Pacific hake (Merluccius productus) fish protein hydrolysates with antioxidative properties Samaranayaka, Anusha Geethangani Perera

Abstract

Pacific hake (Merluccius productus) is an under-valued fish with high endogenous proteolytic activity due to parasitic infection by Kudoa paniformis. The objective of this research was to produce fish protein hydrolysates (FPH) with antioxidative properties from Pacific hake and to assess their potential to inhibit oxidative processes, in vivo. Proteolytic activity of fish homogenate was optimum at pH 5.25-5.50 and 52-55°C. Significant (p
