In this paper, the relationship between protein structure changes and in vitro digestion of preserved egg white (PEW) during pickling was studied. Results showed that as the pickling time increased, moisture content of PEW exhibited a decreasing trend, pH value and hardness of PEW exhibited an increasing trend. Environmental Scanning Electron Microscopy (ESEM) revealed that alkali-treated duck egg white could form a more compact gel network structure during pickling. Transmission Electron… Expand
