High-added value functional seafood products for human health from seafood by- products by innovative mild processing

Major achievements in 2004

A strong collaboration has been developed between 3 SMEs and the R&D partners in the production of fish hydrolysates from many species. Further, the isolation of peptides, protein fractions and characterisation for possible health effects has been carried out. A screening test indicates that some hydrolysed fish proteins can be associated with anti-hypertensive compounds, anti-cancer molecules, anti-oxidative activities and calcitonin and calcitonin gene related peptide activities.
