its Functional Properties: an Overview

Different methods for the production of protein hydrolysis as well as current research about several fish by-products protein hydrolysates bioactive properties are reviewed, aiming the dual objective: adding value to these underutilized by- products and minimizing their negative impact on the environment.

A Review of Protein Hydrolysates and Bioactive Peptides Deriving from Wastes Generated by Fish Processing

Production of purified bioactive peptides from various fish waste protein hydrolysates via enzymatic hydrolysis after enzyme screening and optimization is reviewed, illustrating that peptides with low molecular weight and short amino acid sequences are more potent as bio active peptides.

Chemical processing methods for protein recovery from marine by-products and underutilized fish species

The great demand for quality fish protein in the world is growing at a faster pace than can be met with traditional resources and has in many places led to significant over fishing, often requiring governmental intervention.



Production of Fish Protein Hydrolysates with Bacterial Proteases; Yield and Nutritional Value

Three bacterial proteases were selected for their activity on casein per unit cost. Conditions for inactivation were determined. Fish protein was hydrolyzed without water addition. Protein was


The results obtained in these experiments show that this type of product can make a significant contribution to populations ingesting low protein diets such as those based on wheat, rice or corn.

Modification of technological properties of fish protein concentrates.

An upgrading of the quality of concentrates produced by hot extraction can be achieved by partial enzymatic or chemical deaggregation, hydrolysis followed by the plastein reaction, or formation of suitable derivatives.

Nutritional Value of Proteins from Different Food Sources. A Review

Methods used for protein quality evaluation, research needs to facilitate labeling foods forprotein quality, and factors influencing protein quality including amino acid analysis, digestion, food processing, antinutrients, and protein-energy relationships are discussed.

Value-added products from underutilized fish species.

Various possibilities for product development using mince from low-cost fishery resources are discussed, namely, surimi and surimi-based products, sausages, fermented products, protein concentrates and hydrolysates, extruded products, and biotechnological possibilities.

Studies on the recovery of proteinaceous substances from chicken heads: II—Application of pepsin to the production of protein hydrolysate

Minced heads of broiler chickens were hydrolysed under various conditions using porcine pepsin. It was found that hydrolysis goes at an optimum rate at 55°C and pH 1.5 following the addition of 750 g

Characterization of enzymic sunflower protein hydrolyzates

Sunflower meal (SFM) proteins are denatured during the process of oil extraction, which greatly limits their functional and nutritional properties. Protein hydrolysates were prepared from defatted

Preparation and Use of Inexpensive Crude Pepsin for Enzyme Hydrolysis of Fish

A practical method was developed for producing crude pepsin preparations of sufficient purity to allow efficient operation of the FPH process and samples of crude enzyme prepared by autodigestion of hog stomach mucosa gave high pepsIn activity.

Debittering and nutritional upgrading of enzymic casein hydrolysates

Commercially-available proteolytic enzymes were used to prepare casein hydrolysates. Treatment of the hydrolysates with activated carbon resulted in the elimination of the bitter taste which
