  • New Study on Fish Protein Shows Link to Controlling High Blood Pressure

    Medical scientists at the University of Leicester are investigating how a species of fish from the Pacific Ocean could help provide answers to tackling chronic conditions such as hereditary high blood pressure and kidney disease. They are examining whether the Goby fish can help researchers locate genes linked to high blood pressure. This is because a protein called Urotensin II, […]
  • New Protein/Peptide Product from Fish Skin Chelated with Iron

    News posted originally in the Aquapreneur Forum from our colleagues in China Researchers at Zhejing Ocean University in Eastern China’s Zhejiang province have developed a process for producing protein/peptide from fish skin chelated with iron. They are cooperating with a local enterprise to commercialize the process. The process employs a physical method rather than a chemical one for the deodorization […]
  • 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 […]
