Jellyfish have been exploited commercially by Chinese as an important food for more than a thousand years. Semi-dried jellyfish represent a multi-million dollar seafood business in Asia. Traditional processing methods involve a multi-phase processing procedure using a mixture of salt (NaCl) and alum (AlK[SO4]2ċ12 H2O) to reduce the water content, decrease the pH, and firm the texture. Processed jellyfish have a special crunchy and crispy texture. They are then desalted in water before preparing… Expand

Mediterranean jellyfish as novel food: effects of thermal processing on antioxidant, phenolic, and protein contents
TLDR
It is shown thermal treatment can be used as a first stabilization step on three common Mediterranean jellyfish, the scyphomedusae Aurelia coerulea, Cotylorhiza tuberculata, Rhizostoma pulmo, differently affecting protein and phenolic contents of their main body parts. Expand

Distribution oftrans-6-hexadecenoic acid, 7-methyl-7-hexadecenoic acid and common fatty acids in lipids of the ocean sunfishMola mola
TLDR
In a sample of lipids from intestinal contentstrans-6- hexadecenoic acid was found to be the predominant C16 monoene, and was accompanied by comparatively large amounts of the 7-methyl-7-hexadecenosic acid, which is compatible with an exogenous origin for these acids and jellyfish, etc., as a predominant dietary material for the ocean sunfish.

TLDR
Nematocysts from the jellyfish Stomolophus meleagris were found to be of the type—heterotrichous microbasic euryteles, and toxin(s) were heat labile and rapidly destroyed when incubated with trypsin, indicating that they were protein. Expand
Hydra mesoglea: similarity of its amino acid and neutral sugar composition to that of vertebrate basal lamina.
TLDR
Data support the view that hydra mesoglea is chemically like components of vertebrate basal lamina, and some of the glucose and galactose components are present as a dimer stable to hydrolysis by strong alkali. Expand
