  • Fish bones’ second life

    A new project is exploring means of turning fish waste into value-added products such as neutraceuticals while attempting to make fisheries a greener industry in developing countries. Only about 50% of every fish sold as fillet is actually eaten.  Often, fish heads, viscera, skin and bones are discarded. In this context, the SECUREFISH project, funded by the EU, aims at reducing the […]
  • Marine Bioproducts AS testing viability of marine peptones for high-value products via fermentation

    The commercial viability of the use of marine-derived peptones to produce high-value products via fermentation will be examined through a project led by the Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) and Norway-based Marine Bioproducts AS(MB). Referred to as MarineIB, the project began in April 2012 and seeks to establish new supply chains for the production of high-value chemicals, thereby offering a cost-effective, […]
  • A more profitable use for fish waste

    The majority of fish waste is turned into fishmeal or fish oil. But what if there was a way for processors to earn three to four times more money from selling their fish waste? Gurry Investments, a Boston-based investment firm established in 2000, is using its technology to produce organic fertilizer using waste from farmed fish. The company, working with […]

  • Crayfish protein may be useful as emulsifier: Study

    A study published in LWT – Food Science and Technology has suggested that crayfish protein extracted from a flour-like by-product powder produces a stable emulsion with good behavior at the oil/water interface, and may have potential applications in the food industry. “We have demonstrated that crayfish proteins at pH 8 show higher solubility, smaller aggregates and better interfacial activity (higher surface pressure […]

  • Cod muscles extract shown to decrease mortality in the mouse model, .

    Treatment of cancer patients with anthracycline antibiotic doxorubicin (DOX) may be complicated by development of acute and chronic congestive heart failure (CHF), malignant arrhythmias and death. The aim of this study was to test whether an aqueous low molecular weight (LMW) extract from cod muscle decreases acute mortality in the mouse model of acute CHF caused by DOX. This effect […]
  • Low cost, high purity fish protein isolate hits global market

    Advances with membrane technology means lower price proteins from fish are available to food manufacturers globally, with potential to not only replace whey proteins in some applications, but offer a base protein ingredient. Last year, GE Water and Process Technologies and Norcape Biotechnology turned their patented membrane filtration and separation technology to the fish protein industry. Talking exclusively to, […]
  • Fish Protein Hydrolysates Beat Alternatives for Foods

    Using the commercial protease Alcalase, researchers from the Centro de Investigacion en Alimentacion y Desarrollo produced hydrolysates from fish muscle that could substitute functional compounds such as bovine serum albumin and sodium caseinate. The Mexican researchers used Alcalase to produce hydrolysates from Pacific whiting muscle with degrees of hydrolysis of 10, 15, and 20 per cent. The functionality of the […]
