ABSTRACT

The overall goal of this project was to determine if improvements reducing lipid oxidation in the production of mackerel surimi which we achieved in the laboratory could be attained in a pilot plant operation.  Other goals were to determine ways of improving the color of mackerel surimi, to study the distribution of lipid-soluble antioxidants in the polar and non-polar lipid fractions, to determine the nature of the antioxidants in mackerel light and dark muscle and their potential role in oxidation reactions, and to develop means of separating light and dark muscle tissue.  The work demonstrated that the laboratory technique of decreasing lipid oxidation could be achieved on a pilot plant scale.
