The biochemical and organoleptic changes that took place in
raw whole Pacific shrimp and in the cooked meat during eight days
of iced storage were investigated.
A steady increase of both microbial numbers on the raw shrimp
and pH in the raw shrimp and cooked meat was observed.
Freezing is one of the important technologies for preservation of foods.
In this project, using surimi as a food model, thermophysical properties of frozen
foods were evaluated and the freezing process was simulated using a finite
To measure temperature-dependent thermal conductivity, a line-source
probe system was used. Effects...
The effects of ambient temperature storage on the chemical
and nutritional characteristics of phosphoric and sorbic acid-stabilized
fish autolysates were determined. Variations in sample
composition due to autolysis, deboning, and acidification were also
Autolysates of English sole (Parophrys vetulus), true cod
(Gadus macrocephalus), Dover sole (Microstomus pacificus), and
The storage life at 43°F of ground dover sole fillets (Microstomas pacificus) was determined microbiologically after treatment with
ionizing radiation and antimicrobial agents. Sodium benzoate, potassium
sorbate and the sodium salts of the methyl and propyl esters
of parahydroxybenzoic acid (MPB and PPB) all approximately doubled
the refrigerated storage life...
The abundance and low fat content of Pacific whiting
support Its use for the production of surimi. The
degradation of muscle proteins by myxosporidian secreted
proteinase(s) has been associated with its soft texture.
High residual activity is retained through the washing
process used in the production of surimi and precludes...
A novel method for isolating fish proteins by shifting pH to high acid or high
alkali pH was the focus of the study. Biochemical and physicochemical properties of
various pH-treated soluble fish proteins as a function of ionic strength were
determined. Effect of ionic strength and various storage conditions on...
