About this book


"Seafoods" covers selected but most important aspects of fish processing with emphasis on quality, technology and nutraceutical applications in an up-to-date survey. Seafood quality is considered from the perspectives of the impact of slaughter procedures, practical evaluation, texture, measuring of fish content, protein functionality, histamine toxicity and flavour. Fish processing technology automation is discussed together with the problems of waste water treatment and possible uses of fish waste. Finally the sources, food and health applications of marine nutraceuticals and functional foods are discussed. The book summarises the current state of knowledge in the selected key research areas and contains ideas for future work. Researchers from different countries who are well recognised in their respective areas of expertise have contributed to this book, thus providing a diverse and global perspective of the issue of seafood quality, technology and nutraceutical applications.
