Physico-chemical characterization and skin gelatin rheology of four freshwater fish as alternative gelatin source

  title={Physico-chemical characterization and skin gelatin rheology of four freshwater fish as alternative gelatin source},
  author={I. Ratnasari},
This study aimed to assess the characteristics of skin gelatin of different freshwater fish. The subjected species was snakehead murrel (Channa striata), pangas catfish (Pangasius pangasius), walking catfish (Clarias batrachus), red snakehead (Channa micropeltes) of which skin gelatin was extracted in citric acid. The fish skin gelatin was tested for proximate composition (water, protein, ash and fat content), gel strength, viscosity, gelling temperature, melting temperature, pH, and… Expand

The Effect of Gelatin Addition from Various Fish Skin to the Physical and Chemical Properties of Chikuwa
Chikuwa is one of Japanese traditional fishery food product that commonly made from potato starch, fish surimi, and some spices. To enhance Chikuwa physical and chemical properties especially inExpand


Rheological properties of gelatin from silver carp skin compared to commercially available gelatins from different sources.
The results suggest that rheological measurements might be used to quickly estimate gel strength using less material and that the silver carp skin gelatin seemed to be of equal quality to some of the commercial gelatins. Expand
Structural and physical properties of gelatin extracted from different marine species: A comparative study
Gelatin from skins of several marine species were compared on the basis of their rheological characteristics (viscoelasticity and gel strength) and chemical/structural properties (amino acidExpand
Characterizations of fish gelatin films added with gellan and κ-carrageenan
Abstract Fish gelatin is known to be inferior to mammalian gelatins. Gellan and κ -carrageenan were added to improve properties of the fish gelatin films. Initially, polysaccharides were added toExpand
Physical and rheological properties of fish gelatin compared to mammalian gelatin
Abstract This study comprises characterisation of fish gelatin (FG) from cold water fish species, including rheological and optical rotation measurements. SEC-MALLS analysis revealed that fishExpand
Characterization of fish gelatin from surimi processing wastes: Thermal analysis and effect of transglutaminase on gel properties
Abstract Fish gelatin extraction from wastes of fish Herring species ( Tenualosa ilisha ) was carried out by a series of pretreatment with 0.2 M Ca(OH) 2 followed by 0.1 M citric acid and final waterExpand
Preparation and characterisation of gelatins from the skins of sin croaker (Johnius dussumieri) and shortfin scad (Decapterus macrosoma)
Abstract Gelatins were prepared from the skins of the tropical fish, sin croaker ( Johnius dussumeiri ) and shortfin scad ( Decapterus macrosoma ). Visual appearance, colour, pH, bloom strength,Expand
Rheological characterisation of gelatins from mammalian and marine sources
Abstract The aim of this work is to examine different blends of mammalian and fish gelatins and to investigate how the properties of the single component gels are altered in blends. Small deformationExpand
Gelatins from three cultured freshwater fish skins obtained by liming process
The physico-chemical properties of gelatins from the skins of Red tilapia, Walking catfish and Striped catfish obtained through a liming process for 14 days had very mild to undetectable fishy odour and had acceptable colour attributes, which were light yellowish to whitish. Expand
Giant squid skin gelatin: Chemical composition and biophysical characterization
Abstract Gelatin was extracted from the skin of giant squid (Dosidicus gigas) with a yield of 7.5% on a wet weight basis through a novel cold maturation process and it was chemical, physicochemicalExpand
Extraction and electrospinning of gelatin from fish skin.
Ultra-fine gelatin fibers were successfully fabricated by electrospinning from the solutions of Nile tilapia skin-extracted gelatin in either acetic acid or formic acid aqueous solutions, and a combination between smooth and beaded fibers was observed. Expand
