The viability of using ohmic "resistance" heating as a process alternative to
inactivating the heat-stable softening enzyme in Pacific whiting surimi was
investigated. A fast heating rate through the enzyme-active temperature range
would reduce the damage to the gelling network in surimi-based products.

Fish ball is an extruded surimi-based product that is popular among Asian communities. In the manufacturing of fish ball, optimum floatation is extremely important for maximal production. Factors affecting floatation of fish ball in water were investigated. The density of threadfin bream surimi paste significantly decreased (P<O.05) as moisture content...
Optimization of comminuting and heating conditions for surimi gel preparation obtained from three fish species: Alaska pollock (AP) (Theragra chalcogramma), Pacific whiting (PW) (Merluccius productus), and threadfin bream (TB) (Nemipterus spp.) was the focus of this study. Three parameters during comminution were separately evaluated: chopping time, chopping temperature, and salting...
Effects of thermal and electron beam (e-beam) processing on microbial
inactivation and physichochemical properties of surimi and surimi seafood were
investigated. Thermal-death-time (TDT) concept was used to model
Staphylococcus aureus inactivation by heat and e-beam. Gurney-Lurie charts were
used to estimate temperature during thermal processing of surimi seafood. Dose
There are presently two successful methods used to refine fish muscle proteins: surimi and fish protein isolate (FPI). Both surimi and FPI have the ability to form an elastic gel upon comminution and heating. However, their gelation behaviors are different as they are refined in a biochemically opposite way based...
Characteristics of films obtained from fish myofibrillar proteins extracted from various solubilization methods were investigated. In this study, we utilized three agents to solubilize fish myofibrillar proteins from surimi, which are sodium chloride, sodium tripolyphosphate, and alkaline condition. The first part of this study focused on combination of sodium chloride...
Optimization programming techniques were applied to
develop the least cost formulations for Pacific whiting
surimi-based seafood (PWSBS). To develop the quality
constraint functions, texture and color of whiting surimi
gels were determined by torsion test and colorimeter,
respectively. Whiting surimi gels were produced by heating
at 90°C for 15 min....
Production of surimi represents a potential utilization of a number of low-valued
fish species, one of which, Pacific whiting, represents the largest biomass off the West
Coast of the United States. However, a protease enzyme softens the fish flesh in Pacific
whiting and limits the expansion of surimi production.
